2013…. What can I say…. this year has brought many ups and many downs but I will say this year I learned a lot about myself in every way, shape, and form. I realized in life the most important thing is to focus on your happiness and joy…. When you do that the world becomes a better place for you, and the people around you. I learned family and friendships are the most important aspects of life without either one you aren’t really living. I think most importantly, I learned that life has a way of throwing you curve balls and it’s up to you to shape and mold those curve balls into what you want them to be. You have to make yourself happy at all costs. I’ve learned what it is to truly love wholeheartedly and to be loved and I am forever grateful for that. I’ve learned some things no matter how hard you want them to work won’t… but it’s all a part of the plan God has for you, that you must keep trusting in Him because He knows what’s best. Lastly, 2013 has taught me the value of truly living, appreciating life and appreciating the people God puts in your life. Thank you 2013 for all the lessons you have taught me, some hard and some easy. I look forward to another year, of health, wealth (who doesn’t want lots of that lol) and tons of happiness.
