What? It's over? Already? This year has gone by so fast and at the same time not at all. Day by day, I thought that this year was a really long one. I couldn't wait for what was coming next. This was a big year of change for me in many ways. I graduated from University, Traveled around Europe, started working full time. Old friendships were strengthened and new friendships lit up my life, adding new joy and sparkle. I'm so incredibly grateful. As I keep living my life, I am constantly reminded about how much good there is in the world. Of course, tragedy also strikes in many forms and areas of our lives but just when i've written off this shit-hole of a world, I am hit with such kindness and inspiration.
I have been so fortunate that I have such amazing, inspiring people surrounding me. I can safely say that all the people who are my friends and family are "good ones." Sometimes I look around and think I am so lucky. This feeling is quickly followed by anxiety that someone will look through the window of whatever house I'm in and see how wonderful my people are and steal my friends and family. They are too marvelous. I know. You are jealous but you can't have them.
2012 was a year that supposed to be the end of the world. So I took that upon myself to bring positive changes into the limited timed before the Mayan Zombies came and ate our brains. (Did I not get that right?) I started taking care of myself. A novel concept that has become, dare I say it, kind of nice. I made time for the people who actually mattered and who are also generous with their time. I didn't say 'yes' to everything because surprise, surprise I'm not a robot who can function without anytime for herself. I focused on myself. What did I want to do with my precious time regardless of what others thought. I chose not to get as stressed. I went to bed? WHAT? I tried to look on the sunny side and sometimes it worked. These were small 2012 changes and sometimes I felt good.
We only get one life, unless of course you believe in reincarnation (in which case, you can take this or leave it) so we might as well make this a good life. So in 2013, I invite you to be your best self. Have fun and do what you love. You are one of a kind my darling and I'm so pleased that you are a star in my life sky. Kiss, Kiss!
