So 2009 is almost over. I’m strangely optimistic. For me, this decade started in a pretty rough way. I lost my job. My father passed away.The singular upside was that I had also married an awesome woman who unknowingly became my reason for rising above these hard times.
Ultimately, these struggles forced me to grow in ways that I never expected. As the decade zoomed by I returned to school, began playing music in the public eye again, and learned a lot about what I really want out of life.
So what’s the point of this entry? Well, I rarely have one, but since my imaginary reader has asked I guess I’m on the spot.
I think I am finally learning to be thankful for some of the bad things that happen in life, because without them I probably would not have grown. Cliche? Yeah probably, True? Yup! I look forward to the changes that are coming in 2010, even though I now they won’t all be sun-drenched. soul-in love-with-the-world-joy. I look forward to it because I know I will be moving forward.
