The end of the year is quickly coming and so many thoughts still make their way through my head and heart, swirling back and forth, looking for a final place of rest. A new year will be soon begin, bringing about life in old and new ways.
This holiday season was more sobering than I expected, especially in relation to the loss of my father just a few months ago and how much it still really affects my daily life. Whether the feelings are above or below the surface, I'm still coming to terms with the death that touched my life in such a tragic way not long ago.
In other thoughts, I shared with my dear friend P yesterday how lately I've been reminded that life is just too fragile to walk through each day with a careless, taking things for granted, attitude. Tomorrow is never promised to any of us, yet we tend to walk around as if it is. I personally want to change that mentality and plan to do so starting with myself.
I sense new changes coming this year for me personally and I'm going to welcome them with open arms, fully aware that I have every opportunity to embrace them, love them and walk through them to the fullest extent or simply let them pass me by for fear of what tomorrow may or many not hold.
