Well, I nearly was, but I’m still here. Fortunately, however, 2012 will shortly not be here. Which, I think, means “I won.” Or at least, I survived.
Yep, in short, 2012 as you will probably have gathered from the paucity of blog posts, has been an annus very horribilis.
Untold problems with the building of the new house (and no, it’s STILL not finished! And lawyers are involved), high stress levels, ill health and an unexpected brush with my old pal, Dr D, has made this year a “worst ever”. And I don’t say that lightly or without the experience of other bad years.
I am cognisant, however, that we learn the greatest lessons in the toughest of times, though just what the lesson has been in this past year, is something I’m still trying to unravel – yes, it’s that deeply complex – and ultimately, fundamentally simple.
I’m hopeful, that once the rubbish that will drag over from 2012 into 2013 is behind me, I will be able to start afresh and pick up not just where I left off, but also a few paces further along. On just which square of the game of life, I’ll find myself, I’m not sure but change is afoot (isn’t it always?!).
But for now let me just say, as I kick 2012 up the wazoo and bid it adieu, I hope that for all of us 2013 will be a year of peace, serenity, tranquillity, harmony, abundant joy and shed-loads of creativity. May it be a year in which dreams come true. In short, may 2013 be a “best-ever” year!
