and making room for more positive.
2014, it’s been a year. I made some wonderful memories this year, but have also formed some not-so-hot ones…to say the least. I’ve always known that without experiencing the bad, a person cannot appreciate the good. One cannot exist without the other. I also know that the bad typically overpowers the good, making it difficult to let the good shine. Admittedly, this year, I’ve allowed negativity to pull it’s usual stunt of choking out the positive way more than I should have. It’s been a trying year, but despite the negativity, stress and tests of both strength and character, I remain optimistic that positivity, gratitude and understanding will win the battle.
To aid in banishing the negativity from our lives, each year, my family and I burn it away. Throughout the year, I do small burns, but on New Year’s Eve, the big burn occurs. This year, tons of unsavory characters, experiences and thoughts were thrown into the fire. The fire burned smoother and quicker than ever, so I’m taking that as a sign that this year will be a good one.
Here’s to the one incredible year!
