The year started off very interesting and somewhat heartbreaking. Life changes are never easy. This time last year, my mind was in a different place. I was sad. I was upset. I was confused. I was hurt. I felt like a failure. I felt I didn't have control over my life and my thoughts. The things I wanted to do. The places I wanted to go. Always asking myself why was I in the place I was. Despite all the achievements and strides I had done in years before, it didn't take away the feeling of loss.
What a difference 365 days can make.
Despite the passing of my grandfather in June, this year I learned that every moment is new and I can make changes in how I think and perceive life at a moment's notice. I don't need to wait until the next day, the beginning of the week or month, or even the year. I can make changes now.
So, in 2013, I decided not to dwell on the wishes, hopes and dreams lost, but to be happy about how I can wish, hope and dream again. I'm in this moment of time. I have this moment.
This is the moment I make my life happen.
