Today wraps up 2008, another year, another calendar to burn and a new one to buy. In retrospect, I think I’d name 2008 as the year of the chocolate, if my term applies. To me, this year is like me happily eating tons and tons of chocolate but only to have the most terrible migraine after.
2008 was a tough year for me. My character took a really bad beating from the events that had happened this year, and if I could remember properly, I had felt the most pain this year than any other year I could ever remember. It was a case of a fatal migraine, one more ounce and I probably would be recorded as the first ever dead casualty from chocolate overdose.
It was one blow after the other, the first half of the year left my eyes shrunken time and again for different, sometimes the same, causes that has left me dehydrated for a very long time, my peanut size brain reduced to the size of a mustard seed because of cellular dehydration. Disappointments and heartaches came one after the other and I started to wonder if I possibly had a birthmark on my butt that I haven’t seen before, because really, I could not explain why everything did not fall for me.
But then after some time, things started to change, and I was lucky because even when my character was beat up, all the blows only made me stronger, and wiser, I am very thankful for that. There came the point where all the PEA and endorphins from the chocolates I have consumed started to work its magic after the horrible migraine had fried my brain. I started to see the purpose of the troubles, and I began seeing how good I have come out of the strife.
I became a very happy, productive, and mature person this year, partly because of all the missess I have had, and partly because of all the love and wisdom I have gained from them all and those given to me by the people around me. I was happy. I am happy, very happy. If someone would ask me to trade everything that has happened to me this year for all things bright and shiny, I would never budge. This year is the hardest, but definitely the most beautiful. I felt every inch like a flower petal, crushed and ground only to extract the most fragrant perfume of all. If you want to buy I sell it by the bottle, limited edition so hurry. LOL.
I cannot count how many good things transpired in my life this year because they are so many, if not equal then much more than the pains I have felt. After all the trials there is a reward in the end, I saw that clearly, and believe it or not I am really thankful for all the disappointments and heartaches I have had because if not for them I would not be appreciating all the joys I have right now. I am a very blessed girl to have come to grips with all that because I became a new and improved me, which is very important if I am to share myself with others, especially to the ones I love dearly.
I feel that everything around me has improved a thousand times better, and I know it is partly because I have improved myself a thousand times better too. All the migraine from the chocolates I have eaten were worth it. But if you’d ask me to eat that much again next year, I’d say maybe I’d take it but less than two tons please. LOL.
Have a happy new year everyone. A blessed one to come for all of us. I’d also like to take this time to thank all of the people who love me and who have touched my life in every little way, hugs to everyone, thanks a lot, everything meant a great deal to me, including you all my blog friends, thank you.
See you all in 2009! It is going to be the best year of our lives.
