...at the end of another year. 2015 just zipped right by. The years keep rolling along and time seems to be picking up speed as I get older.
It feels like only yesterday that I was 15 (in 1980) and thinking about how incredible it was that I'd be around to witness a new millennium roll in, possibly with children in tow since I'd only be in my mid thirties by then. Well, it did happen that way. I did celebrate the year 2000 as a mother of two young children. But as a single mother. And totally unaware at the time that two years later I'd be crossing paths with the most amazing man in the world and we'd begin our wonderful journey together.
Each year brings along surprises; sometimes they are good, sometimes they are not so good. But they all challenge and help us grow. As individuals. As fellow human beings. Our experiences instill wisdom in us that we take along into the next year. And hopefully we are better people because of it.
As I say goodbye to 2015, I feel at peace. It's been a good year. I am grateful for having been given another 365 days on this beautiful planet with the people I love. And although I don't make resolutions, I do promise, like I do every year, to respect the world I live in, to be compassionate and kind to all living beings, to continue to approach life with enthusiasm and gratitude, and to celebrate every moment of this incredible thing called life.
And last but certainly not least, I am so grateful for all of you and your continued support. Year after year.
I wish you all joy and peace and good health for 2016. And I look forward to the many more adventures we'll share together in the next twelve months.
Happy New Year!
