Don’t wait for New Year’s…

If I have learned anything in the past year it is that one need not wait for New Year’s to resolve to make one’s life better. Start now.

The past year has been one HEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLL of a roller coaster, the toughest year of my life by far. It started off really well, but by June I was in shambles. The rest of the year I slowly got back on my feet, while the end of December had one more shock in store as I mourned the passing of my Grandpa Hamm, a loss which leaves more questions than answers.

But as the old cliches go, the more you struggle through, the more you learn and the more you grow.

A couple of weeks ago a friend made an acute observation of my experience of the past year. They remarked how incredible it is that we search for what it is we want everywhere but right in front of us.

I finally feel settled and in control of things again. I finally feel content and happy with what my life is and where it is. There’s still a lot I am not so happy with, but the major pieces of my life are finally together; it’s only the spaces in between that I now need to fill in.

I wish all of you the best for the New Year. We are so blessed to live where we do, and let us not forget that.
