Happy New Year 2015!

This New Year’s Eve, Alan, the girls and I came up with a list of our favorite memories from the year.  We ate chili with macaroni and cheese and had apple pie with spray-can whipped cream for dessert. Then we made videos of each of us being interviewed and watched a movie and stayed up till midnight.

We had various options for how to spend New Year’s Eve, and in the end, we all agreed that what we wanted most of all was to stay home and just be together, so that is what we did.

To me, this has been a deep and meaningful year.  It’s been a year of transformation and growth, in which I feel like I have entered a new chapter and version of myself that has been dormant for a long time.  My anxiety has decreased significantly, I have more confidence, and I have a clearer focus about my purpose and what I want from my life.  My health has improved significantly since my episode in October, and I feel better than I have in a very long time. And with all of this, I have started to find more enjoyment in everyday things and the ability to be in the present moment a little more than I used to.  I am grateful.
