IMG_1898.JPGReflecting back on 2011, its hard to believe another year has already started. More than ever I notice that time is truly fleeting and too precious to waste. Although, the majority of my year succumbed to negativity and depression, I've discovered and learned so much about myself that I have to be grateful that 2011 even occurred. Most importantly I have begun to understand why I have been making myself so miserable. It all boils down to a severe lack of self esteem. I have been keeping the people I love at an arms length, including my own self. I've been carrying around a crippling fear of being rejected for so long, that I did not even realize that by not letting people in, I was causing myself more and more isolation. In effect, it was myself that was creating this world of rejection surrounding me because I was afraid of being abandoned by those I love. It has only recently come to my attention that I was doing this and now that I do understand that my actions were not serving my well-being, I am committed to make the necessary effort to let love in and in turn to love myself wholly and completely. For me, 2012 means the year in which I focus and nurture my emotional, physical, and creative needs. I wish you all the best in the coming year and may you love with all you hearts. Don't ever hold back.
