When you look back...
Celebrate the victories, the accomplishments, the positive changes of the past year,
and don't forget to
Recognize the failures, the faults, and the regrets.
When you look forward...
Be humble enough to not boast about the victories and accomplishments of 2012,
Protect yourself from the failures, faults, and regrets that held you back in 2012, and
Look far enough that Christ has to help you get where you want to go!
