It’s time to say goodbye to 2010 and Welcome 2011

As the hours are beginning to wind down and a new year is about to begin, I cannot help but sit down with a cup of coffee and think about everything that has taken place over the course of the past twelve months.

This year has been filled with good times and bad. Far too many changes have chiseled their way through the precious timeline and made some of those days unbearable. But at the same time there is so much happiness that has come from this year that cannot go unaccounted for.

Moments where you feel you have lost everything, your family, your friends, your loved ones and have no idea how to pull yourself through the mess. And then there is a light at the end of the tunnel and you realize that there is a new day ahead where you can make a change, reinforce some positive action and implement an initiative in reclaiming what was once lost.

Miles have separated us but communication keeps us bound and if it weren’t for tender moments I honestly do not know where I would be this morning.

In a move to clear my mind, it turned out that it was truly a soul that needed nourishment. It needed time to heal itself and find strength. To build the inner empowerment that can only make us a better daughter, sister, lover, etc. A better human being.

I am thankful for this year and all of the opportunities (and lack thereof) for it was not only a learning experience but a time for personal growth.

Over the months within the year, there have been times of doubt and feeling unsure about who the woman I was and where that woman was heading into.

This morning, though it’s not earth shattering it is getting clearer on who I am becoming as an individual.

As a woman.

As someone who is equally as worthy of anything out there that brings joy and happiness.

Looking at life through a glass is never what we expect.

Things we may have wished for and fought for may seem distorted once we grab hold of them. The toughest acceptance is that we can get everything we ask for in the time we ask for it with a little twist.

The year that is coming into view is the start of a new day. A new time. It’s time to let go of everything that took place over the course of 2010 and see what exciting things are in store for the next year to come.

Anyways, out with the old. In with the New.

It’s NYE, everyone enjoy yourselves for a safe and fun night filled with festivities and celebrations!

Happy New Year!!!!
