you can’t fall if you don’t climb, but there’s no joy in living your whole life on the ground.

2014.

*******************************************

A year where I was fortunate enough to move into yet another lovely new home (my 7th move in 12 years!).

A year that saw my daughter enter the next phase of her schooling life – she began Primary Year 1 in September and is currently thriving in the amazing environment of her new school.

A year where I met people with a shocking lack of integrity as well as individuals who lived their lives with beautiful personal values and principles.

A year that reinforced my cynicism about marital fidelity yet at the same time, gave me a renewed sense of hope that in an age where romance is an emoticon and instant gratification is a swipe away, faithfulness and loyalty is not a thing of the past and love can flourish in the most unexpected circumstances.

A year where some individuals I knew brought out the very worst in me, while others brought out the very best.

A year that was marked by four memorable holidays spent with people who are nearest and dearest to my heart.

A year where an unorthodox birthday celebration led to a newfound love for rock climbing – a passion which has taken up much of the second half of the year, and is now shared by the little one as well.

*******************************************

While 2013 was a year of rediscovery, a year where I gained clarity about what I wanted…2014 was a year where I finally took a leap of faith, and in doing so, learnt that some risks are worth taking, some things are worth fighting for and if it’s right, it happens…nothing good gets away*. After the highs and lows of 2013, this year has truly been an upward journey, very much like an awesome climb that continues to take your breath away the higher you go.

Above everything else, 2014 was a year where I was infinitely and immeasurably blessed with so much joy, love and grace.

And for that, I am humbled and grateful beyond words for a year that has been nothing short of beautiful.
