reflections on the year i thought i lost everything.

how's that for a cryptic title?
to say that 2013 was a year of growth for me feels like a bit of an understatement.

there was so much beauty,

a gianormous "rough patch,"

and some pretty huge moments of growth.

i have never felt more fulfilled,

but before that came suffering. 
i have never felt so alone.

i have been stretched emotionally 
and spiritually in ways i couldn't have imagined.

i have been shaped and molded by circumstance.

i have been blessed beyond measure.

i have learned lessons i didn't know i needed to learn.

and though parts of me were so glad to kiss 2013 goodbye,
i know that none of what's to come would happen without first
living every experience the year handed me.

here's to an awesome 2014.
