The Year It Begins

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

My Second New Years...

7 years...  Has it really been 7 years?

Yesterday was my second New Years...  And year 7 has now begun...

If you have ever lost someone close to you, you know what I trying to articulate already... 

7 years ago, I was literally sitting on a toilet in the bathroom and my either, my phone rang or I called my dad and my dad told me the news...  "I don't know how to tell you this, but Mike passed away."  "No. that can't be.  What?  Really?" And then I luckily for me had my sense of humour kick in.  I got off the phone, I flushed the toilet, and my next thought was, "Well, if life as I know it is going to go down the toilet, I might as well be sitting on it." 

Come on...  You have to laugh!  :)

It's one of those things where it feels like so long and then there are the moments, where it feels like it was just yesterday...  But I also look to January 12 as that day every year where I get a restart...  You don't like how the first 11/12 days of the year went?  You get a restart!

2007, starting on January 12 was one of those years where I had so much bad luck and bad energy that I joke that I had to pass my bad year off to three other people and my next year got better immediately after January 12, 2008.

I have been very lucky that I have had amazing family and friends to get me through these past 7 years, when things I do are a little unorthodox...  Thank you...  I also have made sure that the weekend right before involves a trip out of town and for the first two or three years there was also random theatre... 

So, here's to year 7.  Each one is hard, but time must go on...
