This year has taught me a lot. I had really close relationships end and learned the meaning of true friendship. It was a struggle and I don't wish this experience or the pain on anyone but I know that Heavenly Father has truly helped me through it. I became a lot closer to my wonderful siblings through it all and I have felt God's love for me. I know that He knows who I am and is there for me whenever I need him to. I have felt the comfort from the Spirit and know that if those relationships hadn't ended I would not be where I am. I'm not where I pictured I would be in my life, but I am learning to love every day. Let go of past pains and move forward.
In the words of Rascal Flatt,
"I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself
I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I'm moving on"
I look forward to 2014 and hopeful all that it can have in store! Here's some pics of the good times of 2013!
