and a long one. (that’s what she said.)
this year i decided to stick up for myself and it felt good. taking care of someone who is deep into their own addiction can make you feel like there’s an anchor around your neck, an anchor that was decidedly voluntary. in January, I decided to take that mother effer off and it was perhaps, one of the greatest choices I could have made with my life.
I’m not going to sit here and paint a beautiful picture, I did run into some tough financial and personal hardships this year, but I DID get to contribute to a great cause and prove to myself that I could do anything I set my mind to.
The number one thing that kept me going this year was amazing friends. I have an amazing, loving, support system of friends who have all blown me away with their generosity and kindness.
I am very happy to report though, that I know myself better now. I might even have what some people call good self-esteem…. go fricken’ figure. I really love the woman that I am becoming :)
i used to be a girl who thought being in a relationship with a boy was EVERYTHING, and now i love nothing more than my quiet time alone and the wonderful RELATIONSHIPS that i have with my family and friends.
the glass really is half-full.
2012, bring it B.
