Random Realizations. Rants. Recap. 2012

This 2012 has been the best, so far. I’ve done things I never thought I could or would ever do. I’m thankful for those people who made this year so kick ass.

First of all, God, for giving me a butt load of chances to change, even though it took a bajilion pushes, I finally think that I’m done with my old effed up ways. My family, for also tolerating my spoiled-hard-headed-ass of a self, and for understanding my bipolarness. My dear old friends for still being there, despite my forked up, imperfections, are still by my side, with their silly grins and warm hugs, and still being able to hang out as if we’re still in high school. I also want to thank those, cold hearted forkers, who made this year kinda hard to handle, thank  you, who would think that you’ve made a woman out of your messed up childish ways.
Lets forget that I have an archive, Leme look back at some awesome shizzz that bedazzled this awesome year!

This post couldn’t be long enough, to express how thankful and happy I am, with everything this year has given to me, even all the headaches, the sleepless nights, the heartaches, the body pains, the hangovers, the mini heart attacks etc.
This year I learned that,  one does not only have to be  nice all the time, we have to be mean sometimes, don’t let these bastards push you just because they think you’re a goody good girl. There are boundaries. Set them yourself, don’t let them make a fool out of you, and be too nice to not even see it.
Stand up. Speak from your heart. Do what you love. Don’t harm them, just let them see what kind of evil they have done, and for sure, they’ll learn.
Forget the past, accept it, and learn from it.
Its OK to act silly, as long as you’re with friends.
Forgive and forget.
Live at the moment, you don’t wanna get the “I wish I could have done it otherwise” feeling.
I can’t be an FBI agent, I say awesome too much.
Only Supernatural Fanatics would understand
Lots of love,
