I can honestly say that I do not need someone to determine my happiness and on those rough days, I dig deep and remember good moments or things that make me laugh… when I ask my dad to sing a song that I love (mostly the stupid ones) and wait in anticipation that he’ll start singing it, my brothers stupid jokes, or simply write an email to my mum and stepmum and let them know what’s going on.
I love that I don’t need a man or a ‘thing’ to fill a void… I’m content being alone and even though sometimes I’m lonely I now know things happen for a reason and even if they don’t make sense now, they will eventually. 🙂
Wonder what 2014 will bring… 2013 has been difficult but even more fantastic than ever expected.
I don’t want to jinx things but I hope for new and exciting adventures of love, travel and memories.
And focus on working out (ie: lifting heavy objects and eating clean… Bit hard to do in the Country of good wine, macaroons and baguettes but I’ll figure it out.
Happy New Year and hope you have a wonderful 2014!!
