It is a new year. The time when people set resolutions for what they will accomplish or change in their lives. For me, it is a strange time. Lots of changes and transitions in my life. Lots of old things, old patterns that have gone away, replaced with new ones that I’m not so sure that I like. Life, as always, is bittersweet, filled with both happiness and tears. I suppose that is the way it’s supposed to be.

Sometimes I fear that the new patterns are too much, that I cant survive without the old ones, that I can’t fill the void that their destruction has left behind.

But I can adapt. I can change. I believe things happen for a reason and we can use the hard times in our life to our advantage. As always, I have my faith. I have friends and family that support and love me. I can approach the hard times in life in a way that in the end can strengthen, not destroy me. I can create new patterns that will replace and hopefully improve upon the old ones. And I have my faith. Of all the things in my life, I am most grateful for that, perhaps second only to the ability to choose.
