I learnt that the best way to heal is to give, the best way to smile is to make someone smile and the best way to appreciate life is to see what others lack.
I learnt to travel, to experience different culture, food, weather, sights and sounds.
And with that I learnt that nothing comes close to the feeling of being home.
I learnt what it's like to be loved so deeply and yet not find it within you to return that love.
I learnt that it is true indeed, that one cannot love another until one loves thyself.
I learnt to walk away while I can and that closing an eye to petty annoying things can lead to a massive pain in the ass. (Not literally)
I learnt that (most) people are just out to serve their purpose, fulfill their needs, satisfy their desires, feed their souls and quench their thirst. Without giving a damn about the rest of the world.
I learnt that there are still angels that exist. An angel I had for ten years and counting.
I learnt that tragedy brings people closer, and throws them apart all at the same time.
But most of all, I learnt that forgiveness isn't easy at all, but it is liberating and will set you free.
Here's to another year, may it be yet another a roller coaster ride!
A look back...
A year ago... I was afraid of getting old (still am!)
In 2010... I laughed at random shit (still do!).
In 2009... I hated my job (in contrary to that, I freakin' love my job now!)
In 2008... I got through a rough year like a champ. (wow, I almost forgot that)
In 2007... I was a depressed young fool. Lol.
