Does this always have to mean endings?
I suppose, in many ways, it does. I don’t happen to think they are always interchangeable.
I am anxious and eager to find out what this year will bring to my life. I am a mess of emotions about it really. Interspersed in there somewhere are moments of relative calm though. I had a few of those last night, watching a Gilmore Girls and their Year in the Life four-part updated series from last November, drinking wine, and trying fondue for (what I think) was my very first time.
I will start, hopefully not from the beginning, with a renewed commitment to learning to play violin.
I will get what I need to get done in the coming weeks, to take a journey of sorts, both literally and figuratively.
This song was from Disney’s Moana soundtrack last year. When I heard it I immediately thought I would save it to post at the start of 2017 and that

would be the perfect place for it.
I am declaring myself as taking more of a journey in this year of transitions and big first steps in my life. I will conquer my fear.
I’ve been staring at the edge of the water ‘Long as I can remember, never really knowing why I wish I could be the perfect daughter But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try
Every turn I take, every trail I track Every path I make, every road leads back To the place I know, where I cannot go Where I long to be
See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me And no one knows, how far it goes If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go
Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh
I know, everybody on this island seems so happy on this island Everything is by design I know, everybody on this island has a role on this island So maybe I can roll with mine
I can lead with pride, I can make us strong I’ll be satisfied if I play along But the voice inside sings a different song What is wrong with me?
See the light as it shines on the sea? It’s blinding But no one knows, how deep it goes And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me And let me know, what’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?
See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me And no one knows, how far it goes If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me One day I’ll know, how far I’ll go
Alessia Cara – How Far I’ll Go (Lyrics)
The home I know brings me constant comfort and the courage to keep hoping and striving in life.
I know this is shaping up to be a big year, in several ways, and that some are afraid. I know, believe me, I know.
I NEED to do this.
And so, Happy 2017 to all, and Cheers to new beginnings.
