Hi there everyone!
It's definitely 2013 across the globe now (this Journal is heavily overdue, I couldn't access Weasyl for some time), I've celebrated it three times myself!
New Year's Resolutions? I have a few;
If I think of anymore I'll add them, haha!
2012 has been a tough year, with my mate overseas, having to move twice (both for undesirable reasons) and being a bit more ill than usual I'm... glad its over. But it's also been a very good year! I got to meet a lot of new people, some whom I wished I didn't, but a lot I'm very glad I did, I got to visit Japan, the interest in my art has increased and I've had a hell of a lot of fun! Honestly, touch wood, 2013 can only get better. With my mate coming back in a few months, with this new degree, attending my first FurCon, possibly getting a fursuit, maybe a cintiq and having a mothertruckin' job (lawl)... I'm feeling really positive.
And it makes me look back to a time when I wanted nothing other than to disappear, to kill myself, to do away with myself for the sake of others and to escape. Each time I feel like this, so satisfied and optimistic, I give a big middle finger to those thoughts I had. I'm fucking glad I'm here, I'm fucking happy I never gave up and I'm so thankful to all of the people who helped me be strong enough to make it this far - even when my own mind didn't make sense to me, even when I was trapped in this strange fucked up alternate universe full of terrors and anxiety. To anyone and everyone who has been a part of my life, even those who have fucked me around, I thank you. You made me who I am today, and even though I'm far from perfect I'm always trying to be a better person.
But mostly, to all of the people who have been a positive light in my life, however little, thank you. Thank you for helping me to be strong. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for letting me cry on your shoulder. Thank you for hearing me bitch. Thank you for having fun with me. Just thank you for being you and choosing to spend some of your life with me.
An extra special mention to you know who you all are. You guys, who I honestly love. You are those closest to me in this world and I wouldn't be the same without any of you.
Here's to a great year! I love you all.
