Hello 2013!

I can't say I'm sad to see 2012 is over.  I'm actually quite pleased that it's finally gone.  I'm anxious to begin my projects, start working towards some goals I've made for this new year.  I'm ready to leave all of my mistakes, missteps, bad decisions, horrible dates, fair weather friends and all of the unnecessary drama that follow them, behind me.  I learned some very tough lessons in 2012, in love, in life and in general.  Over the Christmas holidays, I made amends with someone that meant the world to me.  I even blogged about it here: http://yvonne-writingmylifeaway.blogspot.com/2012/12/a-christmas-miracle.html We had not spoken in two years.   What I thought was a step towards mending our relationship and renewing our friendship, blew up in my face in the blink of an eye.  Sometimes, you just have to walk away.  And that's what I've done.  No regrets, I'm glad I got to finally tell him everything that had been eating me up for so long.  I'm glad he knows exactly how I felt when we had our falling out and how I feel now.  I made my peace with him.  Our story is over.  While I am saddened about this, more than words can ever convey, I accept it.  I know that in a few days, I'll be fine.  I know that my heart will be whole again, it's just going to be a little bruised for a little while.  But I'll be fine.  2013 will be all about me.  All about making me happy, all about doing what I love to do, and enjoying my life, in ways I've never experienced before.  I am determined to make myself happy with myself.  I am determined to learn to love myself.  I am determined not to run at the first sign of trouble, or obstacle.  I will confront my inner battles, and I will beat them.

My wish for all of you, is to do the same. Live your life, laugh a lot, hug your loved ones, don't be so serious all the time, let go of anger, and enjoy the journey that 2013 has in store for you.

Happy New Year my friends!

I'm sorry it didn't work out with your friend. Sometimes people just aren't what we hope for. I'm sorry you are hurt and I do hope this new year will be a good one for you. It is good to learn to love yourself - it is something we all need to do to get through life. Happy New Year to you and all your family!

Slyde- Indeed. I'll always remember them fondly, except when I'm thinking of poking them in the eyes. Kidding. Not really. Happy 2013! Make it grand!
