Happy New Year and welcome, 2015!
Self-reflection, particularly of the public kind, is a bit uncomfortable but I’ll try my best here. To me, 2015 isn’t so much a year of change but rather a continuation of the growth and evolution that began in 2013. I started a new job, this blog, took up running and climbing, learned a few new dishes to cook, got to know some of my family better, made new friends, gained new responsibilities. I foresee that 2015 will be much of the same, but I want to pledge to deepen my involvement in my hobbies and pursuits, and to continue this openness and exploration of my passions.
It feels nice to hear from you and to read what you all are thinking. I enjoy being able to relate to the people who read my blog and to those whose words I read–even if we’re not all at the same place, life-wise, it’s comforting to know I’m not the only person living through a certain experience. Thank you for being here and for engaging with me via emails, social media, and the like.
I welcome 2015 with hope, contentment, and excitement for what it might teach me.
