With a heavy heart I say farewell to 2015 to look back upon some of the best moments here on my blog. It was a spectacular year of self-discovery for me (I feel like I say that every year!) and I believe that is shown strongly in my posts. However, this was also a year dedicated to you, the readers, because I received some incredible user-submissions and made some great friends in the comments. In fact, some of those user-submissions are in the queue right now for the new year.
Without further ado, let’s look back on the most recent orbit around our sun:
- Perhaps the highlight of 2015 was my trip with my sister, my brother, and my brother’s fiancé to Norway and Iceland. I captured this trip in a few posts:
- There was the birth of the Conscious Talks series.
- It seems so long ago, but I embarked on a brief but magical adventure to Big Sur in the Spring and wrote my features, Time enough to Let it All Go and Memory Lane
- I introduced computer science to my blog, through the Coding for Cancer project
- Last but certainly not least, I expanded my Diamondis previews, while still keeping the mystery alive:
I will leave you with one of the most important lessons I learned in 2015. When you ask a question, you must be prepared to face an answer that comes along with many more questions. It is easy to settle for uncertainty, wondering only “if” and not “when” in pursuit of your ambitions. In 2015 I learned that the more questions I asked, the more ominous the immediate future became but also that the treasure just beyond the horizon is worth the journey. Pursue an answer to the questions in your life, especially those that will bring you closer to your passions, your dreams, and to those you love.
With sincerity and gratitude, I wish you all a happy New Year. I am so very excited for what will come from 2016.
