New Year's Eve and Day were fairly quiet at my house, just family and a few board games. It was very low key, just the way I like it. It was the first New Year's in a long time that I didn't cry and/or feel miserable and depressed. I was happy and hopeful and excited for the new year, the way I should be feeling. With my track record, I know that my moods can change in a heartbeat for no apparent reason. So for now I'm enjoying the reprieve of
negativity that's usually present and hoping it lasts.
For me, 2011 was all about growth. After my seven-year relationship ended, it's like I didn't know who I was aside from one-half of a whole. This past year was full of lots of reflection and lots of praying. It was hard with plenty of good days and plenty of bad days. And I mean there were some really bad days in there. I made a lot of personal revelations in regards to my heath both physical and mental, my depression, and my weight loss that I'm hopeful will bring forth a lot of positive changes in 2012. I'm proud of the person that's emerged on the other side, proud of the person I grew into, and proud of the person I'm bringing over into the new year.
