As I sit here and reflect back on 2015, I realize that it feels like the fastest year I have ever lived.
I had no idea my life could change so much in such a short time.
At times, I felt as if the pace would crush me. Other times I felt as if I couldn’t squeeze enough from the moment.
This year brought with it the birth of my daughter along with my choice to stay at home with her. It also brought the passing of my two beloved grandmothers. A loss that I still have not completely processed.
It has been one of the happiest years of my life, and also one of the hardest.
In the past, I have always done a New Year’s Resolution at the start of each new year, but this year I have decided not to.
Because there is something about a New Year’s Resolution that makes us dwell on what went wrong in the previous year.
But doesn’t a year of living deserve to be celebrated and not regretted?
Because even the painful times or the mistakes that we made have their purpose.
I know I wouldn’t be who I am without them.
Instead, what I AM going to do is to focus on this word:
I so want to dive into that word and learn to find it repeatedly and consistently in my life.
But peace? She’s a fickle friend and lately she has been allusive.
I have so many thoughts that I am craving to put into words so that I can share them with you, my dear readers.
And they’ll come… soon I promise. I want to write them to you in a moment that isn’t tainted by the rush of the holiday season.
So this year, instead of feeling regret over my failures, I’m going to celebrate the life that was lived this past year and I’m going to allow that word – peace – to resonate deep within me.
So cheers to a new year! May it bring you what you’ve been searching for.
Until next time,
