2015: the year of season


Last year on this date, I claimed that 2014 had been the year of the twins. It was the first full year I spent knowing and loving my sweet Lucy and Layla.

I’ve been thinking of what I could look back and claim for 2015. The first quarter of 2015 was hopeful, and then the next quarter was full of hurt, then a bit handicapped, and finally these last few months have been full of healing.

It’s been a rollercoaster, to say the least.

I was catching up with Gregory about this past year, and I told him a truth I’ve recently come to truly accept. Even though this year has been hard, I wouldn’t trade a single moment of it. I have no regrets, no “what if’s,” no desire for do-overs. My friend Beckie once shared the phrase “hard earned wisdom” with me, and that’s what I’ve taken from season to season this year. Freaking hard earned wisdom.

Thanks to all of you that have stuck with me this year through the highs and the lows – who have encouraged me to declutter (I’ll get back on that asap lol), to stay diligent with my debt repayment, and who have cheered me on. Here’s to another year.

and for those of you doing Whole 30 starting tomorrow… enjoy your last cookie! ;D
