I've been thinking lately about how much I've changed. On New Years Eve I sat in front of my tv watching some old home videos from 1994 of me opening presents on Christmas Day when my mom and dad were still together. I cried, while wondering how my life would have been different if they were still together, and in all honesty I really didn't care. I'm ecstatic with the way things turned out. I'm so thankful for everything I've gone through good and bad. It has made me who I am and it is why things are they way they are now, and I couldn't ask for better.

Most people think the new year is about setting new goals to reach by next year, but its also about taking what we've learned this past year and applying it to this upcoming year. Here are some things i have learned this year.

I've learned:- Just because two people argue,it doesn't mean they don't love each other. Just because they don't argue, doesn't mean they do love each other

- We don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

- No matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

- True friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. The same goes for true love.
- You can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

- That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

- You should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

- You can keep going long after you think you can't.

- We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

- Either you control your attitude or it controls you.

- Money is a lousy way of keeping score.

- My bestfriend and I can do anything, or nothing at all and have the best time.

- Sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

- Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

- It isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

- No matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

- Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

-Two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different.

- Your life can be changed in a matter of minutes by people who don't even know you.


- When you think you have no more to give, then a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

Still thinking on New Years resolutions. Happy 2009 everyone!
