As we approach the end of 2011, most of us are reflecting upon the year we leave behind. For me, 2011 was filled with an abundance of change, quite a few lessons learned, and the entrance of some new and wondrous people in my life. For that I am grateful.
In the last few months of this year, I am learning to find contentment in my life. It is sometimes a challenge, but for now I am pleased with how things are ebbing and flowing. Life can change on a dime, just like the weather here in Portland, and we can't always be prepared for what comes our way. But with a positive outlook and faith that things will turn out the way they're supposed to, I continue to travel on my merry way.
Ups and downs. Bumps in the road. Obviously life is not always easy. But I look forward to 2012 with an optimism I haven't felt in a long time. There are new friendships to forge, new playwrighting opportunities to undertake and unexplored roads yet to travel. It should be an interesting year. But, aren't they all?
Happy New Year everyone. Peace, love, prosperity and health to us all in 2012!
