Goodbye 2013 (Thankfully), Hello 2014

So 2013 is dead and gone. As I write this 2014 is about 11.5 hours old here in Korea, and I’m pretty glad for that. The last year wasn’t all bad; there were many laughs, and plenty of fun. That said, I can tell you that 2013 was, with out a doubt, the worst year of my life.

Trust me on this. I’m not going to go into it, and I’m sure many people had worse 2013s than I did. Millions and millions of them I’d guess. Still, for me this was a really, really bad year. So yeah, good-bye 2013, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Now, I like to think I’m no fool. I don’t expect life to suddenly be better just because I need a new calendar to hang on the wall. But I do plan to do what I can to set the ship back on course in 2014. I expect that there will be a lot of bumps on the way, but come December 31st I hope to be looking back on 2014 as a year of change (for the better) and new beginnings. The only resolution I’m making this year is to grab life with both hands, take some risks and start down the path of a life that’s more in line with how I want to live than recent years have been. It’s time to jump off some cliffs and build wings on the way down.

How about you? How was your 2013? Where are you going in 2014?
