I am cautiously optimistic about this year for some reason - a change from last year. Last year at this time I just had this foreboding feeling. Like 2011 was not going to be a pleasant year. It turns out I was right as 2011 was tough for everybody, me included.
Now 2012 is here and I've been thinking about what kind of things I want to accomplish. Usually I don't have a lot of resolutions for the new year, but today I have a ton of them. Things like, be more grateful, believe in God despite my feelings, be a better husband and father - all on the list.
This doesn't really have anything to do with music other than it, as always, is my constant companion. I received a lot of good music for Christmas and, Lord willing, the year will be filled with more.
Here's hoping the year 2012 will be a blessed one.
