We've all heard the line, when one door closes another one opens. Well, this is the way that I feel about 2005. Vh1 and E! are doing recaps of all of the notable, entertaining, and even crazy events of this year. I can't help but reflect on all that has happened.
For me, I can't say that I am unhappy to bring this year to a close. 2005 offered some unique challenges. From a the effects of Hurricane Katrina and to launching a new business 2005 was fraught with confusing choices, life changing decisions, and perspective altering realizations. But, as I watch all of these year end wrap up shows, I am reminded of two things:
1) There is a whole month left in 2005. One where we concentrate on giving to those we love and to those who are less fortunate. To those closest to us, it is the thought and intention of love behind the gift that means the most-whether it is acknowledged or not. This intention of love and goodwill lifts our spirits and keeps us ALIVE!
2) The month of December is our last opportunity of the year to tie up loose ends. It is an opportunity for closure. It is an opportunity to settle a conflict, apologize for a mistake, or reconnect with someone who hasn't been at the top of our list. It is our last chance of 2005 to appreciate this year for all of the challenges and opportunities it has brought. It is our last chance to savor the growth and learning that has resulted at this stage in our lives. It is our opportunity to reevaluate our vision and our purpose; as a means of moving closer to who we are meant to be.
So, on Dec. 31st, let us celebrate the end of a hard year, closing the door so to speak. At the same time, let us invite the opening of 2006's door,looking forward to all of the great opportunities and possibilities with anticipation.
