Thank you for another wonderful year of readership, friendship, community, support, and affection.
This wonderful life of ours has been a beautiful roller coaster of lessons in family, marriage, courage, and the pursuit of individual passions.
2015 promises to throw a lot more of those things our way, and in the mix, we will continue to explore the world, our neighborhood, and ourselves.
Long before I blogged and was awarded so much, I lost a lot. What those losses taught me was that life is too short and every new day we wake up to experience is an opportunity to be better, get better, do better, and pursue better.
Every day is a chance to pursue our joy and share it with others. As long as we don’t lose hope in the possibilities that lay before us those chances can seem endless. Who we are today is not who we will always be, especially if who we are isn’t what makes us happy. Take it from me. I sometimes feel I have lived three different lives!
I am grateful for any day I am given in this new coming year where I get the chance to be the best that I can be in all aspects of my life so that hopefully when I am gone whatever mark I leave, however small, only serves to inspire and make someone smile. I may not always succeed, but man, am I trying.
And that is all we can hope for, my dear friends, and why I love sharing my stories with you. May next year have countless days where we live, love, and laugh to the fullest.
Thank you for taking the time to read, share, and comment.
I hope that I inspire you as often and as much as you inspire me.
