2011, you were a hard teacher, I’ll tell you that. I’d say you were the year I felt the most of everything I ever have had to feel: the most regret, the most joy, the most sadness, the most pride. If there’s a year I’ll look back on that changed and taught me the most it will be you.
Who would have thought partings would be so painful? How could I have known how deep friendships could go? And yet when I think about it, everything seems to have come full circle and more, like endless circles around a wheel.
To break the cycle it’s me who needs to change. To whine less – like what I’m doing now, to empathize less, and to rely less on others to be happy.
2012, I don’t think you’ll be the end of the world, but I hope you’ll be a good beginning for me.
