I'm glad that someone was wise enough to create a calendar, particularly the restart every 365 days. Last year too much of my mental energy was spent on not being content. Constantly reevaluating everything in the hopes of growing one step closer to arriving. Perfection is the goal no doubt, but self oriented striving has a way of leading us down strange side roads. I haven't yet found the balance between being satisfied and longing. To be content in the mess of the now, while enjoying the pursuit of perfection. Too often the mess frustrates and the pursuit demoralizes.
My mind has that natural tendency to focus on the worst and the best, glossing over rest. My blogging probably paints a dark background with exploding splotches randomly appearing. The reality is that life is good, really good. Teresa is amazing, our marriage is everything that I could ever desire. Our health is fine, our jobs are great. We have some really good friends, and some great people that we're journeying with. I'm happy, and having fun.
It's a new year, and regardless of what the media says, there is a lot to be excited about.
