It’s the last Friday of the year, darling! How exciting is that? Unfortunately for me, I’ll probably spend it cuddling on my couch with a huge warm blanket and a Siamese cat on my lap since I’m still feeling a little bit under the weather, but hey, there’s nothing better than a huge warm blanket and a Siamese cat on your lap when it’s so cold outside (add a delicious cup of Chocolate Abuelita to that picture)!
With 2012 coming to its end, my little hamster has been running inside its wheel and pondering about how much I learned this past year. 2012 was definitely a tough, tough year for me, but on the bright side? I discovered I’m stronger and smarter and that I need more than two hands to count all my blessings.
So what did I learn this year?
- Never regret anything! If you put all your heart in it and you were 100% sure that you were doing the right thing and you did it true to your beliefs, then go for it!
- Get rid of the negative people in your life. This year I innocently realized that yes, there is such thing as “bad” people in this world, people who will go out of their way to pretend to be your friend and take advantage of you and people who are so full of envy that will purposely harm you (last one didn’t happen to me directly, thank God!). Yes, I was naive, but I’d rather be known as the kind, generous, happy girl than the bitch who spits poison and treats people like crap.
- And last but not least, that things DO happen for a reason. I guess you have to experience it yourself to understand that there’s always light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to believe. After a painful year, I realized I have an AMAZING support system, I found a job that I’m excited to go to every day, and a man that makes me smile constantly.
My resolutions? To give myself some space for my personal projects (sorry, readers!), get rid of my debts and actually try to stick to a healthier lifestyle of more yoga and Pilates and water and less diet coke and late nights.
So smile and be happy, there’s no reason not to! ♥
