Another Year Down

Middle of a Moment

If this is what my family has to be
Then I don’t need one watching over me
A family doesn’t make you sleep outside
A family doesn’t laugh and say you lie
Remember what a home is
Think of how your life should be
But you’re stuck in the middle of a moment
Can’t crawl out of where you are
Only steps away the world’s okay
But you can’t see that far
Stuck in the middle of a moment
That’s halfway to somewhere new
Can’t go back
You’re moving through
You’ll have to think in ways you never thought
You’ll have to make the best of what you’ve got
Find the answers hiding in between
See a door no one’s ever seen
Something’s there you feel it
Stop to look it’s all around
So you’re stuck in the middle of a moment
No clear path no shining star
Just a step away the world’s okay
So try to see that far
And there in the middle of a moment
You’re halfway to somewhere new
Can’t go back Keep moving through
‘Cause there is magic
Now you know
You made magic
Made it grow
And marvelous wonderful things can come true
In the middle of a moment
In the middle of a moment
In the middle of a moment
You’re on your way

~James and the Giant Peach-The Musical

Another year successfully in the books. As I was contemplating the post for today, I came across this song from James and the Giant Peach-The Musical.

Now, first…how AWESOME that it’s a musical?? Like seriously one of the best books ever, and now a musical. #Awesome.

Second, the lyrics just triggered exactly what I wanted to say.

It’s been a year of growth, discovery, life, love and learning. A couple years ago I was “stuck”. I knew what was behind me and what could be ahead. There was a light at teh end of the tunnel, but I couldn’t see it yet. Well, thanks to everyone for friends, family, students, colleagues, fellow bloggers, and many more, over the past few years, especially this last year, I’ve become unstuck and have been moving forward. I’m now seeing the light and it is magical! So for everyone who’s been in my life this year thank you! 🙂

I couldn’t be the man I am today without you! I hope today is just as magical and awesome as it is for me! And can’t wait for this next year of life!

Until next time

Peace, Love and Pandas!
