New Year

So, 2011 is over, and I can’t say I’m sad about it. Last year was rough. And it wasn’t just rough for us; if you’re one of the lucky ones whose 2011 was phenomenal, more power to you, but I need at least two hands to count the friends and family I have who had quite a difficult time last year.

That being said, I’m not exactly gleeful about the new year. Because if I learned one thing from 2011, it’s this: Things can always be worse.

(Pollyanna has officially left the blog.)

I’m not grumpy about it; the realization itself has brought quite a bit of lightness. I try to enjoy what I have, even if I’m not thrilled about it, because I know¬†things can look much bleaker. I thought the first half of last year was pretty crummy, and then in the second half of the year we found out Jesse’s dad has advanced cancer. So, the first half of the year wasn’t so bad, in light of what came later. I’m trying to keep this in mind as I walk into the new year, knowing that change is life’s only constant.
