I cannot believe that 2010 has come to an end so fast. Since I’ve started blogging, I’ve said this every single year, without fail. 2010 was different though. It was more emotional for me, saying goodbye to 2010 because in so many ways, 2010 was the beginning of what I felt was part 2 of my life.
I think that overall, 2010 has been very good to me. Not because it was a walk in the park, because it hasn’t been. There have been MANY difficult times for me this year, times when I’ve just wanted to curl up into a ball, close my curtains and cry for a week because I felt so alone, but something I realized in 2010 is that a good year is not always characterized by how much money you make that year or how much you laugh. It’s by how much you grow.
I’ve met some incredible people and I’ve realized how strong my relationship is with the old ones. I’ve learnt to ENJOY my education and I don’t see it as a burden anymore. I’ve learnt to appreciate my family more and realize just how much they are a part of me and I a part of them. I’ve learnt that I can survive on my own and that housework isn’t TOO bad after all. I discovered a new found joy in cooking. I fell in love with Ben, am still in love with him and want to be in love with him for many years to come.
But most of all, I think that 2010 was the year that I grew as a person. That my thoughts, opinions, principles and goals took a proper shape. That I found who I was and who I wanted to become.
2010 wasn’t perfect but I’ve learnt to see perfection in imperfection. With the way 2010 has been, I can only see 2011 being even better. To mummy, daddy, grandpa, granny, Bryan, Ben, Riam, Quin, Ling, Manda, M, Kid, Kat, Su Fern, Zam, Debra, Mellie, Dave, Aaron, Keith, aunty Say Yan, aunty Elaine and everyone who was a part of my life this year, thank you, for being a part of my journey in 2010. Here’s to 2011!
