Goodbye to 2010

Here we are on the last day of the year, it seems to be very true that time speeds up as you get older, I can hardly believe another year has passed. Last New Years Eve was magical for me and I ended up taking a moonlit midnight walk through the woods to see in 2010. This year we're out celebrating with friends. What will you be doing at midnight?

I've lived, laughed and cried a whole lot this year and feel like I've learned one heck of a lot.

2010 was the year that taught me that home really is where the heart is and I think my heart has finally found somewhere to rest in contented peace and happiness.

2010 taught me to count life's blessings a little more. I have wonderful family and friends, I am in a happy relationship where I don't have to ask for affection it is given freely and unconditionally. I'm allowed to be my own person, my opinions aren't disregarded and I'm never made to feel stupid, even when I am :) I feel valued as a person and know I am loved. What more could a person ask for.

2010 saw me realise some long ago made dreams and probably the thing I am most proud of this year was getting to the top of Haystacks. OK so it's hardly Everest but for an unfit being like me it may as well have been and it's been something I wanted to do forever.I'm feeling full of hope and happiness, I'm making plans and dreaming big for 2011 but I still have a healthy amount of cautiousness. The last time I felt like this my whole world was ripped apart, I'm wary of opening myself up to that kind of hurt again, but if our hearts aren't open I guess we'll never have the opportunity to experience real joy and that's what I'm dreaming for in 2011.

    I've been away for New Year and am working my way back through missed posts so my comments may seem disjointed.

    Being yourself, feeling loved, these are precious things. I am so pleased that you have found someone who makes you feel this way.

    My best wishes to both of you for 2011.
