I see a lot of “good riddance to 2014” sentiment going around, and I understand. The last year saw a lot of distressing things — for me personally, for friends and loved ones, for communities I cherish, for the world.
But it also contained great joy. Triumph and new experience and new life and marvelous people.
2014 didn’t suck.
And I, personally, well — I’m sort of an optimist. I am a fretful, worrying, plan-for-disaster optimist. I look back at 2014 and think, “goodness, that could have been SO MUCH worse! I’m glad it wasn’t!”
And I am. Glad. I am genuinely glad and grateful and pleased with the last year.
For one thing, without the last year, I wouldn’t be who I am and where I am today. And I like me. So there’s that.
2014 could have been worse. I’m looking forward to 2015.
See you on the flipside, Internets.
