I have found that which each coming year, time seems to pass a little bit faster, and I grow a little bit more paranoid that my time is nearing its expiration. A new year is on the rise and I for some reason don't feel as optimistic as I did one year ago. Maybe I've finally passed the "head in the clouds" stage and am finally more aware of the precautions which I didn't know about a year ago.
It's incredible how much one could grow, learn and prosper in a mere 360 days. Reflecting back on 2010, it was overall a really great year. I've made some really great friends, moved into a house, I was in a great band, played some really fun shows in New York, traveled to Miami and Chicago, got through my first year as a newlywed, I reconnected with some old friends, and I got to see my family and close friends more than i had ever seen them in the past couple of years! It also was a year full of many challenges and experiences, realizations which although sucked to go through at the time, ended up becoming really valuable life long lessons. Experiencing failure, heartache, and disappointment, has taught me to persevere, to count my blessings, and to just kinda take things as they come.
All in all, it's been another year, and another thousand lessons learned. With each year comes a clean slate and a brand new you. I'm ready to start fresh, and welcome 2011 taking all of last year's knowledge that I've absorbed and applying it to a new, stronger, wiser, and capable me.
Happy New Year everyone! <3
