Loved this blog, especially since I know with the end of the year, a lot of people I know and me included will look back on some parts of the year and some of the choices we have made and wish that we hadn’t made them. We will wish that we could go back and change the decisions, maybe even take a completely different path in life.

 

But in the here and now is the ‘me’ that was shaped by everything that I have been through this year. Would I be the same ‘me’ had I not fought the monsters in my closet? Had I not confronted my fears? Had I not lost out in some relationships? Lost a bit more faith because of the trash that people leave behind? And gained some more faith in myself for my ability to get through those days?

I went through that journey in different places in different countries. I achieved some of my dreams, ticked off some of the items on my bucket list. When life knocked me down on my knees, I took the opportunity to pray. I gained as much as I lost or maybe more, after all I am still standing at the end of the year, looking back and thinking that I had a good run.
