A Goodbye Letter to 2012

A Goodbye Letter to 2012

Goodbye 2012! 

You, my fickle friend, are a year I would rather forget.  Although I appreciate all of the wonderful gifts you gave me, most came with a high price.  As a matter of fact, I spent most of your given time detached and disconnected; feeling as though I was just putting one step in front of the other, chugging along, while the world was whipping by me. You were a year filled with uncertainty, pain, hurt, and un-repairable damage. I don’t think your partner, 2013, will bring much change with it.  At least it won’t do it quickly enough.  So instead, I will have to learn from you.  Make changes. Grow. Become stronger.

Because of you, I will take each day as it comes.  I will accept a bad day for what it is and move on.  I will enjoy every chance I get to laugh and not wonder what will happen next or worry about what happened yesterday.  I will see people for who they are and not who I want them to be.  I will love those closest to me with all of my heart and be sure they know it.  I will hold on to my faith in humanity, but only offer a guarded trust to those who have hurt me.  Because of you, I will be different.  I am not sure yet if I will be a better person or not, but I know I will be different.  Only the future will tell if I should be grateful for you or hate you. Either way, you have a left a mark that I am sure will never be erased.

Sincerely,

Anne
