You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way and the only way...they don't exist. by Fredrich Neitzche
The last day of 2011. I started a new blog the first month of the last two years. I don’t think I’ll be doing that in 2012. At least not right away. I have other projects I want/need to focus on. This year has been nothing less than life changing. I read (at least 50 books, I didn’t really keep track) heard great music (Take Care, Section .80, Camp, The Soul Tape, Ghost Lady, The Marathon Continues, Sideline Story, Discovery, Thursday, Echoes of Silence, Death Comes In 3’s, Watch the Throne, just to name a few) met some new people, lost some people, had my heart broken, then shattered. I’ve grown so much. Certain people and experiences have played a huge part in that and I’m forever grateful to them. I’ve been on a self-discovery mission lately and it’s one that’ll continue for the rest of my life. I never want to stop growing, changing, becoming a better person. If you took the time to read anything that I’ve posted on here, I thank you. It means alot that my words might have an impact on someone else. These are my thoughts and feelings in the best way I know how to express them. It’s so hard letting go, of this blog, of people (one in particular), of myself. Hopefully it won’t all be for naught and the upcoming year is everything I imagine.
I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shines ain’t always gonna be gold. I’ll be fine once I get it, I’ll be good.
Dear Irreplaceable Girl,
You are in just the right place in your life right now, doing just what needs to be done at this time. You are learning just what you need to be learning at this time. There’s a plan for your life and even if you are in the middle of where you were and where you are headed. Everything is going to be ok. You can do difficult things.
You are surrounded by the right people at this time, even if you feel rather alone. Things are working out exactly as they are meant to work out, though you may not see what is happening behind the scenes. You are becoming exactly who you are meant to become, even if you feel like you are not really becoming anything or anyone at all right now.
Please, sweet beautiful friend…during this magical time, simply let yourself be. Let your life be. Let go of expectations. Let go of your attachment to specific outcomes. Notice little miracles. Understand that you belong here. There is a place for you.
You belong. You are loved. Everything is going to work out beautifully.
You are cherished, thought-out, thought-of and watched out for.
You have not been forgotten. Not now, not ever.
Everything is going to be ok. Please rest in that truth.
You matter, so very very very much.

con·tent·ment [kuhn-tent-muhnt] noun: the state of being contented; satisfaction; ease of mind.
I will be capable of loving, regardless of whether I am loved in return,
Of giving, even when I have nothing,
Of working happily, even in the midst of difficulties,
Of holding out my hand, even when utterly alone and abandoned,
Of drying my tears, even while I weep,
Of believing, even when no one believes in me.
