A New Year, A New Start

I sit here basking in the soft glow on Christmas lights, listening to the familiar chatter in the living room. Deep inside me there is a sense of contentment and peace that I haven't felt in a long time. Long enough that I can't pinpoint when I've felt this at ease.

At this moment I look forward to the new year and a new start to life! Tonight I will celebrate a successful decompression surgery, a great recovery and the chance to really *live* my life again. A life free from headaches and chronic pain; a life full of laughter, adventure and love.

Here's to a fantastic 2010!
