Looks like it’s New Year’s Day. Excellent. I survived 2013, with all of its twists and turns. I changed jobs and cities, changed my body, changed my mind. I got my heart broken a bit, but I came back strong and am settling in and for the first time, I am embracing being single.
This was my first NYE spent single that I haven’t lamented over being alone romantically. It was fantastic. There were friends and laughs and a dive bar and burgers. There was a ridiculous outfit and my really big hair. There was almost missing the stroke of midnight because we were too busy enjoying our burgers while walking down the street. In a nutshell, it was the best way to end 2013.
Usually I reflect more, but I did a lot of reflecting as the year progressed; that’s apparent on this blog. A lot of things happened in 2013 that will affect 2014. This will hopefully be the year that I continue my forward momentum, taking to heart Emerson’s idea that life is an experiment. The new year is a good time to recommit to that growth, and I am excited for this year in ways I haven’t been before.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a bunch of unhealthy food to deal with before reigning my training (ha, that rhymes!) in this month.
