Reflections


“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, 
because her trust is not on the branch but on her own wings.
Always believe in yourself” – Unknown

Maybe it's seeing Facebook's "Year in review" posts or maybe it's that the New Year is fast approaching but I find myself spending a lot of time reflecting.   This morning the above quote came to mind.  "wings were made to fly" I kept thinking.  

2016 was a rough year
but
It's also the year I learned to fly

2016 was the year I got divorced
but
It's also the year I took my life back

2016 was the year of endings
but 
It's also the year of new beginnings

2016 was the year of hard lessons about friendship
but 
It's also the year I learned to be my own best friend

2016 was the year of sadness
but 
It's also the year I learned that I'm no longer afraid of the dark

2016 was the year of struggles
but 
It's also the year I learned how strong I am 

2016 was the year of financial challenges
but 
It's also the year I learned what I value most

2016 was the year when things fell apart
but 
It's also the year I learned how to build 

2016 was the year of much disappointment 
but
It's also the year I learned to see beauty in imperfection

2016 was the year I was blindsided and knocked off my center
but 
It's also the year I learned to fly

2016 was the year the branch broke 
but 
It's also the year I learned to put my trust in myself and not the branch
