Happy New Year everyone!!! This post is definitely going to be late but at least I got it up, right? Anyways, I can honestly 2012 has been the worst and best year of my life. I've went through multiple struggles and triumphs this year. I'm still on my journey of figuring out who I am and creating the path of the person I want to be. I've lost friends and opened my eyes to the genuine ones. I've been dumped and now with an amazing friend who I can actually call my boyfriend. I've been (sometimes still am) extremely insecure and found good qualities that I love about myself. I've had a bad relationship with my family and now we are truly closer than ever. I always thought I was "fat" and I decided to work my ass of, pun intended, and lost 20 pounds. I never tried new things because I was afraid of failure and I entered the 2012 Miss Teen Pageant and won 3rd place. I never thought I was smart but got into my first choice University. I even moved out of my house to a new state. Lastly, I pushed God so far out of my life and now I am starting to have faith again.
I think it is safe to say that this is happiest I've been in a long time, especially since my depression. I can't believe I have gotten this far and life but I definitely did not get through this alone. My best friends, family, the boy, my school have all contributed to my new found joy! I'm so grateful to finally be genuinely happy because I can tell you there have definitely been moments when I forgot what it felt like. I'm so thankful for the experiences I've endured even the ones I thought I wouldn't make it through. I want to do a special post with no words and of just my favorite pictures from 2012. Hopefully you guys are okay with that.
P.S. I'm back at school now! I'm so excited. But I will have to start planning my post schedule. I'm thinking every Monday, Wedensday, Friday, and Sunday. As soon as I figure everything out, I will let you know :)
