Looking back on 2013

As 2013 went by, let's take a moment and look back on all that has happened in 2013. It has been an exciting year and there's a lot to remember, so let's recount the major milestone. In many ways, 2013 was a big-time growth year for me. I tried a lot of things, I failed at a lot of things and I learned A LOT about myself in the process.

And for the first time in my life, I have a full record of much of it by way of this blog (though I feel not much of reflection was capture but it does bring back memories.)

One of the main lessons I learned this year is that I can't 'do it all'. And that half of the things I thought mattered, really don't matter at all (wanting things that I actually hate and don't want at all just because every else seems to like/want them). I'm extremely grateful for that lesson because it help me realize: Life is continuous re-invention. Re-evaluation of what matters, Re-construction of priorities and re-commitment to goals.

However, despite my natural tendency to have an always improving mindset and attitude (I'm a self-help junkie..LOL), this year I realized that being grateful for who I am, what I have and what I am already doing is important. Change is a wonderful thing, but so is savoring the present, living in the moment and reveling in life as it happens. 

This year, I loved more and thought more that I ever have before. 2013 was a year for falling back in love with and in doing so, really getting to know myself.
