Thank You 2011

17 Jan

At the end of 2011, many people wrote and talked about the wonderful things that the past year had brought them. Today, I would like to do the same.

Thank You 2011 for:

Making one of my dreams come true.

Introducing me to a simpler way of life.

Clearing out and getting rid of many unnecessary elements in my life (clothes, possessions, people, ideas, habits).

Teaching me to listen to myself, rather than seeking other people’s opinions.

Giving me the courage to be more open, more honest and more natural.

Showing me that the life we dream of is a) never the way it is in our dreams, b) not necessarily the best life for us.

Showing me that we are the creators of our own happiness.

Making me lost, confused, doubtful and frustrated – I learnt a lot about myself through these emotions.

Helping me take a small, yet huge, step to making peace with my past and healing wounded relationships.

Showing me that we have to make the most of what we have, even if it’s not what we wanted to have.

Making me realise that what I thought was of colossal importance actually means very little in the grand scheme of things.

Showing me that love is the only thing that’s real.

      Thank you. The past year has had both its beautiful and difficult moments, but I chose to focus this post on the best of what the year brought 🙂
