In probably every New Year’s Eve before, I could not wait for the year to end. I could not wait to leave all of my scattered pieces behind in hopes of creating a new and improved [insert here every excuse I blamed my unhappiness on]. But this year has been a year of firsts in many ways. For starters, this is the first year I do not want to end. I absolutely loved 2013. It has been a year of priceless lessons, experiences and people.
This year has been filled with love and letting go, facing fears and breaking free. It has been frightening, thrilling, overwhelming, exciting and empowering. Filled with putting myself out there and standing securely, whichever way it all rolls. On the business front, I have seen my first sales, my first home party, my first craft fair, and even my first not-so-nice competitor. Each and every moment has been its own invaluable lesson.
Most importantly, this year has been filled with abundant success. Not with tangible, monetary items most contribute to success. But with things money cannot buy – the strongest renewal of faith, hope and belief in myself, all thanks to the most supportive friendships, family and community. My blessings are immeasurable because they are in my life.
Now that I think about it, I am really excited for 2014.
2013 was just the springboard for the best yet to come. I believe even greater moments are in store for 2014. I am ready.
On we go.
