At the end of one year and the start of the next. It always seems appropriate to reflect a little on the past years trials and tribulations but also to reflect on the learnings, lessons and joys that occurred.
There were some disappointments and frustrations this year, along with some sadness. But mostly it went by in a blur of commitments, appointments and obligations. I realize now that the goals I set for myself around my art, photography and writing seemed to have been quite unachievable this year. I could dwell on all this, I guess, or I can just carry on and keep moving forward albeit more slowly toward my goals.
It’s just like when the running gets hard, you have to just keep moving forward until its easier to carry on than turn back. Sometimes that’s all you can do.
So my dear friends, don’t be too hard on yourself if you, too, didn’t quite achieve what you hoped this year. We are all on our own journey and for some of us, we seem to take the long winding road…let’s hope it makes all the difference. Happy New Year to you.
