For some strange reason, I can't wrap my mind around the fact that there's only a week left of 2013. Time, in my world, has never flown by faster, ever. But I'm not complaining. This past year hasn't been one of my favourites; marred by constant challenges and being tested on just about every level imaginable; I'm certainly not sad to see it end.
I still can't help but feel a little pensive about things... lost in the endless contemplation of how this year began, where I've been, what I've had to endure, what I actually want to do with my life, and not being exactly sure of where I'm going to. But the thing about taking a long hard look at life, is that it often prompts some much needed change, however small or drastic.
And so I'm going into 2014 with no expectations. I'm not desperately hoping that it will be better than the previous year (history has taught me that that is an exercise in futility), and I'm not expecting it to be different. I'm merely going to be open to new things, shirk off the weight of anticipation, and take each day as it comes. I'd also like to live a healthier life, in every sense of the word.
Let's see where the wind takes us, shall we...
Here's wishing a Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating, and Happy Holidays to all my readers. May the next year bring unfounded joy, peace and prosperity to all.
