I wrote a reflection on my year in 2014 (2014 in Reflection) and, looking back, to see when and where I was in my life at each month in the past is a very powerful experience. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly things can change and directions in Life can alter. This time last year I was preparing to begin a new career, was steadily becoming more infatuated with a new relationship, and the worst loss I had to cope with was that of a broken heart. 2015 brought about a whole new level of craziness that only reinstates Peonies ‘n Mint’s tagline: I am truly blessed to have loved, lost and gained so much.
Never say, “Things cannot get worse.” Typically, when you place such negative thoughts on a certain situation, things likely will get very much worse. I learned this firsthand this past weekend. Just when I thought my “vacation” to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan had hit rock-bottom, another stone rolled away to allow the rock slide to continue downward.
