Can I describe this year without resorting to that overused Charles Dickens opening? Truthfully, the "worst of times" could have been much worse. Everything was handled as best as possible, and I can't ask for more than that. A lot of difficult moments were really about moving forward and hoping for something more. An opportunity to restart without losing what matters most. For the first time in almost eight years, I was truly alone. At least, I felt alone. Not isolated, but simply occupying my own space and no one else's. So I moved forward, and found things to be even more complex and wonderful than I could've imagined previously. This is the year where everything changed, like I've gotten older and younger simultaneously. I've loosened up a bit. I don't take myself quite as seriously. All the same, my thoughts still get cloudy now and again. It'll take time to fully get what this year was about.
