As my friends know, 2015 was a very difficult year for me – separation, family illnesses, my depression, empty nest, culminating in being let go from my part time job two days after Christmas due to lack of available hours. Huge sigh.

Yet I am still positive and I am setting scary, big goals and dreams for 2016. I am saying “fuck the fear” I am putting myself out there to the ‘verse and saying “this is me, love me or not I will be happy within myself”.

The end of the year is a time for reflection, to check in with yourself. To see what went adrift, what were your successes, failures, changes. I am trying to look at my year as a growing phase, accepting everything that happened (good and bad) as necessary for me to get where I am today – happier and more in tune with myself – and using it as a springboard to an amazing 2016 and beyond.

Today I ponder, tomorrow I will be looking ahead, seeing what greatness I can achieve in the coming year.

So goodbye 2015, and welcome 2016.
