Wow, what a year. Mine started rocky. I was unsure, broken and miserable for a while but in retrospect this was the best year I can recall. Breaking with the past opened up the future to me and when I let go of it all, the living present was better than the past. Perspective is really everything. You can opt to stay broken, alone or sad or you can take all the bad stuff, sift it, take the lessons and move on, empowered with knowledge and the wisdom that only experience brings.
So many plans for 2015. I’m beyond stoked. It feels so good to be alive to embrace what’s coming. I encourage you to let go of the hurts and pains and disappointments of 2014 and embrace all the goodness that will await you in 2015.
I want to wish you the very best. You deserve it and I pray that your 2015 will outshine 2014. Have a happy new year.
