so. i am 41.
i started this blog 30 days before my 40th birthday.
as a challenge.
here i am..
still feeling like i am stuck in this transitional stage.
of life.
i would like to think most people
know who they are by now.
and i have to wonder am i the only one with 
this struggle.
i certainly know who i DON'T want to be.
but fear of the uncertainty,
the unknown,
keeps me stuck in these chains.

i know, when i look back over 2012,
i have made significant changes and accomplished many things towards who/what i know i want to be.
i have a huge support system in my husband, children, mom and best friend.

but learning to believe in 'me' has 
always been hard.
lack of confidence.
lack of belief.
certainly lack of patience.

when will i have the courage to stop flying with the crowd?

and learn to stand on my own 2 feet!

i would like to believe 2012 was year of baby steps and growth.
i want to shout '2013 is my year of incredible change'.

i owe it to myself to seek 'me'.
and as i watch my sons grow into men, i owe it to them.
to show them a confident mother,that no matter what, she pursued her passion in life.
she stood on her own 2 feet, strong and confident.

so these are my last thoughts of 2012 as i ponder the goals i want to set for myself in the upcoming year.

boys..go out there and grab life by it's horns. do what makes you happy. everyday. you are capable of ANYTHING you set your hearts out to do!
