Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everybody! It has hard to believe that 2011 has come and gone. 2012 arrived in such a flash. Time seems to go faster and faster, the older I get.

It will be a year of new possibilities. A year to do some of the things I didn't do last year. I will not do a summary of the past year. It is over and it is time to move on. This is part of my resolve to live in the now, and not dwell on the past and future. I will live day by day and not worry about things I can't change (easier said than done). Despite Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, I am still here to see yet another year (In July I will be 44). For this I am thankful. Because of this gift, I must enjoy life to the best of my abilities. I will try not to sweat the little things. This year I hope to get even more active in disability advocacy and speak more clearly for those without a voice. With challenges to independent living for people with disabilities there is much work to be done. I may even take it to the street.  I neglected my blog last year, but this year I plan to be more prolific. Now it is time to embrace 2012. Bring it on! I am up to whatever the year throws at me. Just hope I hit more home runs than strike outs.
