And this year that was full of difficult, life-changing decisions? Is almost over.
I can't say I'm not excited to see 2011 coming to its end. But this year that was so hard? Has taught so much.
That I am stronger than I thought.
That I can make it.
That some days? Are definitely harder than others.
That tears are ok.
But that through tears? There is laughter.
That I love with everything I have.
That slipping and tripping up sometimes? Happens.
That friends who care about you, are always there.
That sometimes all a girl needs? Is some sunshine.
That family is there for the ups and downs and everything else.
And that those who were once the tight, close, support system? Life is sometimes better off without them.
That jobs can come and go. But that this school program is only once, so those lessons? Are invaluable.
I started this blog because I had a lot of time on my hands. I'm going to continue it this upcoming year. Because being able to look back is important, and growing through struggle is vital. I stopped writing frequently because I didn't have a whole lot to say that was funny. Or well, that I thought was funny and worth sharing.
But sharing is important. Writing is important. Maintaining positive relationships is important. Taking chances are important. Learning is important. And in the last months that I have left in Albany before graduation in May? I'm going to do all of those things. Check back for a new blog.
Hope. Change. Believe. Strength. Love. Faith. Breathe.
For. The. Love.
