Through it all, I’ve learned to ignore the little things that used to get me bent out of shape. I’ve learned to forgive and to let go of those situations where I feel someone has wronged me. I’ve learned to be thankful for everyone that is, has ever been, or will ever be in my life regardless of how long or how short it has been or will be. I’ve learned to be happy with the ups (opportunity, friends, love) and downs (losing loved ones, falling out with a friend or family member, getting ill, failing to accomplish a goal) because I know both outcomes have led me to life’s blessings.
Please start out 2012 safely & responsibly
No one wants to start the New Year off in an emergency room, particularly for something that’s avoidable.
If you do consume alcohol, drink responsibly. Please do not get behind the wheel of a car if you have consumed alcohol or if your driving ability is impaired for any reason. Have a designated driver; know what your limit is; and don’t drink to the point that you make yourself sick. The life you may save might just be yours.
