Reflection

Reflecting upon 2013 I have to admit that it hasn't been the best of years. It started with high hopes & expectations & ended with deaths & a rather unhealthy dose of betrayal from close ones...& believe me - I have a hard enough time trusting people, so this year's events definitely helped fuel that fire. So here I am at the very end of the year, realizing that I just don't let people in anymore. It's like they're getting a sneak peak of the preview, but are banned for ever getting to watch the entire movie. Do I like the privacy it creates? Or do it make me more detached & entangled in my own misanthropic world view? What has it all taught me? If anything at all it's probably shined a light on how highly I value loyalty & integrity...& I know it's quite the paradox with me sharing all this stuff here & at the same time feeling the need of opening more up, but it's true. Cause even with all my dinky medical issues & me seemingly wallowing in pain 24/7 because of it, I do lead quite the blessed life. But I don't seem to give it the recognition it deserves. Hmm... 
I actually think that I'll be making that my only New Year's resolution in 2014; To give recognition to all the positive blessings in my life. No matter how small or quaint they might be, they do deserve some attention. HaHa I just caught myself doing this:
...when I read what I had wrote. :P HaHaHa!

Aaanyway, do you have any resolutions for the coming year? ;)
