2014 is the year of the wood horse. I’m not sure what this means. A quick gathering of internet commentary leads me to believe we’re on the verge of a high energy year, as in a galloping horse type of tempo, and apparently the wood element means sticking to one’s ideals. A great big year of everyone sticking to their own ideas and galloping over one another’s voices? I hope not. Maybe it can be a high energy year full of adventure and promise, strong choices, decisive action. Apparently there’s no room for dithering when horse is in the picture, so hold on to the saddle and get ready for the ride of your life.
I am hopeful for the new year—so many changes have happened. And there is, actually a long, seemingly overwhelming list of things to do this year—an elopement, a trip to the mainland to see family with my daughters in tow, a possible honeymoon, a milestone birthday for my significant other, an adult only honeymoon that said significant other is insisting upon, a party to celebrate wedding with our friends and loved ones.
I have also changed jobs and have come back to my new (old) job. I started on February 3rd, so I’m merely in week 2 of this adventure. And it feels like coming home. I bounced through last week with smiles on my face, attending multiple meetings and established new projects on the horizon—in keeping, I think, with this wild horses rhythm everyone is talking about.
I am so fortunate to have these wonderful and life changing things happen—so need to take a moment to write it all down, so as not to forget. February 10, 2014, I am looking with my own two eyes at all of these amazing things and I am thankful and grateful at how my life has changed.
