Dear 2013 …
It’s been a very dumpy ride and you have been anything but kind to me. You saw the end of a long relationship which I invested so much energy and passion into. You brought with you disrespect and gossip from people who don’t know me which I showed nothing but admiration for. You watched as I lost good friendships, endured more medical emergencies than I can list on paper, family stress, financial worry, a tango with none other than Dolores Umbrige and one work disappointment after another. You teased me with beautiful dreams and countless opportunities, then closed the door in my face each time. And you had no shame in pushing the envelope on the very last week of the year when with one final blow I found out that even if I do go to Canada, my Permanent Residence will not be extended, forcing me to stay here, thinking about what could have been.
You’ve left me crushed, disappointed and heartbroken.
But I am not known as a winner. I never was. Despite being an easy target, I was always the kid who is headstrong, who keeps trying no matter what, and against all odds still manages to go through it with a grin at the end.
I look back at you now, and in the middle of the mountain of coal that you have poured onto me, I see plenty of diamonds, glistening, reminding me that it wasn’t so bad after all.
My art has finally taken off. My photography is not just a hobby anymore. I have traveled and watched two of my idols on stage. And most of all, I have met some of the most incredible and extraordinary people I have ever had the pleasure to get to know. People who have picked me up when I was down, who have reminded me who I was when I felt lost, and who gave me the strength to lift my head up despite all which you have spat at me, and smile once again.
So thank you 2013, for making me that much stronger and for reminding me that no matter how deep I walk into the darkness, I am never alone. That when I reach out, someone will be there to take my hand and walk with me. That I have friends and family that love me just the way I am, and that is to me the most valuable thing in the world.
Having said this all this … 2014 … get ready, cause you are going to be MY year!
Happy New Year to you all!
