Reflection on New Years Eve 2011 (written 12/31/11)

It’s the end of the year. I feel like I’ve come a very long way and I am standing in front of a door I’ve never seen before. I can’t go back. There is nothing for me there. I can only go forward, through this door. But for the moment, I want to contemplate the door itself — its shape and size and color and heft. I won’t be back this way again, and so I want to pause and pray a prayer of gratitude for having made it safely this far. Thanks for all those wonderful moments in the journey and the loving souls I’ve been blessed to share this time with. I take a few long, deep breaths and pray for continued guidance and protection as I open the door to 2012 and step into the awaiting adventure.

About Sharon

Like anyone who lives long enough, I have experienced great loss and survived. I am convinced that my survival depends on my own participation in creating the reality I am living in, and I am determined to be a thoughtful and active participant/creator. These writings are my way of documenting that creation. As the song goes, "I will survive!" I chose the title Staying Vertical because I find that surviving isn't just staying on my feet physically. Keeping my thoughts and emotions on the vertical plane keeps me alive and moving forward. Thanks for joining me!
