Today we say farewell. You have brought me many great experiences along with some not-so-great experiences. I’ve been blessed with new friendships, strengthened relationships, love and second chances. I’ve been saddened with losses, betrayal & heartbreak. There have been proud moments and disappointing moments. I’ve experienced fear, taken risks, tried new things. I’ve sought out joy, personal growth and healing.
A year ago today, I vividly remember proclaiming: I have a really good feeling 2015 is going to bring amazing things; it’s going to be a fantastic year. As another chapter in ‘my life story’ comes to a close, I want to soak in all the moments – the good, the bad, the ugly. Chalk them all up as being fantastic opportunities to experience all emotions and to grow.
2015, you have challenged & inspired me in many ways. A lot of us begin each year with resolutions that fall by the wayside after a couple of months. So my goal for this year is to be present & live each day in 2016 to the fullest. I will be grateful for each day that I have been given – because each day is a gift; a blessing. I will love deeply, show gratitude and aspire to be the best I can be.
Cheers to another year; another blessing!
