it’s officially the new year, and i wanted to wish you all a happy one.
the time has flown as usual, and yet this year, i think i’ve been anticipating 2014 more than normal. this year has stretched me thin, but i’ve come out of it a better person than before. [more on that here.] it’s hard to believe that at this time last year, my papa had not even been diagnosed with cancer, and a few short [but also very long] months later, he passed away. time is strange, and life is too. it can really scare you if you think too much about it.
some really wonderful things have happened as well, probably the most notable one being the purchase of my home. it is all mine, and it fills me with a joy that i have never known before. it is quiet on the inside and busy on the outside. it is happy and colorful and brimming with all things that are me. i love that it makes me feel that i know myself.
yes, i’m looking forward to this year. i have a good feeling about it.
cheers to health and happiness, to prosperity and good fortune. to faith, love, hope. and thank you to family and friends who make it all worthwhile.
bring it, 2014.
