The Year of Growth (2012)

2012 was a good year, and really the best in a while for me. I learned, I loved, I lost, I dealt with loss, I matured, I grew, I changed. I’m taking away so many life lessons from this year.

I learned that everything really does happen for a reason, even if you can’t understand the reason immediately.

I learned that friendship takes conscious effort on BOTH sides and you need to let go of some friendships to make way for new, more prosperous, life changing ones.

I learned that not everybody has your best interests at heart, but be careful not to block those who genuinely do from helping you.

I learned the balance and the difference between being a lion and a lamb. Each calls for its appropriate time but sometimes it’s best to stand back and be silent and watch things fall into place.

Most of all I learned to focus on the things in life that are most important to me:

Family, friends, love, laughter and future.

I pray that 2013 is the year for positive charge and happiness.

I wish you all a Happy New Year filled with happiness, blessing and love!
