It may be because I'm an emotional person to begin with, but I love New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Don't get me wrong, I love to wear sparkles and curl my hair and dance the night away, but to me, that's not the part that is the most special. I love these two days of the year because they are a turning point - a new beginning.
Today, on December 31, 2013, I feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I have a beautiful life and 2013 has graced me with more blessings than I can count. I distinctly remember last year on this day feeling like 2013 was going to be the best year yet, and it really was. I have so much love in my life and I cannot express my gratitude enough.
With this sense of peace and contentment, I want to take a moment to look back on this wonderful year and relive all of the gifts I was given, the struggles I muddled through, and the tears I cried from laughing so hard.
Tomorrow will be a day for new beginnings.
Today is a day for sweet memories.
Thank you 2013 for a wonderful year. You surprised me in ways I couldn't have predicted and brought me more love than I thought I deserved. What a beautiful year you were!
