Farewell 2006

Its the morning of New Years Eve, the much awaited end to 2006. And of course, I am feeling reflective of this past year. Its safe to say that this wasn't one of my best years. While I strove to branch out of my comfort zone, I also succumbed to a darker side of myself.

The highlights were:

- Going to Maui with my best friend

- Seeing two of my very good friends marry the men that they love.

-Having a successful working year

-Watching my nephews grow, talk, walk, run, and laugh with abandon.

-Being healthy

-Continuing to have strong relationships with my friends.

-Traveling by myself for the first time.


The darker side:

-Becoming more closeted in my home.

-Stupidly having expectations in a person, only to prove that having expectations is to only letting yourself down.

-My parents divorce being final the day after my birthday.

-Gaining weight because I am unhappy with myself

-Realizing that I am in some form suffering from depression.

-Allowing myself to become heavier and giving in to my depression.

-Not believing in myself.

-Letting my self doubt rule me.



But thankfully its a new year tomorrow and I can beat me.

I think we may have. But I have high hopes for 2007.
