HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2010, you're finaaaally here! I've been waiting endlessly for you!
I can't believe its been 10 years since we were all counting down to the year 2000, its crazy how fast time goes. I feel like it was just yesterday when people (of this world) were panicking that the world was gonna end in the year 2000. 2009 was definitely a craaazy year. So many ups and downs along the way, and it was thee most LOVE-HATE-HATE-HATE-LOVE relationships I've ever had with a year, if that even makes any sense.
As I look back on the year, I feel as if I let it slip by to fast and didn't embrace it as much as I should have towards the end. I wanted SO BAD for this year to be over because of all the crying and heartache and mourning I went through, but it was truly a learning experience.
I've learned that it's okay to let people into your life, but still keep those who continue to stay with you close to you, and to just cut people off when THEY no longer feel that they don't need you around or are appreciative of the sacrifices you do for them. I no longer considered myself as a 'young adult' this past year, I've learned to deal with things on my own without the help of Daddy & Mommy, but to still deal with things in a manner that is respectful, responsible and in accordance to Him. I realized that I really CAN'T live without having a duty; I took a break from KADIWA this year, and it was the hardest and longest 3 weeks of my life. My relationship with my parents and siblings has grown even stronger everyday, and I truly appreciate it.
I'm so thankful for my friends and family who have still stuck by me along the way. They're the ones who always dry my tears whether their near or far, and comfort me and support me along the way. I've gained new friendships and ended a few that really were no longer needed. I've grown closer to a few friends whom I once drifted away from, and extremely thankful for 5 women who I know will remain in my life forever.
2009, you were filled with so much laughter, crying, crying, laughter, heartache, and mourning, but all in all, I'm THANKFUL. Another year passed and another year now awaits us. Time for a fresh new start and new memories.
HELLOOO 2010, I can't wait to see what awaits me!
