Today is my birthday and it has been a day of reflection on the past year. My 32nd year has probably been the hardest one for me yet both physically and emotionally. I have grown spiritually and emotionally and for that I am thankful. I feel much wiser, more cautious, and weathered as I enter my 33rd year of life. In a lot of ways I am more calm and even tempered now. I feel like I am just starting on a path of growth and change and I am looking forward to seeing where it takes me.
Thinking ahead to this next year is a little scary for me. I like being in control and having a plan. I realize now that I am not in control and plans are laughable and that knowledge is a scary place for me right now.
Another year in the books. And many parts of this year that I happily leave in the books but there are definitely some parts that I will never leave that I will carry with me forever. And for that I am also thankful.
