Goodbye, 2015. You were full of challenges and surprises for me.
This year held terrible losses, along with moments of pure peace and beauty. 2015 was full of disappointments, moments of proud achievement, and plenty of opportunities to Let. Shit. Go.
2015 saw necessary goodbyes, and surprising hellos. It brought big changes, and also a return to me, with resolution and oh-so-many compromises along the way. It held plenty of anxiety, and, finally, a renewed sense of peace. Perhaps most importantly, 2015 saw the return of the sound of my own genuine, joyous laughter. I hadn’t even realized it had been missing until I found my way back to it.
This was a year full of bravery. And sorrow. And, in its own time, joy. So…so long, 2015, (and thanks for all the fish!)
Welcome, 2016. May you be full of bravery and joy.
