As I look back on this past year I am reminded of how lucky I am. I have experienced some life changing experiences and I intend for them to change me for the better. These experiences have been both very positive and enjoyable, but some have been hard, trying and sad experiences as well. I feel like this year, for me, truly sums up how life is. There are ups and downs.

However, with that said, I truly believe that how I look at the experiences after they’ve come and gone determines whether or not I grow from them. It determines how far I get in life. It determines my happiness. I’m going to share my experiences with you now.
First the “negative” ones, then the positives and then what I’ve learned from the negative ones and how I really don’t view them as negative.
