So i wont lie. this past year was quite a trouble. but i cant say that i would have changed it in any way. i learned so many things this past year. grew up and gave me different outlooks on life.
there were lots of struggles at home. but somehow we always managed to pull through. i remember the day when we left for a day and came back to a door full of everyday useful things that we as a family were running out of. who could possible do this? why? the love shown was beyond comprehension. and of course that was not the end to it all. i was able to go to girls camp, me my mom and sister which we were planning on not going to. the same people helping my family. i am so grateful to the women and everyone else who supported my family in any way possible. there is no way i can repay them for the things they did, at least for now. and i hope when i grow up i can lighten someone's burden just the way they did.
This time for me and the rest of my family has been nothing but a humbling experience. we constantly think that we need everything now now now! and we need to have the best of the best, dine out, have your electronics. but when your in the hustle and bustle of it all you forget to realize the things that matter most. like spending time with family, listning, helping, caring, and loving. it has in every way opened my eyes to things that i before closed my eyes to. im learning and im trying to take what i am given and appreciate it. its hard but in the end it will be worth it.
This year had its struggles but it had its moments of laughter and smiles. heartfelt moments and memories that will last me a life time. my last year of girls camp and efy. going up to SOAR and meeting some of the most amazing girls on the face of the earth. my "first real" boyfriend, ALL of summer, disneyland trips, beach trips, meeting new friend like rachel, cynthia, treana and a ton more. moments spent with family. completing my young womens personal progress. youth committee finally applying to college and getting accepted.
I will never forget this past year. ive been humbled. ive learned. ive grown. ive had my heart broken. Ive loved. Ive cried. Ive laughed and ive smiled.
And now... this is my year. 2010. time to graduate. time to turn 18 and be an adult. time to get a job. time to move out. time to live on my own. time to improve. time to be better. time to blog more! lol. time to head off to college. time to accomplish my dreams. time to go out there and make every moment count. time to make it the best year ever!
I guess what ive learned most is learn from every experience. Be greatful for what you do have. cherish family and friends. Never give up because life keeps on going.
this is my year!
....im just saying....
