Better things

On December 30, 2010, I wrote a post about the things that I wanted in 2011.

It was a difficult time for me. I was unemployed, broke, disheartened and seriously questioning the path my life was taking.

I asked the world that 2011 bring me these things:

Wishing that maybe next year I’ll have more than $7.

Wishing that maybe next year I’ll have someone to kiss at midnight.

Wishing that maybe next year I’ll be stumbling home to my own apartment downtown.
It’s been a long year, but I do have slightly more than $7 and I’ll be celebrating the New Year in my own apartment in the city.

And I will have someone to kiss at midnight.

It’s funny how things change.

In many ways, I will be happy to see 2011 go - too many awful things have happened to the people I love this year. But on the other hand, I also got my dream job, a beautiful new apartment, a new car and, yes, even a new boyfriend.

For the next few days I’ll be thinking of some resolutions for 2012 - but truth be told, I’m happy. Right now. Here. Doing this. Being me.

You know, it’s okay
I’m kinda happy here for now
I think I’ve finally grown up
And got myself a love of now
