The ugly & the beautiful of 2015.

Two thousand and fifteen was one of those years when the bad and good danced together as if they didn’t know they were so different from one another.

I felt sorrow that left me hopeless and with no intention to face the days ahead.

  • My Lolo passed away in April.
  • Brad’s aunt passed away in September.
  • Mom’s diabetes worsened.
  • I lived without my best friend.
  • I fell into the deepest depression I’ve ever faced.
  • My parents split up.
  • My relationship was tested by the devil himself.

In spite of each sorrow taunting me with its ruthlessness, I finally began to open my eyes to the happy moments that accumulated; there were so many happy moments.

So what do I do with this two-faced nostalgia?  I remember and learn and get excited and accept.

Although bemindfulandhappy.com launched in 2015, I can’t wait to get elbow-deep in this community in 2016.  I’ve become so humbled that my favorite bloggers have shared their worlds and wisdom with me; I’d like to do the same.

Happy new year, my sweet friends!  May you be mindful in all of your happy moments.
