Somehow I feel sad that 2011 is over. How can I not? This year was awesome and exciting for me. So seeing its inevitable end is a bit hard to grasp and take in. But truly, when you come right down to it, I can’t help but be very glad and appreciative. 2011 was such a wonder, which I will only look back with so much delight and gratitude.
Leaving your comfort zone is never easy. Taking risks is scary. It takes a lot of strength of character to actually go through with it. And even after you’ve done it, the temptation to doubt and backpedal is strong and pervasive. Trust me on that. To be completely honest, I still am scared of the uncertainty, of the pressure not to fail, of the thought that I would not be able to stand by the choice I made. But I am optimistic. I am open. I am a believer. Because 2011 reinforced my faith in faith.
Wishes do come true – even for the impatient, even for the lonely, even for the abandoned. Just when you’re ready to give up, something comes along that pulls you right out of the fear and skepticism you are wallowing in. Some things do take time, but they will come your way when you’re ready to receive them. I know, that probably will not make sense right away, and that’s fine. Because what rulebook says that you must understand everything all at once? Trying to do so is just setting yourself up for disappointment.
This year, I took a shot at flying and being free. While admittedly I am still in limbo, from my view up here, all I see in the horizon are possibilities without restrictions and opportunities for redemption. That is one breathtaking sight, if you ask me. I see my situation now as a chance to grow, be inspired again, and work even harder and happier. With all those at stake, this is a game you lose by choosing not to play. That, I believe, is a misstep no one should ever have to make. And for as long as I have people who are rooting for me, just waiting until I find my spot, I consider myself safe and blessed. Despite the free fall, I know I will land on my feet. 😉
Thank you very, very much, 2011. Next year is going to be tremendous. I just know it. Soar. Conquer. Thrive. Lezzdothis, lezzgo!
Have a JOLLY 2012, everyone! 😀
