Out of nowhere, life comes out and surprises you right when you need it. Just when I was ready to miserably wrap up 2012, I received the most amazing of blessings. To be able to go back to London and Europe, places where I had the best summer of my life. Places where I met great people, had amazing adventures, saw beautiful different cultures but most importantly, the places where I fell in love. I can’t believe how lucky I am. To be in Europe again, this time with my beautiful best friend. I can’t wait to show her around these places and share these experiences with her.
Speaking of love, 2012 has taught me the most valuable of lessons when it comes to love - selflessness. This same time last year I told myself that I’d give my all this year to love and never look back. And I thought that meant to fight for what you want and who you love unconditionally. But as the year passed, I learnt that the one true element of love is selflessness. To look in the eyes of the one you love and do whatever it takes to make them happy, even if it’s not ideal because at the end of the day if they’re happy, that’s all that matters.
No matter what happens in the next year, my heart will always be with you. At 23 years old I’m confident enough to say that I’ve found the love of my life, someone I’d want to be with forever, even if not for now. Thank you for loving me, and making me feel beautiful every day of my life, even if you aren’t here with me. I love you. Here’s to someday. x
Out of nowhere too, my job became something I’ve grown to love. To have something that is completely yours to work on, to earn, to be responsible for and to flourish in. And at the end of the day to have people recognize and acknowledge the hard work, it means everything to me.
Not to mention, my family, my friends. I can’t even begin to describe how blessed I feel each and every day to have such pillars of strength in my life. People I look up to, people who understand me and are with me every step of the way. I thank God every day for these angels. Absolute angels.
So 2012, you’ve been a year of ups and downs. And though I find the hype of stepping into a new year a tad overrated, I hope these blessings I’ve received will always stay with me in the next year. xoxo
