You guys. How is already another new year? I’m not even used to writing 2014 on my checks and here it is, come and gone. Golly. I’ll level with you, for me, 2014 is going to be a hard year to beat! Professionally, personally and just as a person, I crossed a lot of hurdles in 2014. Actually, I think I crossed about five items off my life list in the last month alone. It’s an exciting time! Of course, as with most things in life…along with the sweet comes the bitter. My cycle of success and failure in the last 12 months is not something I will soon forget. This adventure into owning my own business has brought about some signifigant changes for me and it’s hard to think back to a year ago today, December 31, 2013, when I sat down and wrote out what I wanted to see in the year ahead. Now I sit down to map out the mountain to climb in 2015 and I find that I am not nearly as concerned about where I am going as much as who is coming along for the journey.
That means you.
That means all of you. All of you who stop by this acre of internet to gawk at the cat lady with a penchant for rhinestones. All of you who have chimed in to share your thoughts, your insights, your experiences. All of you who never leave comments but still check in 5 times a week just the same, always keeping my page views up and my ad revenue predictable (which, let me tell you, is kinda important for us self-employed types). And all of you who have been here, hanging out, giving me a place to plop down whatever particular breed crazy I feel like serving this week. All of you, thank you.
Best wishes to you and yours for a happy, safe, healthy, loaded-with-confetti-and-whatever-else-floats-your-boat, new year. Cheers to us!
