Day 24: Control
What did you finally let go of in 2011? What will you let go of in 2012?

This year I finally let go of the work fiasco that happened last year and really feel like I was able to establish myself in my new position. It was one of the goals I had for 2011 and I think that I pretty much accomplished it.
Next year, I'm going to try to let go of constantly worrying about what the future will hold and to focus on the present and acceptance. I can only control my actions and attitudes to situations that arise. As far as I know, I am not psychic and can't predict the future, so why continue worrying. This is going to be especially difficult for me, but it's a work in process!
Day 25: Celebrate
What did you celebrate in 2011? Are you looking forward to any celebrations in 2012?

My favorite celebrations of 2011 were mostly of birthday milestones:
My Grandpa's 90th Birthday
My Sister's 21st Birthday
The Hubs's 30th Birthday
Rowan's First Birthday
Next year, I'm looking forward to celebrating my two best friends having babies. And I'm trying to look forward to my 30th birthday, although right now it just makes me feel old!
