When 2016 Rolled In…. (Happy New Year)

This entry is pointless nostalgia. More of a ramble than anything else. There are so many things that are currently happening to me right now that we’re so abstract to me, once upon a time. There was a life point where I could only wish to see tomorrow. I’ve been wishing for this day for a long time, I just didn’t know what it looked like.
I’m sitting at a 2nd floor view of the sky from our bedroom window. A bedroom inside a house. A house with barely any furniture because we’ve just moved in. We have a front yard, a backyard, and 4 lovably annoying pets that call it a home with us. I have an *us* to refer to.
Abstract concepts, once upon a time.
I’m thankful for every day that I can say, “I’ve made it this far.”
Although none of the above makes my life complete – I don’t believe there is ever such a thing – it does add to its substance. I don’t need a house. I don’t need a lover. I don’t need pets to fill the place of what most people would fill with children of their own. I don’t NEED any of that. I was a completely happy woman without those things, but they do color my life and add a richness to it.
I would’ve been happy with many other combinations of life, but I’m happy with the ones that chose me. I feel a lot of gratitude for their presence. Humbled by the experience that got me here, I still fight for more.
Happy New Year.
