Here we are, Readers, at the end of another year. It’s amazing the things I’ve come through, the lessons I’ve learned, and the ways that I’ve grown in these 12 short months. Looking back at my life one year ago today, things were so much different, and looking back on those times serves as another helpful reminder that life keeps going even when you think your world is falling apart and that even thought at times it doesn’t seem like it, progress is always being made.
Here in Saudi there are no New Year traditions. Kids still have school tomorrow and people will still get up and go to work tomorrow morning. There are no days off, no public celebrations, and the only parties being held are probably by expats. But inside I feel the significance of this day. The end of a year, the beginning of a new one, another day/month/year to live life to the fullest, to make better choices, and to become happier with who I am and where I am.
As a thank you to all of you who keep me coming back here to write and who always have wise words, encouragement, and support to offer, I’m sharing my stats for this past year. There’s a sample below and you can also view the full report.
I’m wishing each and every one of you, no matter where on the globe you may be visiting me from, the happiest, most prosperous, most incredible 2013!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 62,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
