12:17 am - 2007; in a nutshell.

So as this year comes to a close, here is my take on the past 12 month's. 

I learnt more about myself this year than I ever have at any other point in my life. I may say that every year but every year it seems to ring truer and truer. I learnt that you can't make yourself healthy just by thinking it will happen. You have to take action and actually make a concious effort to eat better and sleep longer. You can't make someone feel something they don't want to. No matter how much you try to push it. The worst possible things always end up to be doors that open to the best moments of your life. People who you never think will hurt you, hurt you. But, the one's who are worth it prove themselves to you in the times they are needed most. Your best friend can become your worst enemy over night. And that no matter how much you want it, thing's DON'T always go your way.

But, I also realized that I have more to offer than I ever thought was possible. I am stronger than I ever knew. I can overcome things I never thought possible before this year. Mono sucks. But, life goes on. Having your heart broken can feel the end of the world. But, then you'll meet someone who makes you realize how worthwhile you are again when you least expect it. Family support is worth more than anything money could buy. 

But, most of all, I learnt to not let the small things get me down. Life is too short to dwell on what can't be changed. Shit happens. Life can be miserable sometimes. But for every crappy moment there is an overwhelimgly amazing moment waiting around the corner to counteract it. The people you think will be in your life forever aren't always and the one's you never expected become huge parts in it. 

All in all 2007 was a learning year. But, I wouldnt change a minute - good or bad. Because in the end, I'm happier and healthier than ever before and that's a beautiful thing that took my whole life to happen.
