Changes are everything.
2011 was moving.
2011 was trying to fit in. And it didn't work.
2011 was becoming a teen.
2011 was overcoming crushes and figuring out that it’s worthless to spend time over them.
2011 was leaving youth group.
2012 has been frustrating.
2012 has been exploring:
The work world.
Myself. I have now got a vague grasp on who I want to be, and whose I am.
2012 has been learning how to draw…with good results.
2012 was going to a new youth group.
2012 has been a realizing year.
2012 was realizing that soccer isn't everything.
2012 has been going through the teen depression stage.
But when you surface, you can see how far you've come. And, in my case, it brought me into a closer relationship with God.
If you endure hard stuff, don’t feel like it is totally worthless. Because it isn't. God can do anything! Even if you can only see the first step, not the whole staircase, keep going, cos God has a plan for you.
2012 has had the satisfaction of being able to play the piano. A little.
A lot has changed since last year. And it will change again. And again. But I don’t mind.
The end of 2012 has brought more possibilities, more friendships. I am so thankful to God! He used my time in the desert to bring me closer to Him, build my relationships, and make me think.
All of last year (2011 and half of 2012) was being a silly, stupid teenager girl. I want to change that. I want people to respect me.
I am ready for 2013.
