The New Year

The new year is coming, the new year is coming!! To say I am excited to put 2010 behind me is an understatement. I am not a big fan of 2010. It just held way too much sadness.
I wont start there though. I will start with saying that 2010 had some goodness too. I think that the biggest good thing that happened this year was my finding my perfect, awesome, fantastic, excellent, wonderful, PERFECT job teaching the most adorable preschoolers on the planet alongside a longtime best friend. Another good from this year is that I also discovered that no matter how many years are between you, how many mishaps and ups and downs between you, if a friendship is true and genuine, it will come together without any hassle, it will pick right up where it left off, it will be stronger than ever, and it will all happen at the PERFECT moment in time. Funny how that works.
Now, to the flip side, the badness. I wont rehash the bad of the year. Although, it would show how lopsided 2010 was in regards to good vs. bad, happy vs. sad. lol I wont be snarky though. I will just say this. I learned from each sad event and I know that each sad event had a purpose in the grand scheme of things. I am constantly learning and growing as a person. This year, though, I can definitely say I changed. My whole outlook on life was rocked to the core. So, now Im starting anew and feeling my way through all of this. Some things changed along with my changing that I didnt expect to change, but its ok. I have faith that those things will work themselves out in time. Until then, every day is lived moment to moment.
My greatest hope for 2011 is that everything evens out. I know its too much to expect that we have no sadness in 2011, so Im willing to compromise and just ask that the good and the bad at least even out this year. I hope that everyone learns from the events of 2010 and applies what they learned to the events to come in 2011. Lets make this a truly HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Out with the old, in with the new...
