I’d like to say that this was the year that All the Great happened. Or that this is the year that All the Horrid came about. But it wasn’t either.
There have been ups and there have been downs. Changes have come whether we wished them or not. Sometimes boredom set in and provided a reprise.
That’s life though isn’t it? No matter what year, month, week or day it is. Life is full of so many possibilities that we never know what to expect when we get up in the morning. It’s a bundled up surprise of who knows what.
I try to focus on the many laughs I’ve shared with friends. Or the moments spent with my family. And the loving smile I see on Matt’s face when he looks at me.
Those are treasured memories from this year and of many years past.
Dwelling on anything else has been a waste of time and energy on my part. It’s exhausting and never really worth it.
I have to learn to let go more. Live more in the here and now. Simplify instead of complicate. Solve and move past entanglements.
Because life is ever more precious and shorter with each passing day.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
