Life is messy.
Full of emotions, desire, wants and needs.
It is gratuitous, beautiful, frightening and compelling.
Days pass, moments happen, love disappears, tears fall, passion kindles and laughter bubbles.
And through it all we remain ever hopeful.
Hopeful that we’ll meet our true love, feel passion, know are souls purpose, bring joy to others, make ends meet, continue to grow, retain good health, foster our faith and spirituality, and be understood …
Sometimes, it’s difficult to see through the thick haze of disappointment that envelops us. But we must try. For beyond the haze is an enormous, sparkling, never-ending well of possibility.
It’s strange how we tend to analyze our lives more at certain times of the year. Most specifically at the end of each year. It’s when we tally up the good, the bad and the ugly. Giving ourselves a score, so to speak. Did we achieve our goals? Was love found or lost? Did we grow older or simply old?
It’s the time of year when we take stock, make resolutions and invest in ourselves.
It’s newness enveloped in possibility.
So, as you look behind, make sure not too linger. Keep moving forward and let your heart be grateful and light.
Happy (early) New Year!
