So, the year is coming to an end. It' been a crazy ass year. I turned 19 this year, my cousin was killed, I graduated high school, fell in love for the first time, and started college. Some things good, some things bad, but it was another year nontheless. I met good people, lost good people. I was homeless, depressed, and lost. I was happy, ecstatic, and amazed. I got my first tattoo. I spent more time with my family.

2009 wasn't necessarily a good year in HAPPINESS, but it was a good year in LEARNING. I learned a lot about myself, about people in general, about life, and about God. My relationship with God has impacted my life greatly this year. God is something special to me. I wake up thanking God for life, and go to sleep thanking God for life.

What this blog is thoroughly trying to say is, no matter if this year was good or bad, use the experiences you have had to learn from and prosper against. Each year should teach you lessons that the year before hadn't held for you.

Too many times I think people use the coming of a new year to claim new ideas and new resolutions that aren't them at all. Sometimes people shouldn't do that. People should just keep working on who they are and who they want to become, not try to take on new tasks. Does that make sense?

That makes sense babe. I love this post and relate 100%. Ì love it! This year was the same way for me too. Homeless, bestfriend died, cousin go to jail and all on oprah. Very humbling year. All I can do is keep pushing.
