The new year is hard to post about. To string words together in such a way that creates something that expresses my anticipation for what is to come in 2012 and to fill each blank space with my pondering about what I had accomplished in 2011 is tricky.
It is refreshing to see the numbers 2-0-1-2 printed on our new calendar. 2-0-1-1 was stale, like old bread. It feels like a fresh, sweet breeze has blown away all the mistakes I made last year and replaced it with a confident soul and a new wonder of what is to come.
"Becoming more confident.' Is my answer if anyone asks what was my highest achievement last year.
In the year 2010, I was not a confident person. On the outside I appeared so, but on the inside I felt ugly, insignificant and small. There would be nights when I would cry myself to sleep over my appearance, which I thought was ugly. In the 2011 however, I grew up I. I began to realise over time that I was not the ugly orgor I had made myself out to be. I was unique and beautiful. Building self confidence was an amazing step forward for me. I felt different.
That is my highest achievement for last year.
I am all excitement and anticipation for 2012! It is like walking on a straight path and then suddenly there is a curve, "what is around that corner?" is the question I am asking myself.
May God continue to bless you in 2012, even if the blessings are in disguise!
