2012. When I look back on the past year it amazes me how much has happened. I graduated from college, I started my first job in the workforce, I took on financial responsibility that I never really thought was possible, I’ve been asked by my wonderful and amazing soon-to-be sister-in-law to be her Maid of Honor, I marked year numero tres in a wonderful relationship with a man I love, and I’ve grown more as an individual than ever before.
This past year has been one for the books without question. Its been full of so many emotions and blessings, not to say there hasn’t been bumps in the road along the way. I don’t think it would have been a memorable year without everything that has occurred. It’s all about what you learn these experiences though, right? Some things I learned over the past year:
+ pay the bill as soon as you get it, don’t delay the inevitable
+ don’t be fooled— dogs are great, vet bills are not
+ family is most important— more of a reassurance seeing as I already knew this
+ best friends are rare, but keep them close when you find them
+ also, no matter the distance between best friends, the good ones will always be there
+ champagne gives the worst hangovers
+ don’t be afraid to over-indulge
+ pay day is always the best day
+ it’s not always about want, instead, focus on need
+ work hard & play hard — balance is key
+ the right song can fix any problem, for a few minutes anyways
+ it’s okay to simply trust your instincts
+ wearing heels from 8am-6pm will never end well
+ anything is possible
Yes, I know — that is just scratching the surface but there was a lot to be learned this year! From graduating to starting a new life in a new city there are many things that I have picked up along the way. 2012 was good to me, to my family, and to my friends. I am blessed to have such amazing people in my life and I am looking forward to everything that 2013 has in store for me. I hope everyone had a wonderful night celebrating the countdown to a new year!
Have an amazing day and cheers to 2013!!
