A lot can happen in a year, and in this past year it certainly did.
Some of it good, some of it not so much. But then there was the rest of it that was great.
I found my people, the ones I considered as the hand-picked family that I know will be family for many years to come.
I found a place that, in some ways, really did come to feel like home.
But most importantly, I found new things about myself.
I found that I am capable of making good things happen, of making it through tough times that might have broken others, that might have broken a younger, other me.
I found a stronger faith, a clearer purpose, a new path.
Moving, however hard at times was the best thing I could have done.
Even if I had to leave a place with my favourite people (so it turns out another old adage is true too, that absence does make the heart grow fonder!). -
Fast forward to today, I’m not nervous about the future.
On the way to what I don’t know.
But I know that I am on the way, because one thing I have learned in the past year is that the adventure never ends, it only changes.
Who knows what will happen next.
After all, a lot can happen in a year…
