I've been thinking about 2010 a lot over the last month and have been drawing a blank about what to say. This doesn't happen to me often; I can usually find something to say about almost anything. Maybe that's not right- I can find things to say, but it isn't what I want to come out. That is more accurate. My thoughts are scattered and trying to reign them in and pick the right words to describe what I am thinking is escaping me. I was looking over a few years of blog posts when I looked to the side of my blog and noticed this quote again:
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt
Dallas and I have lived this quote this past year. Whether it has been through tough classes, or tough races, we have both taken risks and won some glorious triumphs of our own. We have been able to watch some people that are living in that gray twilight that T.R. is speaking about, and I know that I would rather fail, and fail hard, than live in that place where there is no growth.
2010 was a good, hard, emotionally trying, physically rewarding, laughing, loving year.
How grateful we are to be together as we face 2011- ready for any challenges and triumphs that await us.
