I love roller coasters, but the ride I’ve been on this year was way too much of a ride for me.
So much has happened that I’m not sure were to start and I'm sure I won't touch upon everything. I finished my second year teaching in June and then pretty much hibernated from everyone. It was one of my worst years teaching. I can’t even begin to explain. I was so emotionally and physically spent that I just had to crawl in a hole and hide for a few weeks.
It wasn’t pretty, but I was told by my pastor, Bill Clay, that it was my way of healing me. The up side of the time that this happened was that Eclipse was released and I saw it several times. It was a good release for me. I didn’t have to think and I could just escape or a few hours with no worries. Oh and when I say several time, I mean 10 times!
There have been other personal struggles that I choose not to delve into, but as I look back … this year was definitely a year of growth for me.
At the end of last year I posted some things I wanted to work on for this year and I can say that I may have accomplished one, maybe even more? Like I said I’ve been on one major rollercoaster ride with more downs than ups, but I can say I am very grateful for my job, especially in this economy and I find that speaking the truth can be very liberating.
I am truly looking forward to the new year and another fun filled ride.
Happy New Year Everyone!
