Letting go of the yo-yo year
Letting go of the ups and downs
A year began on crutches and struggling in pain
A year ended in stress and ill-health
A year we lost Arthur and almost my Nan
Yet, also the year I finished my teaching diploma
The year I began to teach English as well as History
The year I was published and presented at conference
The year friendships developed and waned
The new ones to pursue with joy, the old to substance with love and hope, the decision to let go of the hurt of betray not yet reached for others
Family time all to short, the reminder they may not be around forever brought home
The year of yo-yoing up and down
Wishing for an easier year but that is unlikely to be
New adventures, challenges and trials await
My life is never easy, and the next steps may be hard
New teaching, study, adventure and joys
So I wave goodbye to the old year
Wave goodbye to the ‘why me?’
Its always going to be ‘why me’, for the road is never easy
But the decisions made, the lessons learned, the hope inside, the connections of blood and friendship will see me through the other side
So ‘why me’ but ‘why not me’?
So here’s to the new adventure, the new year.
Whatever hits me I will plod on
So goodbye to the old and welcome to the new
As I let go of 2016, the hope and love, gloom and hurt, the yo-yoest year so far known.
As I attempt to log the next years adventures, The highs and Lows. I am going for the #weeklyblogchallenge2017 although I might fail as I always do in the attempts to record activities in term time…..
