i wanted to be inspired to write all sorts of things about the new year and resolutions, etc. but tonight i want to focus a little bit on the past.
saying goodbye to things is never easy.
i'm pretty sure i've written that before.
it's just that the older i get the more real the term "forever" is.
i am terrible at good-byes. so terrible in fact that when at all possible, i avoid them.
however, some goodbye's just can't be avoided. there are things that you eventually have to let go of.
things that you cannot dwell on, or wish to change, no matter how deeply it pains you to do so. at the end of 2009, i honestly felt a slight breath of relief.
it was a reminder to move on. to hope for bigger and better things. but also a reminder to live life the way that you intended. in the words on someone i love deeply, "life is too short to be unhappy."
here's hoping that all your dreams come true in 2010... and an encouraging reminder that the best is yet to be.
