New Year

I remember putting up a series of blogs this time last year about 2012. Looking and where I am now, I  can say that 2012 was one of the hardest years to date. I remember that my mantra was  " you can't change the past, but you can shape your future." I  didn't fully understand what that meant until now.  I am at a crossroads in my life and I'm lucky that the one thing  I know for sure is that I have my God and my friends.

2013 is a mystery, but I  learned  a lot in 2012. First, I learned that I have willpower that I never knew existed. I learned I can survive completely alone and that being alone isn't so bad.

I remember being younger and wanting certain experiences just so I could be wiser.  Back then, it was like I was listening to the song, and now I fully understand the lyrics. 2012 made me realize that  people will always talk, and even if you don't understand the language, it still hurts.  I began to accept the fact that some people are content making your life miserable, but others are content making it good as well. I learned the hard way that all you need is your inner circle; everyone else is just there for the gossip.

I was given experiences that others would crave for.  I made sure to enjoy myself. I found joy in my friendships and knowing that my future is bright.  I had life defining experiences and conquered my fears.  I started to become the person who I wanted to be.

People make mistakes. I always understood that I wasn't perfect, but in 2012, I faced the parts that made me bad. I am just now learning how to handle them, and I am also learning what it means to grow as a person. I believe that everything in life happens for a reason and I would be foolish if I didn't take the good and bad from this year.

More than any class that I took, above all lessons, I began to fully understand what Florkime means: Never give up.

See you in 2013
