I have to say…I’m kind of sad to see this year go. It was the year that I committed to following my heart. And boy did that little sucker let loose! I’m leaving 2015 with so many good memories to look back on…a few questionable decisions…and maybe one or two downright bad moves. As it turns out, my heart is not the most reliable of navigators. But it certainly means well!
And in the end, it’s all okay because I learned A LOT. Most importantly that sometimes you have to let your heart run free…and sometimes you have to rein it in. It’s important to strike a balance (and a pose, if you’re so inclined).
So, as much as I don’t want to let go of 2015, let go I must. Time to look ahead to the new year! I picked “relentless” as my word of the year for 2016.
As my friend Katie says, that’s a pretty aggressive word. To which my response is, “Then it’s perfect.” 2016 is not going to be a wishy-washy, go-with-the-flow kind of year for me. It’s going to be a year of relentlessly pursuing my goals. A year of unleashing my inner beast. This year, if I want it, I’m going to take it.
I have a feeling that, at this time next year, I’m going to be one tired lioness. But, I also have a feeling that I’ll be a pretty satisfied one too.
And so lovers, as always, from the bottom of my imperfect heart, I wish you all a new year full of everything you wish for yourselves. Whether you’re taking it easy, doing some soul searching, leaf turning or howling at the moon, I hope you create the year that you’re dreaming of.
Until next time, Lilibeaners…
