There were those years I'd heard people say things like, "I'm so ready for this year to be over." "This year was the worst!" "I can't wait to forget this year." "I don't think one more bad thing can happen to me this year." And honestly, I'd never been able to relate.
Not that I hadn't been through rough years along the way, I just thought that sounded so... well, dramatic. Then in 2011, I realized it was going to be my year. My turn to feel sorry for myself. To focus on all the things that went wrong. To look forward to a fresh start.
