This morning I read in another blog: "January always comes after December."
I realize it's a rather obvious statement and yet I find it comforting. So much so I may adopt it as my mantra for 2015. In essence: tomorrow always comes.
And it does. I very firmly and affirmatively declared 2014 "The Year of Positive Change." I felt it was time. I knew it in my bones and I am proud that it was indeed a year of positive changes. A new position at a new company in a new industry, new car, new apartment... It's all resulted in a new outlook. It's made me more independent and more content. It made me comfortable arriving to the party late and leaving early. It made me look for silver linings. I mourned turning 35 but quickly realized I was experience a renaissance year and threw a party instead.
Did I accomplish every goal on my list? No. But that never stops me nor deters me.
Bring it, 2015. I'm ready for whatever you may bring. Because January always comes after December! :)
Update - 10:32 PM
You know, I just felt I had to mention.... I'm home this evening with a persistent and tortuous case of laryngitis, and thank god for social media. If I had to spend this night - this fourth day of not being able to speak - truly alone, I'd be an absolutely insane person. I have had kind friends checking in on me via text and my WiFi enabled TV for entertainment.... So I'm only a slightly insane person.
2015, please bring my voice with you.
