Dear 2014 and My Readers,

I could so relate to this post. It’s been a year with lots of change and ups and downs. Acceptance and non acceptance of people. Having to recognize and accept my circumstances and things that are the way they are and I can’t change them. Instead, I am working on the things I CAN change. I’m getting rid of the things (and people) that don’t matter and take up too much of my mental energy just thinking about them. Those that don’t want to be part of my journey? Their loss. I have a life to live with or without them. I’m going to have a great 2015! Everything is going up from here!
