Many times that self reflection can leave people wondering where the years have gone and just what exactly they have done with their lives. I am happy to be able to say that I feel like I have used my time well and am just exactly where I am meant to be. Sure, it wasn't always easy and there definitely were times that I stopped to wonder about the path I was being led down. I think that is part of growing. Every decision made leaves a mark on your life and I am very much at peace with the life I am living and the person I have become over the years. Every day is such a precious gift and I am beyond blessed with the life I have been given. Reminded of this by the breakfast in bed I was served today by little hands and big smiles.
While I feel like I am in a very good place with who I am and the goals and plans for my future I still feel like there is so much out there waiting to be discovered. I do suspect that I will likely always feel this way. The world is just bursting with new things to experience and enjoy. This is something that I hope to pass on to my own children through my example. One should never stop learning, living, and enjoying life. Here's to a year of new experiences!
