“The battle of getting better is never ending” – Antonio Brown
As Autumn, and this year, are rolling to an end I couldn’t get myself to write another two-tiered post. Mainly because I don’t wish to either end or start out of harmony (did you honestly think I was capable of writing 50% of a story now and 50% next year?), but the excuse I will serve you today is that I don’t want to get you confused, not with the holidays coming up so soon.
You have better and more important things on your minds than my consisting-of-two-parts-posts I so long for you all to comment on.
Instead, I’ll write this one-piece-post about endings: the ending of Fall. The ending of 2018. And the ending of my innocence as a driver.
As a child, I never once questioned the seasons. My mind, however, saw the days grow shorter and so figured Winter started somewhere at the start of December. Say the first day of this month.
The thing is, I love Autumn’s colours and the weather getting colder and the smells when I go for a walk. But after the final leaf has fallen, my complete mindset jumps into Winter Mode. My idea of Fall is not one with empty branches, apparently.
And now Fall is really at its end. Winter is lurking at my doors and windows, eager to get in to, with quite a volatile relentlessness, freeze off my feet. Like it tries to every year.
Not being a real Winter fan, I can’t wait for the 21st, after which the days will slowly grow longer. I already yearn for Spring, wishing for the end of Winter even before it has begun.
Then there is this year coming to an end soon – in less than two weeks we’ll wish each other a “Happy New Year!”.
2018 was one heck of a ride, but, luckily, not near as terrible as 2015 or 2017 were. No casualties so far (except for that one car – but we’ll get to that). Instead, my self-confidence took a huge leap and I ended up with my own small business and my very first customer! An amazing trip to Finland saw one of my dreams come true and physically I couldn’t feel better. My old blog was successfully transformed into Heart to Follow and luckily I didn’t lose any of my readers or friends!
A big thank you to you all, for sticking by me, following me on my new adventures and inviting me to your personal space on the blogosphere in return! You all enriched my life, one by one, one way or the other. Thank you so much for that!
Then finally… As the daylight started to hide and I made my way over to my sister’s, I crashed into another car!
Nah, not really.
Apparently, even if I damage another car I do it delicately; as I tried to manoeuvre out of the way of three other cars coming towards me in a very tight street, I turned the corner too near to a parked car and scraped its front, causing light damage.
I left a note and found the other party kind and forgiving. We came to an agreement and things turned out fine for both of us in the end.
So all’s well that ends well. Or maybe all’s well that starts well.
Since this is the last main post I’ll be writing this year, I wish you all Happy Holidays and a marvellous 2019! May your conscious be light, your spirits bright and your heart happy and warm.
On to a great ending and a fantastic new beginning!
End of this Full Heart
