When I began to write this blog post, I wasn't exactly sure what I'd say. Quite frankly, I still don't. Was it a crazy year? Hell yes. THE craziest. Was it filled with happiness and hope? Eh, not really. Sometimes I'm happy I made certain decisions, and sometimes . . . not so much.
But, looking back, was there anything I'd change? Nope. I'm a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. I've learned to let go of those who don't support me. I finally stood up to those who used me. I concluded that joy is in the eye of the beholder, and true happiness occurs when you are comfortable with yourself.
I want to thank those who have supported me through the good and bad this past year, those who have believed in me more than I believe in myself, and those who might be more excited about future books than I am. (I know, that sounds horrible.) I am very grateful for the fortune I've had this past year, however small it may be. More people than I imagined read my books--some hated, some loved--but the point is they spared time to read.
I continue to carve my path, and it's still unclear as to what, exactly, I'll be doing ten years from now. In a perfect world, I'd write full-time. *crosses fingers* We'll see.
I hope 2012 brings you good health, much happiness and many reasons to celebrate, my friends.
