What are the odds that 2012 will be a turn around year for my family? If we look at the past two years, I would say that the odds might be against us and yet something 'feels' different about this new year. I can assure you that nothing has changed enough to make me feel confident that 2012 might bring about big changes, but I just cannot deny that there seems to be an air of difference, a turning of the tide, if you will.
So, I've been wondering if this itchy feeling I have been having--you know, I cannot sit still in my brain, I need to 'do something' but I have no idea what it is that needs doing--might be a foretelling of something good about to happen. Dare I wish for it? Dare I take the chance to embrace optimism and give myself fully to the opportunity it might bring? I think I might have to scratch the itch and see if we finally get some relief.
