I am ready for 2016.
I have some goals for the year, but I’m not making resolutions. Just an intention to do the best I can each and every one of the 366 (it’s a leap year!) days I am given in 2016.
2015 brought a lot of lessons. I renewed old friendships and reawakened feelings I had forgotten how to feel. I had my heart beautifully broken and am okay with it. I both failed and won at being a single mom – every single day. I started writing this blog, two novels, and several songs. I was diagnosed with diabetes, and began a journey to a healthier me (30 lbs down, so far!).
I turned 40 and the world didn’t collapse. In fact, it was one of the best days of my entire life. Over 40 Random Acts of Kindness were performed on that day and since and the world became a bit brighter. It was 70 degrees in Indiana in December and I got to hang out on the front porch with my very best friends, my tribe, the island of misfit toys, and just BE.
This past year, I cried a lot, laughed a lot, started singing again and feeling more like myself than I have in a long time. There were a lot of struggles, and even more lessons, but I realized that I am one lucky lady to be alive and have the opportunity to wake up each day and try again.
Here’s to you on the last page of the final chapter of 2015.
