Happy New Year’s Eve


We made it to the end of 2017!  With the ringing of the end of the year and ushering in the new year, I feel reborn!  This morning as I sat quietly sipping my coffee, I felt the urge of gratitude for everything I learned in 2017 and as you’ve been reading my blog, it was a lot.  I want to thank you all for walking this journey with me.  You truly helped in so many ways that I can never thank you all enough for being so kind, so supportive and for sharing your stories with me as well.

You made a difference in my life!  A positive one!  Thank you!

I feel at peace today.  A depth of peace in my soul that I haven’t felt for a long time.  It’s like when you exhale that big deep breath and let it all out.  I am releasing the past and embracing the present and future full of possibility!  I realized that I am now my own boss, that there’s nobody left with power over me, but me, and it feels really good.  I don’t have to answer to my ex or my ex-laws anymore.  I only have my kids and myself to love, protect and to comfort and that’s fine with me.  It’s a freeing feeling to release the gunk of the past in my life.  I’m starting fresh today with sweeping out the old sadness and embracing hope and love in my life.

I don’t make resolutions for the new year.  I never stuck with them anyway so I don’t even make the effort now.  But I do like to put out hopes and dreams for the new year which I’m mulling over so that I can bring clarity to what I want in 2018.

I hope you take a little time today or tomorrow to do the same!
