I joined WordPress a year ago, really? Time sure does fly! Thanks again to my friend Courtney who encouraged me to join. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this community! Thank you once again, guys and dolls, for reading my blog! Thank you for the support you have shown me and thank you for your wisdom, advice, new perspectives, friendship, and love…offered both on my blog and within reading yours as well!

A lot has changed in a year! Some bad things have happened, but through all of that, I have grown stronger as a person, as a Christian, as a friend, and so on. I have also learned who my real friends are and together, we have seen one another through the hard times. Many good things have happened as well and those things have served to keep me humble, optimistic even in the darkest of times, and reminding me of how very blessed I am.

A life devoid of the things that brings one joy isn’t truly living, it’s merely existing. Never deny oneself joy, happiness, or peace. Also never depend on another to give you those things. To have joy with others is a plus and an amazing thing, but one needs to have that within themselves first and always.

Life really is what one makes of it, the choice of what yours will become is up to you. Circumstances don’t define us, what we do, and how we get through them does. I choose to overcome the dark times, shine a light and make it through. I choose to hold my head up high and work for the good things in life, not just daydream about them. I refuse to let success make me arrogant. While I have earned things in life, I choose not flaunt them. I instead hope to encourage others and show them how to achieve their goals as well. I am so far from perfect, but I do the best with what I have, with who I am, and continue to work on becoming a better person than I was the day before. I hope my blog reflects even a glimmer of who I am and that it inspires even one of you, as what many of you have had to say continues to inspire me. Thank you for a great year and here’s to another amazing one ahead!
