Not too long ago, I wrote about my lack of enthusiasm for the Christmas holiday season. And in spite of that track record, I always look forward to the beginning of a new year.
2014 was probably the most difficult year of my life, and I have been through a lot up until this year without needing to break any records. I lost a dear friend to the same cancer that I have survived all these years. My dad passed away from lung cancer. Of course, there is a divorce that I am dealing with, that is nowhere near final, and showing no signs of letting up as far as tension.
But in spite of how shitty 2014 has been, and to be honest, 2015 is going to be a bit rough out of the gate, I do have hopes that 2015 is going to be a better year. It has to be. I will probably skip right through January if you do not mind because I want to start the year off without giving any attention to the negative aspects of my life, which I hope to have under control entering February.
So with that, here is a step-by-step plan on how I plan to make 2015 better.
1. getting my divorce issues straightened out, and finally moving forward
2. hold my daughters, and spend more time with them
3. spend more time with my friends, whether it is long-distance, or in my back yard. With as dark as 2014 has been, each and everyone who has stood by me, has done nothing but offer me support and encouragement. And that will never be forgotten.
4. Josephine, what can be said about the year 2014 between the two of us. I know the heart that you have, and I cannot wait to see what a year without loss and turmoil will bring us.
So with that, my plan for 2015 is simple. Nothing tricky at all what I would like, or how to get there.
My wish is for everyone reading and supporting “Paul’s Heart” is to have a healthy and Happy New Year!
