This year has had its ups and downs
 but I honesty wouldn't have changed a thing! 
I grew so much as a person...
I felt myself healing from past wounds, 
becoming braver and more independent.
 Throughout this year I have struggled to find who I am- 
but each day I find myself more and more happy
 with the young woman I am.
 Sure, I wish a few things had gone differently this year, 
but I am determined to learn and grow from every mistake and blunder. 
My life is wonderful! 
I have so many things to be thankful for in 2008 
and so many things to look forward to in 2009!

I wish you all a most wonderful
 and magical New Year!
