The Year It Begins

Instead to finding yourself, begin with being yourself...

The Year It Begins

Have you ever turned to a friend and made a pact?  You know, one of those, "Okay, if the two of us are still single at 35, we'll get married" pacts.  Come on, most of us have...

In University, I made one of those pacts...  It was with my best friend as we were walking to class or to get lunch or something like that, but I remember exactly where we were standing, when the moment happened...

He was bugging about something and I turned to him and said, "Okay, how about this if we are still single when we turn 35, we'll get married..." And with his reply, I remembered that he was a year & a half older than me.  So, I quickly made a stipulation, "No. No...  When I turn 35, actually!"

And suddenly, this conversation was always there as our little joke that we always had...  It was always there lingering in the background...  It was our year, no matter what else happened...

Life has a way of reminding us of what's important...and reminding us that it is all too short.  7 years ago, my best friend, passed away suddenly and 3 1/2 years ago I got married (before the age of 35).

Now that that mythical year - 2014, that date that was always defined life, is almost here, it must mean something...  It's something more than a regular year...

It is The Year It Begins.

I don't know what this truly means...  But I am about to find out and more importantly, it is about to begin.

 To the Year It Begins...
