Well 2015 turned out to be a really difficult year. I wasn’t able to accomplish my main goal for 2015. Which was to move. I really hate it here and I’ve become really unproductive because of it.

And  just a few days ago I found out that a really good friend, who I had not been in touch with in years, died. That really hurt. It still hurts.

But, if something good can come out of something bad then hopefully this pain will lead me to get back in touch with quite a few people I’ve become estranged from.

Time goes by and you assume you will see or talk to people you care about but, as they say, there are no guarantees in life. Effort must be made to maintain relationships.

So, I hope that 2016 will bring me the strength to re-build relationships as well as build new ones. Because when it’s all said and done the only thing that will really matter is who you loved and who loved you.

That’s my lesson from 2015.

I hope that where ever you are you are loved and that 2016 will bring even more love to you. That’s what I hope.

Happy New Year!

  1. I’m sorry about your friend, Val. I can SO relate to what you wrote. You’ve inspired me to be a better friend in the new year. Wishing you a wonderful 2016, and hope you make that move soon! 🙂

  2. Happy 2016! I hope you get the opportunity and chance to start a phase to a new home and location. I’m ready for a move too, but kind of afraid to go on my own. It’s easy to get comfortable somewhere.
    I missed you! Glad to read from you.
    Happy New Year!
