In with the new...

A year ago I was fervently hoping that 2010 would be better than 2009. Looking back on it, it was, despite the rocky spots. I said goodbye to my marriage and one of my best friends, but made some new friends and built on existing friendships. I went to St. Louis to see Sarah and the kids, took my first solo roadtrip in years, finally saw Collective Soul, and spent Christmas with my family in Houston. I learned a lot about myself this year, and I've opened some doors that I'd thought were closed. In a lot of ways I'm a different woman than I was a year ago, and that's a good thing.

Being alone is an adjustment, and I get lonely sometimes, but I'm comfortable and happy with who I am, and that's something I couldn't say last year at this time. Would I like to have someone in my life? Yes, I would, but until then, I'm happy with my own company and my friends.

Happy New Year everyone. I predict that 2011 is going to be a good one.
