December’s Topic: “Looking Forward”….
Forward ~ December’s Blog-o-sphere Think Tank
To be honest, I had a nice light little post written here; all positive about looking forward in my own life. Rainbows, unicorns, shooting stars….. And last night I sat and re-wrote it.
2015 showed me forced me to experience the 1000 iterations of Jekyll & Hyde and a hundred other faces it throws out at you, when you [apparently] “need to be challenged”…..
2015 was HARD. And I mean hard and challenging: in every possible aspect. Personally. Health wise. Emotionally. It still has it’s talons dug in to me. It’s a hard beast to shake. One challenge: no problem, I can handle this. 5 challenges? Whatever. I am strong. Non-stop challenge? When the F*** will it stop? Seriously. That’s my year. It began late in 2014… and did not ever even for a second, let up.
Now, that’s not to say there hasn’t been some goodness and light as well. There has. And I am ever thankful for that.
So anyway; what am I looking forward to?
I look forward to the personal growth all the challenge brings. The strength it builds in every aspect of my life. The ability to appreciate the good moments, and cherish *ALL* moments- because I know that even in the challenging ones – I Am Still Alive. I am Here. I get the chance to keep going. To keep learning. To keep searching. To keep growing. To keep experiencing. To keep making the choice every single day to cherish it all, to live it, to be thankful for it.
I look forward to all the lessons I’ve gotten. Moving forward with an un-shatterable inner strength, and focusing on the *good* & beautiful aspects in my life, being thankful for the blessings I do have, and for the people in my life on whom I know I can count on, no matter what: family, and those I count as my family.
I look forward to bringing to fruition unending new creations that are the fire within me.
To finding the beauty in life. To going new places, and knowing new people….
