Goodbye 2010...

There are 27 days left in the year 2010 and to be perfectly honest, I really can't wait for it to end.

Simply put, 2010 would go down as the worst year of my life.

Goodbye 2010. I'll miss some of you but for the most part, good riddance!

Sure I've had bad years in the past but none of them were remotely close to what I went through this year. Never had I known and/or experienced so much pain and betrayal in my life, and for a long time, I went through a really bad patch.

Ironically, I had an awesome start to 2010. I truly felt and believed that 2010 was gonna be an extension of a good 2009 and the start of a lifetime of happiness, unbridled passion and unconventional love. I started the year filled with hopes and positivity, and coming off from a life-changing 2009, there was no reason to think otherwise.

But as they say, “The bigger they come the harder they fall.” And fall I did. I spiraled down from an unprecedented high so fast that before one could say ‘Tu!’ I found myself down and practically out for the count.

Who would have thought that such happiness in life could lead to so much misery? I guess I was blinded by what I felt that I failed to see the tell-tale signs of the impending burst and when it hit, I was caught off guard. Had I not been oblivious, I wouldn't have allowed myself to be that happy, y'know?

But all is not lost. I am not going to allow myself to be down forever. I am way too good a person to do that. I take comfort in what Horace said: “The harder you fall, the higher you bounce.” I might have fallen down hard but I just need to take it my stride and learn from it.

Here's to 2011: A New year, a new beginning, renewed hopes and an awesome new life...

And come 2011, I will bounce back, and I will bounce higher than how hard I fell.

You can bring me to my knees but I will never allow anyone to bury me that way.
