Oh we have walked a long road to get to where we are today.
You have been quite a year.
Thanks Two Oh Twelve for being an insightful one.
I feel almost a little greedy.. with the amount of life experience and knowledge I know hold close to my heart.
Its the year Cam & I created children.
Its the year I was stripped bare. Down to nothing.
Its the year I got used to the idea of Death and Dying.
Its the year where I shared my darkest thoughts with strangers.
Its the year I learnt that my gut instinct is almost always right.
Its the year I learnt to really laugh.
Its the year that made me reevaluate my entire way of thinking.
A year spent smiling just as much as crying.
A year where I lost people dear to my heart.
A year that taught me to live.
I will never ever take anything for granted. Ever again.
I will be in control and aware of my own health and well being.
I will do all that I can to reach my full health potential.
Because. There is no way (as good of a lesson as its been) that I want to go through this again.
For my family to go through this again.
I am blessed to be sitting here today. Typing this. At the other end. Out the other side.
I hold onto the second chance tightly with both hands.
This time last year. I was preparing myself for something that I could not even begin to comprehend.
I dont know what is next. I dont know what 2013 has in store for us.
And that makes me smile.
At least I am starting this year a lot healthier than the last.
Its a good start.
To everyone that has followed me through this year. Thank you.
You have all been so kind and in your own little ways, taught me so much.
To my family. And by family I dont just mean my own. I mean Cam's Family too.
You have each played such a massive role in my recovery this last year and I will be forever grateful.
Enjoy the company you keep as you ring in the New Year. Where ever you are in this big world of ours.
Happy New Year & Lots of Love from me and mine, to you and yours.
