My 2015 Year In Review

2015…

It was the year I finally mustered the courage to stare my debt directly in the eye and tell it that it would be vanquished.

It was the year I moved back to that mythical city by the bay full of daring dreams, breathtaking views, and an idealism found nowhere else.

It was the year I left gaming and started working for one of the top tech companies in the world in the hopes of making a real difference in the world.

It was the year of abundant beauty and love. Lonely lighthouses, unexplored northern shores, hidden beaches in valleys, silent waterfalls in the park. We became explorers of the bay, if only for those few months.

It was the year of the broken heart and the vanished future.

It was the year that expectations grew too unwieldy and collapsed into the cold, sunken limitations of reality.

It was the year of retreat and the stillness of an unfurnished apartment.

It was the year of blessings in ruins.

It was the year I learned to love myself.

It was the year I gathered the courage to choose a life of happiness.

It was the year of 4th of July fireworks on Lake Travis with a handsome stranger I had just met.

It was the year I said goodbye to San Francisco and decided on Austin as my future.

It was the year of Camp Grounded and writing on a typewriter by the lake.

It was the year of forgiveness, and gratitude, and being open to the universe.

It was the year of uncharted territory in the maps of our hearts.

It was the year of drinking around the world at Epcot.

It was a year for setting up a future of abundance in beauty, friends, love, success, and happiness.

It was a year worth living.
