I think I've written this piece 4 times. It's one of those ones where I don't want to come off as 'life is fantabulous!' and then I also would hate to sound depressing and dreary. Balance. That's what I think life is all about finding.
2015 was a tough year for me. Personally challenging. I usually embrace the start of a new year with some goals, sharing a few expectations and hopes that I would like to accomplish. However this time there is nothing more terrifying than saying 2016 will be a great year, so much better than the last. Because in all reality, let's face it, it may not be. Sometimes the greatest accomplishment we can have is survival. And so I am determined to just take 2016 one day at a time. I do not wish for grand expectations to be checked off a list, no bucket list items. Just balance. Instead of sharing a list for the new year, I am sharing the quote above. You know how sometimes you read a quote or a line from a book, hear a famous phrase, and it just kind of speaks to you? I found this quote a few weeks ago and stuck it in a corner of my computer desktop ever since. I keep coming back to it and it's just right.
Going to look for some stars. Join me.
