I’m not sad you’re gone

Dear 2011, I have to say I’m not sad to see you go.  You had potential and at times, we seemed really good together.  You pushed me further than I thought I could go.  You made me say out loud what I want to be when I grow up.  You pulled me into the passenger seat as you raced through another semester of writing, road trips with friends and my camera, setting up a business, and living life with my boys.  You sped past the side streets of visa rejections and hospital visits.  And as for the end of the journey, well, lets just say if I would have know what was in store, I would have jumped out and taken my chances on getting run over.  But in spite of you, I finished the ride.  Now, I say goodbye and watch you leave.

2012, I see you there on the curb, ready to take me on another adventure.  You’re a welcome sight.  I have high hopes for you, for us.  I see your possibilities.  But here’s the deal, you can climb on in but I’m driving.  I’ve got my hands on the wheel and my faith in a GPS that knows more than you.   So be content to be the passenger, enjoy our trip and please, hang on to your seat!
