Hello Loves, sorry I've not posted anything in a while. I have been insanely busy lately. That's a great thing though! It's finally Christmas break, and I am officially 20 years old. I had an amazing birthday. I was surrounded by my family and closest friends. I am a very lucky girl. I'm beginning to fall in love again. I'm starting to love who I am; love this life I've been given, and love the amazing people around me. I definitely believe sometimes things have to fall apart so better things can fall together. I was in a very dark place a couple weeks ago. I was lost.
I think one big problem is that I was surrounding myself with the wrong people. People that were just as lost as I was. I was in a relationship, but I wasn't mysef. I didn't realize it at the time, but after some reflection, I noticed that I had slowly been losing myself along the way while I stayed in that relationship. I was trying to fit a mold that just wasn't me. I feel like I made the best choice for everyone in ending that relationship. I really wanted to salvage the friendship that was the foundation of the union, but it's become very apparent that's not possible at this time. I think he's trying to erase me from his life, instead of just appreciating what was, and moving on with what it is now.
Speaking of moving on, that's exactly what I'm doing. I'm trying to focus my attention on my writing, and my relationships with family and friends. This Christmas is going to be a great one, I can already feel it. I'm looking forward to the feeling of rebirth that Christmas and the New Year brings. I believe 2012 is going to be a good year for me. A lot of changes will take place, but they'll ultimately shape me into a better person. I'm truly blessed, and I'm thankful for this life I'm living.
So my Challenge for You: Take a look at your life, and appreciate all the beauty and blessings around you. And remember: We only get one shot at this whole life thing.
