Something Fresh

I think there's something about a beginning that helps put an end to an end.

Something about this January
something about this year
feels fresh.

And something has clicked.
Something feels right.
I no longer feel like I'm stuck in a redundant cycle of "ends,"
but like I'm on the verge.

On the verge of what, I don't know.
But it's something new.
Something adventurous.
Something fresh.
Something 2013,
not 2012.

It feels good,
really good,
to close a chapter that was so difficult
and open another that has only begun.


  1. Me, too. Only I haven't quite gotten to the ending of a painful chapter yet. I'm hoping it will come soon...

    Hope your year is amazing! You deserve a great one! :)

    1. When the chapter does end, the timing couldn't feel more right, I'll tell you that much.
      Keep at it, Lacey, you'll get there. You're in my prayers!!
