Dear 2011

Dear 2011,

Looking back over the year we spent together I can't help but feel sadness.  Sadness and disappointment.  Sadness over, well, my sadness.  The last few months were spent in a fog, a haze, rain, darkness.  And disappointment.  Disappointment that I didn't do more of what I wanted to do.

However, there were some good times.  There was meeting the Musketeers.  And the trip we had in Vegas for spring break.  That was a fun time.  There was my first job interviews.  Getting a new car.  Being a leader on a high school mission trip to Wisconsin.  My first part-time teaching job.

I wonder if you feel bad.  For bringing that sadness into my life.  Or are you in cahoots with Self-Doubt.  Perhaps Wariness.  Or Lost Dreams.  Regardless, you have been a year that has taught me much.  But I can't say that I'm sad to see you go.

Bon Voyage!

  1. Sorry your year was such a disappointment. This year was hard for me as well, and many others. I lost three family members this year, as well as a close family friend. Here's hoping 2012 will be a much better year for you and me both!


Life is busy, thanks for taking a moment to leave a note!
