Damn another year has passed. It seems like yesterday, that sunkissed, stormy holiday.
How change has been wrought by a year.
I finally achieved something I have worked towards for so long. And found it wasn’t the end.
I looked across a table at someone I thought I wanted for years, and realized I didn’t.
I had a moment of utter calm and happiness on a boat in the Pacific Ocean.
I spent a month in despair and will more in my fight to move on from the past.
Became the citizen of two countries (and just remembered that I haven’t finished the whole process).
Did a crash course in patience.
Realized that some friendships, however brief are meant to last. Some however long aren’t.
Broke my previous road trip record of a 1,000 miles in a weekend.
Almost followed my genes a couple of times, but came back every time.
Still didn’t figure out what I want to do in life.
Though the most important thing I realized this year is that there really is no light at the end of the tunnel. But that the tunnel itself is not dark.
Merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year to all!
