Dear 2010

Let's face year got off to a pretty rocky start. But looking at it as a whole, it hasn't been a bad year, or should i say, a bad 2 months. I've learned a lot, I've grown, I've met new people, I've done new things....all in all...not bad at all.

So here is a list of what I've learned so far:
- Life doesn't always work out the way we plan it..but when you make the best of what you've
got, life can be pretty awesome ;)
- some goodbye's are more painful than others
- I'm a lot stronger than i give myself credit for.....
- Tears aren't always a bad thing...sometimes they are crucial to the healing process
- i know a lot of amazing people who supported me more than could humanely be expected
of them in a time where i thought my world was crashing down around me
- Saying goodbye properly is important
- seeing a dead person is not a pleasant experience....ever...I'll be avoiding that in the future
- tell the people you love that you love them as often as's important
- Friends can be found in the most unlikely places
- sometimes it's better to cut your losses and move on
- don't be so scared of getting hurt that you don't let people into your most deepest of heart
places. You miss a lot of life experiences this way
- Best friends are the shit! #thatisall
- our capacity to love never ceases to amaze me
- it's ok to not be strong sometimes....that's what friends are for
- I have an incredible boss...and no, he doesn't read my blog, so I'm NOT trying to score
points here
- Sometimes dressing up pretty and getting a compliment can light up your life
- Learning to accept a heartfelt and honest compliment is a lesson everybody should learn
and apply
- surround yourself with the people that make you happy and excited about life
- Live passionately
- Most importantly i think I've learned that i have a pretty amazing life, with really awesome
friends and an even more incredible is good :)

I look forward to the rest of the year. The things I'm gonna do and the people I'm gonna meet. *lifts glass* so here's to you go and be fabulous!
