Seasons of life
Some would probably say that this year I’m getting “old,” while there are still many others who would comment on how “young” I am. These terms are all relative as this past year and a half my age did not indicate how old my body felt. This “winter” of my life, as I’m choosing to define it, blossomed this past fall as I fought through what had kept me dormant and rendered me capable of a fraction of the life I should have been living. There are things in our life that we can do to control the seasons, decisions we can make, choices that can lead us into various storms; but sometimes those storms just come. My health was the storm that held me down for so long and having left that dreadful apartment a year ago Feb 1st, I have seen my health slowly return. (**anyone reading this have health issues that can not seem to find diagnosis with an MD, message me as I have learned a lot in the last year that might be helpful to you!)
But that was a different season.
Even though I woke today to a blanket of freshly fallen snow, January 1st, 2013 is the beginning of the summer of my life.
I think there is an unnecessary pressure when a list of “New Year’s Resolutions” are made and (at least for me) they often aren’t completed because time is not put into executing it. So instead, I plan to put my renewed energy into the things I am passionate about and one day at a time this year I will work to see them come back to life!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
