Today the sun shined more brightly than usual and my heart followed suit.
I thought about this time last year and all that has happened since. It’s been a beautiful journey – not without worry and stress, but the process of getting from there to here has been a lovely trip through some gorgeous scenery, just like a long run.
I am looking forward to the future in a way I never have before. While I try to stay cheerful, I’m not so much of an optimist regarding my own life, usually. But something has changed deep inside of me, and I find living so much more exciting than simply surviving.
It’s been a great year. I can’t even imagine what’s in store for the next one, but I’m ready to find out.
