Dear 2010,

How quickly and slowly at once this year has gone by! I’m excited to say goodbye to you, and hello to love in my life in 2011. Goodbye to culture shock, Casey, any tolerance for bad communication skills, goodbye to full time at ATX! Hello to love, love, love! The only law this worls needs, what Jesus actually said was the single most important law to follow. It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? If everyone did everything with love in their heart, this world would be perfect. I’m nowhere near perfect, but Dear God I will continue the fight to make this place just a little better.

I learned a lot from you, 2010.. I’ve learned that no matter what ideas we have, they are modified to the rules and regulations of this world if you want them to be successful. No matter what expectation I have, or what ideas I wish to bring to life, it must always be modified accordingly. Things this year seemed to take longer, and I’m still learning to accept that, and not stress when it doesn’t go just as it happened in my dreams. Age is just a number, I’ve realized..I spent so much of my time “getting ahead”, only to feel like I sunk into a hole of some sort, but it is what it is- my past, and I move along, look ahead. I’m lucky enough to know what I want, and to continuously have the drive to go for it. It wasn’t a waste, because I learned a lot: that I’m very forgiving, I go crazy if I stay still for too long, that the way one uses words is important, but much more so are our actions, and finally, I’ve learned that one cannot rationalize how they feel. 2010, you brought me Amie, and I am so thankful for this precious dog! She is sweet and considerate by her very own nature. You taught me that this crazy world still produces some beautiful, loving souls. I am not alone. And then you have surprised me, much sooner than I thought life would, with people that inspire me again.
