i’m pretty sure the past year has been the worst of my life, but one of my resolutions a year ago was to “cultivate strength through adversity” so i guess i have to look at 2012 as one long opportunity to fulfill my resolution. i think it worked, though. i feel significantly stronger and more sure of myself than i did a year ago. at the same time, i have felt incredibly depressed, lonely, lost, betrayed, forgotten, and hopeless. but it’s another year now. gonna make it work.
Be as swift as the coursing river
Have all the force of a great typhoon
Have all the strength of a raging fire
Be as mysterious as the dark side of the moon
