Every year around this time (ie yesterday), I turn a year older and this causes me to sit back and look to the previous year and contemplate what I have done, what I am doing and what I will do.
Last year I looked at the number 43 (post has gone missing), and what that means to me, but just after that post an amazing thing happened…life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you don’t know you are looking for. I met a wonderful, understanding life partner who has brought great joy and happiness over the past year.
As I celebrated the completion of 43 years on this rock and enter into my 44th year with something truly amazing to look forward to.
I now have an amazingly complex newly extended family, my daughter now lives with me full time and wedding bells will soon be heard throughout the land as I commit myself to the most wonderful woman I have ever met.
As I sit back and reflect on the passage of time I see that everything that has happened to me in the past has prepared me to be exactly where I am today.
I stand next to the Yin to my Yang, the Batman to my Robin, and dare I say publicly…the Kama to my Sutra!
Has the world thrown us some curve balls over the past year…sure but we have met every challenge, trial and tribulation with kindness and support for each other and I truly can’t see myself with anyone else EVER so as I look behind me…I only want to look to tomorrow, next week, next year.
Reflection is good…but now I truly feel that I have a reason to not look to my past but to look to my future.
Cheers to me and my 44th Year!!!
