I feel like I “should” write a long-winded end-of-year post… but I’m not feeling it. This year has been magnificent, tragic, spectacular and trying… all in equal measures. I definitely will not forget what I have learned, and will take advantage of the opportunities the end of the year is offering me.
I am looking forward to 2014, I hope it embraces the great parts of 2013 and leaves behind the sad parts.
As this song says, I am slowly learning to truly “let it go”:
It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all
It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand
And here I’ll stay
in the light of day
The cold never bothered me anyway.
Someday, I don’t think the metaphorical cold (of life, of expectations, of chance and circumstance) will bother me. I hope that day comes soon. It should.
