I need to update my journals more often!
Where has this year gone?
This year, I became an 'aunt' to one of the most adorable little girls I have ever seen! This year - in a couple weeks to be exact - my uncle is getting married. This year, I witnessed the passing of my childhood pet, who meant the world to me. This year, I opened my heart and welcomed a new pet into my home and my life, which has tested me in more ways than I can imagine. This year, numerous family members and friends have passed away. And while death saddens me, I know that I cannot let it get the better of me.
A lot of my opinions and views on life have changed this past year. I can't say if these changes are for better or worse; obviously, I'd like to think they are for the better.
I have made so many new friends and strengthened the bonds with those friends I've known for years. I've opened my eyes to what matters in life. I've learned what I'm capable of, and what I need to do to be successful.
Overall, I think this year has gone by pretty well.
Happy Holidays to every single one of you!!
