Welcome to 2013!
New Year’s day always is a day of anticipation, we have before us a book of blank pages just waiting to be filled with whatever we wish. I’m sort of a book nerd, so be prepared for a lot of book analogies!
2012 was full of blessings, major life steps, and life lessons. I completed my second season as a National Park Ranger, and was blessed to be my dream goal of an Interpretive Ranger at Mesa Verde National Park. I ended a long relationship and learned how to step out of my shell. I somehow graduated from college with my bachelors degree at the age of 21. I would list the life lessons but that would take three or four hours. 😉
So now I stand with my blank book of 2013, and I am completely shocked of all the possibilities. I have the opportunity to go anywhere in the US to work with the National Park Service. I have the support from my family behind me holding me up. I have grown in so many ways this last year, that hopefully I won’t need to be taught those life lessons again. Although, I am a slow learner when it comes to life, so I’m sure I’ll be learning them again.
It’s a breathtaking feeling. It’s like standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon, looking across fresh fallen snow in a full moon light, or watching the sun rise up from the Atlantic Ocean.
So many possibilities! One life lesson that definitely stuck, is you receive what you give to the world. Hard work and dedication does pay off in the end, you finally get to reach up and make your dreams into reality.
Adventure is out there! You just have to find it. 🙂
