Happy New Year

I can not believe that it is 2009. Doesn't it feel like just yesterday it was 2008?

In 2009, R will be 5 and Z will be 2. In 2009, I will apply for the nursing program. In 2009, I will get to see my best friend whom I haven't seen in a year. In 2009, I will get to see David Cook *sigh*. I think this will be a good year.

Looking back, 2007 was one of the worst years of my life. True, I had Z and he's my gorgeous boy but that year will forever be marked by the Big D. The word that nobody ever wants to say but is always there: divorce. That was the year Ex walked out on us and I was a divorced woman. I'm not dwelling on it, just stating the facts. I'm a divorced woman and that's the year it happened.

2008 was a year of growth. I grew and changed. I'm not sad to see 2008 go. I think it took me 2 years to get back to normal. I needed everything that happened in 2008 to get to where I am today. I'm stronger and better because of it. I have hurt people, though, and I didn't want to. I feel bad for doing it, but I guess that's a part of life, right? Sometimes you have to hurt someone in order to get away from the same old stuff and to grow.

2009 is full of hope. I have hope that this year will be better than the past 2. It's a gradual getting better and I know that this year will be awesome. :)
