I recently stumbled upon the above quote where I do all my deep reading, Pinterest. I couldn’t help but think about how true it was. 2012 was a little rough. I wound up living back at my parents’ house, jobless, single, with no signs of change on the horizon. It was in that year I asked a lot of whys -Why that relationship? Why this location? Why this situation?? 2012 was absolutely a question-asking year.
Thankfully, 2013 provided answers. Leaving one job meant I could eventually take a new one in March. Living with my parents meant I could save, work on the book, and later move into a great living situation with two of my best friends in June. October brought my niece and my birthday. As I blew out my candles, I remember thinking, I want for nothing more. My heart is full. A few weeks later, being single meant I could meet a fireman;) … Turned out there was still room in the year for him;)
Lots of answers to lots of questions. Here are a few of my favorites: (In the form of an acrostic. Because I am a dork.)

Writing these types of posts is always a bit difficult because I don’t know what kind of year you’ve had. If this is a question-asking year, hang in there. Answers will come. If it’s a question-answering year, I celebrate with you and challenge us both to be present in the moment. Life is full of ups and downs and they all lead us somewhere.
