Twenty twelve was the year we were all supposed to die.
But we didn't.
I'd call it a success for that alone.
Happy New Year!
Ha, you really thought I'd post so few words? C'mon! I'm little miss wordy and over-explanatory, pshhh.
This year was tough, tough tough. Sometimes bad sometimes just, challenging. I lost 2 of the most important people to me in a short period of time. I learnt how to be single, and peacefully so (at the ripe young age of 19 I was once a serial dater). I worked my first 40 hour-a-week job that threw my stress and anxiety levels through the roof. I was told stories about past experiences that exposed truths I didn't think possible and challenged everything I'd believed previously. Not all of this was bad though, a lot of it brought amazing lessons.
I know I can get through anything now. Literally.
And that knowledge is powerful.
That doesn't mean I'll always deal with things well, or that nothing will upset me. I will not always be graceful in the way I handle my emotions. Shit happens. But at least I know in the long run I'll calm down and get over it.
There were some really good things too.
My trip to Belgium.
Moving into my first apartment.
My 19th birthday.
And so many more amazing memories with people who are so important to me.
Which is actually the biggest thing about 2012 - I know who means most to me, and that they genuinely deserve the places in my heart I've made for them. After so much doubt brought on by past experiences, I know these people are for real.
Tomorrow I leave to Costa Rica for a week - I'll be there for new years eve! So here's me wishing you all a happy new year, and I hope you all celebrate well and find solace in the fact that the world didn't end this year. I was serious about that being enough for me, we all got a second change from the universe! Let's take it and use it to our advantage in 2013!
