My, it’s been an interesting year so far and here we are in March. In like a lion! Out like a lamb, we hope.
I’d been all prepared for an extra(ordinary) new year, emphasis on finding the joy in daily living, but wow, did some big stuff come our way instead. The attacks in Paris in early January had us reeling for long after and the conversations continue.
Personal stresses soon confronted me, too: a friend with a mental health crisis, my mom who needed surgery, my job which started exerting extreme pressure.
Hold up, 2015! Let me catch my breath!By mid-February, I was already done with it. I grabbed hold of Chinese New Year, February 19, and said, okay, second chance to start over. The Year of the Goat will be better!
And it’s happened! I am so thankful to say everything is much smoother on all fronts. Loved ones are healthy and safe. Paris is resilient as ever. Exciting, creative developments are brewing…including another book giveaway for you soon!
I just wanted to touch base as I dropped off the radar for a little while, but don’t doubt: I am always thinking of you.
How is your year going so far? Do you believe in second chances?
