Another year has gone by, and here I am sitting in my hotel room in L.A as I type this out. I have to say this year was quite the year. I've struggled, conquered, travelled, and made some spontaneous decisions that have only led me to blessings in disguise. This year was full of surprises, so much love, and a whole lot of faith. I've also met some of the most amazing people I have in my life this year. Although some friendships and relationships I have with people have changed over the course of this year, the rest have simply been wonderful.
From the Sharing Hope Benefit Concert, to my Asia trip, to my new job, and now L.A.. I can only say this: I have the greatest support system ever, and every one of these events has truly been a blessing. These experiences and trips have taught me a whole lot about myself, others, and my relationship with God. I'm still seeking for some answers, but I'm moving onto the next year with even more faith, hope, and trust in Him.
I can't say I'm ending this year with certainty of what's in store for me next.. so I'm going to be completely honest and say I don't know what next year will hold for me. I thought I did, but some things are just way beyond my control. It's a scary thing, and I'm slowly learning to be okay with that. I think God is trying to tell me that it's alright for me to let go, and trust Him to lead me in the right direction. Detours and diversions included.
There's so much I left in the back burner for a little while.. just so I don't have to deal with it. My heart and mind say different things.. and I need time to figure that out. It's definitely been a struggle. But with all that being said, I'm excited for the new year. New adventures, new travels, and to kickstart the year, I'll be travelling! Destinations will be revealed in future posts ;) Well, I hope everyone will have a fabulous and blessed New Year's! May the year ahead be one of love, happiness, and great joy for you. Cheers to 2012 - New beginnings, new hopes, and bigger dreams. XO
