2012: The Year of Extreme

2012 was a year of extremes for me.

I either had huge successes or huge fails.

I had major triumphs, but then extreme disappointments.

I met wonderful people, then discovered the ugliness of humanity.

I have learned that people will like you just as long as you give them exactly what they want, and once you don’t, you become the token scapegoat.

I have met numerous people, and yet felt more alone this year than ever.

I have never been emotionally happier, but I’ve never been so heartbroken.

I suppose I’m not writing this with the best mindset, but there were good and bad things about 2012.  It’s important to have this to balance life, of course.  But it doesn’t make it any less trying.

But if there is anything I have learned about myself in 2012, I’ve learned that I can quickly grow a thick skin, I can put up walls where needed, and I can overcome the toughest of trials.

2013 will be a year of transition for me.  There will be lots of changes in my life, my job, my friends, and my family.  Some of it will be heartbreaking, but some of it will be wonderful.  I look forward to seeing what 2013 will bring, and I’m ready for anything.

For those of you reading, I wish you all a wonderful new year and I hope 2013 brings you everything you hope it will.
