Time: Glancing Back and Looking Ahead

Time.....it's quite an overwhelming concept if you think about it.

As the year draws to a close, I wish to take a moment and reflect on all that 2014 brought me and envision all that 2015 has to offer.

Glancing back.........

The biggest life change of 2014 was the decision to leave my teaching position. While that was an incredibly rewarding job, the decision to leave was the best choice of the year.  It was just.....time.

I lost a dear high school friend. An unexpected loss that made me realize first-hand how fragile life and time truly are.  No one is guaranteed tomorrow. And, if we will only realize that, perhaps we would live today differently.

The second half of 2014 found me as a stay-at-home mom to my two tween-aged sons.  This was the biggest highlight of the year and time I will always cherish. 

Over the year, I also traveled to some amazing places: Barbados, Aruba, Montreal, Barcelona, Lisbon, Jamaica, Costa Rica, and Southern California.  I created memories and had experiences that will surpass the test of time.

I bit the bullet and started blogging.  I didn't really have any specific goals for the blog or a specific direction, but here I am.  I am enjoying watching it morph into whatever it is meant to be over time.  I have been blown away by those who have supported me in this endeavor and for all the readers that stop by and continue to return.  Thank you!

Looking ahead.........

I don't really know what 2015 has in store for me.  Will I go back to work? That remains to be seen given some time.

I hope more travel is in my future for 2015.  It seems to be! And, at the moment, it looks like I will have the time to do so.

I will continue to blog for as long as it is rewarding. I am curious where this journey will take through time.

And, as I sit back and look at my oldest cat, Hunter, now over 17 years of age and with ailing health, I can't help but wonder if 2015 will be his last bit of time here with me.

However, I have so much to be grateful for. And, so much to look forward to! I'm sure 2015 will bring some downs along with what I hope to be many ups. We can attempt to look down the path before us and see what lies ahead, but our attempts will be futile. 

Only time will tell........  

May you have a happy, healthy, and memorable New Year!
