2013. What can I say? This year was amazing, in more ways than one. I took a chance on a new job, which I loved and then was promoted to my dream job. I gained a new nephew this year (he’s adorable by the way) and my family and friends are healthy. Wimbly is still my sidekick and rocking it out at the ripe old age of nine, and yes, he still acts like he’s only two. ( I feel like we probably have a long time together.)
The best part though? The best part is that for the first time in my adult life, I feel like me. I know who I am and I am completely comfortable it. You know, sometimes our lives take these paths that you think that will get better, and it never really does. And it’s so hard and it wears you down. You can’t figure out who you really are supposed to be because you are always worried about someone/something else.
So I stopped. I stopped it all and got rid of the negative and let me tell you, that made a HUGE difference. I love my life and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. I like only worrying about me – it’s very liberating and I feel like I can breathe. (And at times, I am breathing a sigh of relief.)
The most important part? I am so unbelievably happy.
Thank you, 2013. You are the best.
2014, I am looking forward to meeting you.
