2012 was a veritable emotional roller-coaster for me. The year started off so well and things were fine until mid-Summer when my personal life took a nose-dive. The rest of the year was spent fighting depression and feeling rather lost. People who know me personally know the story, and I don't want to repeat it here.
I don't believe in god but I do believe in fate; I think things are meant to happen, whether we like it or not. And I also believe in the saying that 'when one door closes, another one opens'. And so as Summer turned to Autumn, new people came into my life, new ideas, new projects.
The people who leave us - for whatever reason - can never be replaced, that much is certain. But in fact we must move forward, however much we hate doing so.
So today I would like to thank all the people in my life - near or far, famous or infamous - who stuck by me and encouraged me thru this difficult time. The consolation of music, dance, art, nature, and books is a great asset in my life, but it's the people around me who make it really meaningful.
I know sometimes I take my friends people for granted; I can be selfish, manipulative and inconsiderate. That they don't give up on me gives me a reason to believe.
Thanks everyone, and Happy New Year!
