2012 has been quite year for me and my family. There have been good times and bad times which have brought many lessons that I plan to take with me into 2013. I have learned that some friendships run their course and no amount of holding on can change that; and that’s alright. You take the lessons that friendship taught you and move forward. I have learned that you can’t choose your family but you can choose how you choose to let your family affect your life. I am all about positivity and if you are not on my page then I have to steer clear. It doesn’t mean I don’t love you, it just means that I love my peace and my piece of mind more. One very important lesson I learned in 2012 is that I have to take time to take care of me and that doing so is not being selfish. If I don’t take care of myself, how can I take care of others? I learned that getting fired is not the end of the world although it felt like it at the time. I learned to seek the lesson in situations that I would normally perceive as bad and use them as I move onward and upward.
I am really looking forward to 2013. I will get to watch another one of my little cousins get married and I will have the honor of singing at the wedding. I am really looking forward to that. I will be having my own wedding in 2013 as well and I am looking forward to sharing that with the love of my life. I plan to nurture my familial and friendly relationships. I appreciate all of the people that are or have been a part of my life and I enjoy being able to let them know that. I plan to continue working toward losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle. Most importantly, I plan to spend 2013 doing my very best to make every single day that I am blessed to see even more AMAZING than the day before.
