...it's finally here, the beginning of a New Year. Not being one to look too far forward or too far back I must admit that I am glad to see 2013 come to an end. Many wonderful memories and experiences have graced our lives; our daughter's first child (a grandson), celebrating birthdays of our children, grandchildren and loved ones, our long awaited
Thus I come to my new word for the year.
Last year's 'nourish' did serve me quite well. I was often reminded to nourish my body during my long recovery, and worked diligently to nourish my soul, to cherish each and every relationship I have and nourish those friendships that have sadly slipped away. I took on the challenge of renewing my relationship with my sister but after ten years I am afraid it is lost. I truly believe I have done everything in my power to invite her back into my life and thought maybe that would happen when I was so ill in the hospital but once again she walked out of my life without a single word as to why. So I am giving her what she seems to want...peace. The door is and always will be open for her if she decides to return but I must move forward now, this has taken far too much from me.
And that new word for 2014.
to face my fears and step out of my comfort zone.
to keep my promises no matter the difficulty.
to get my life back to 'normal' after such a difficult summer.
to get caught up on all the things I let go during my recovery.
to get back in the car and drive again.
to eat right, exercise...take that first step.
to care for my husband.
No resolutions here, I gave up on those long ago. Life is not about depriving yourself of something, within limits, but it is a journey of discovery, of learning, of becoming.
What are your wishes for the New Year?
be well friends, be safe, be blessed.
there are great things waiting on the other side of fear.
