There have been alot of years ( A LOT) that I have ended the year with a very heartfelt “fuck you” to the months past. This is not one of them.
There’s the good versus the not-so-good scales being reviewed this morning in my head and my heart.
To be honest, 2014 was not a great year in many ways.
As far as personal relationships with others went, it was a year of ups and downs of pretty torrential hell at times. Sure, there were also times that I felt such tremendous love and connection that I smiled inside but it was filled with pain and hurt and pretty much wanting to swear off ever being involved with anyone again.
It as a year though, that I made huge gains in my personal relationship with my Self and that is a good balance to keep in mind.
But, looking back, it was also a year that held many highs rather than lows. Sometimes I have a hard time seeing the good but this isn’t one of those times.
2014 was the year that I set some significant physical goals for myself… and achieved them.
It was a year that in which I did things I didn’t think I could, and I’m owning the pride that I deserve to feel for that.
It was a year that I accomplished some things that people said I couldn’t.
It was a year that brought times of absolute joy in my life and for that I’m grateful.
It was a year of experiencing things that made my spirit soar and my heart feel open again.
It was a year of new experiences and new connections to see grow and flourish in the next.
It was a year that held a lot of good.
It was a year that helped me believe that more like that , and better even, are possible.
So goodbye 2014, you haven’t been all bad and for that I’m thankful.
