I skipped out on a new year’s eve party tonight because I was just too tired. (I had my wonderful goddaughters here for most of the week – they just left yesterday evening.) But then I ended up staying up anyway!
I live on the side of a hill overlooking the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. I went out at midnight and watched the festivities. The fireworks were wonderful! People were shooting them off all over Ballard and I had a wonderful view of them.
It is pretty cool to think back to new year’s night last year and compare it to this year. I have come a long way in my healing and in reinventing myself into this new life. I think 2011 is going to be a good year! It is so nice to finally feel excited and hopeful about the future.
