Another year has come and gone and I’ve only just started one of my goals from last year… Picking up writing again. Better late than never, is the saying and I agree with those thoughts.
Writing has always been my emotional outlet and I’ve missed it the two years I’ve given it up. I have learned several valuable lessons from past events including keeping my identity to not sharing with colleagues and co-workers to tempering my words (being emotionally smart). I’m in a much different place now, a good place. I’ve recovered from the trauma of previous employers and have less emotional baggage to carry around.
This past year has been an ok year for me, equal measures good and bad. Keeping up with friends has indicated that some have gone back to God, some have gotten lost and picked up old bad habits and managed to right themselves again and then some have done quite well.
I’ve found that I long for simpler days. I miss the times when responsibility was tempered with good fun and joy. It seems that those days are long gone. As I get older, I find the weight of responsibility gets heavier, not something I considered when I was 18, or even when I graduated university at 26. I am paying off debts this year… Student loan, credit card and home improvement, but taking on some more in the form of a new luxury car, which makes my life pretty well balanced.
When it’s all said and done, I hope that you and yours are having a good ending to the year of 2014 filled with friends and family. I send my blessings filled with the wish of the joy of friends and family not just for the end of this year, but through into 2015. But mostly, I hope that you continue your journey of life thru 2015 and beyond and that I am able to enjoy it with you in some small way.
