We have now entered into February of 2012. It's hard to believe that January has come and gone. Seems like just a few days ago we were getting ready to ring-in the new year. And here we are in February.

As I sit here and reflect on all of the changes and challenges we faced last year, I'm just...well....proud.

I won't bore you with the details, as I'm certainly not so self-absorbed to go on and on about our challenges when I know they don't compare at all to what most of the world is faced with every single day.

All I will tell you is that I have a new attitude on life and how to live it.

Just as Sloane can look into a mirror and make funny faces at herself, I, too, can look in the mirror of the last year and make the same faces.

Faces that say, "Bring it on!"

Or, "Is that all you got?!"

Or, "Nice try!"

I'm definitely not saying "2012 is going to be my year."

Nope. I'm not saying that at all.

Because that means I'm really only worried about the next year.

It's more like, "Watch out, life, here I come..."

Yeah. That's it exactly...
