Final Trimester of 2011

Today is October 1st, 2011. As I reflect on the good times and bad times of the year, I can officially smile. Remember at the beginning of the year, when everyone was proclaiming that 2011 would be "their" year? Yeah, 10 months ago. It's funny. I've said that every year, except this one. I realized that a new month on the calendar isn't going to make 2011 mine. Only I can do that. Anyway, with that said, I've discovered that 2011 has kind of been "my year." I wouldn't say it was spectacular, but I've learned a lot about myself, others and a lot of great things have happened thus far. This year, so far, has been better than many of the past years in many ways:

  • PBK made one year [Yay!]
  • I turned 21
  • I've felt rejection
  • I got a job in my field of study [Education]
  • I've stepped more out of my little shell of solitude
  • I'm in the process of getting back into school
  • I became closer to some old acquaintances
  • I dropped many old anchors in my life
  • I've forgiven a 6-year grudge
  • I've apologized for things I've done to others
  • I've become more accepting of imperfection [my own & others']
  • I've learned to speak up for myself more
  • I've learned that it is okay to cry sometimes
  • I've learned to not care so much about what people say/think about me
  • I'm happier.
In 2011, I have learned to just let go of people and things holding me back in my life, but also to stop being so dependent on others for my own happiness. From the bottom of my heart, I hope that 2011 has been as great to you as it has to me so far. There are three more months left. I'm sure I'll cry more, laugh more and smile more. Enjoy October, November and December, everyone. I hope these final three months teaches me [and you] more things to prepare us for 2012.

Love, Peace & Phoenix
