You were the year I was looking for and I am ever more grateful to you.
You taught me to appreciate those closet to me and to continually count my blessings. On the flip side, I need to keep reminding myself to be mentally strong and more importunely, to not let people dictate how I feel.
On top of that, I am happy I managed to achieve a couple of 2013 resolutions, including getting a job and going beyond washing dishes and boiling water in the kitchen.
While I don't believe in making new Year resolutions, my goal for 2014 is to be unflappable. Fingers crossed.
