I’m very excited that we made it to 2014! Happy New Year! The possibilities of what this year may bring and what I look forward to doing is all very encouraging. I haven’t made any resolutions but, I am making a conscious effort to seek the joy out of life. I have to go in a new direction. I have to be ready for change and open to new things. I want to remember Aris and smile. I want to cry less. I want to feel her spirit and quiet strength. I want to focus on the love versus the pain. I want to be better at being the new me, with Aris’ spirit echoing inside me. I want to make her proud of me and this road less taken that my journey encompasses. I’m definitely looking for laughter and refuse to take myself so serious. A new year brings anticipation of what will happen. I’ve decided to make things happen! Happy New Year!
