A New Yearby Sylvia Pedley on 01/01/18
Last year on this very blog I wrote some sweet drivel about how I wanted the year to play out. I wanted time spent with my sweetie and although I did get some time it did not pan out to all that I wanted. I put forth the idea that although I could not control the weather and the world outside my door I could destine what would happen inside my doors.
Wham. Destiny let me know that I had no control and showed me the error of my thinking by sending me and my family for an amusement park rollercoaster of a year with cars flying every which way the wind would take them as they careened off the track.
Things blew apart early and over the course of the year I had to draw deep from within myself to reserves I never knew existed just to find reason or rhyme to the happenings around me. I changed so many ways of thinking and believing about people, ideas and things that my head did a possessed type of spinning as I tried to keep it securely attached.
Now I am not complaining or whining, I am just stating the facts. My life and the lives of those close to me took a header. I am sorry for what I put all my family through even though I know I didn’t purposely throw everyone into the rinse cycle.
To the point, the past year has taught me many valuable lessons, one being if I have something to say, say it and dam the consequences.
So, to all my family, friends and acquaintances have a great 2018, say a final 'fuck you' to 2017 and live for your happiness and do what you want to do.
Love to you all.
