My best moment and biggest lesson of 2012


Hey lovelies... As the end of 2012 draws nearer and nearer, I am feeling rather reflective. I doubt I'm alone in this. When something comes to an end, it's always a great opportunity to look back, reflect and ask yourself why the heck you cried tears for someone that was no where near worth it lol. 

2012 has been an interesting year for me. There have been some major highs and of course, some not so great moments when I wasn't even sure how I would get through.... Buuuuut, I did! Thank you Lord. :D

I wanted to share my happiest and saddest times of this year with you in the hope that it will inspire or encourage you in some way.

BEST MOMENT
One of the best, if not THE best moment of 2012 was being given an opportunity to present a show on BBC Radio 1Xtra for a month. This was pretty awesome and a big accomplishment for me and my co-presenter! Some people don't understand the hustle, the passion or the amount of hard work that goes into doing what I do. Trying to become a successful and well established radio broadcaster requires a lot of sacrifice, so when you see the fruits of your labour, it is beautiful beyond words. Watch this space for 2013!

BIGGEST LESSON
When someone or something makes you unhappy, get the f**k away from that person or that situation. This sounds pretty obvious- I know! But when you're in the situation it is never this obvious or this easy. I found myself in a very messed up situation with someone and all it did was drain my energy, piss me off and leave me feeling low (pretty much everyday). I look back now and want to scream at myself and give myself a bloody good slap for staying in it for so long, knowing how unhappy that person made me feel. I know why I did it. I wanted to exhaust ALL avenues before I gave up on it and I guess I wanted to prove that I was strong and a fighter, but at what cost??? My health? My happiness? My sanity! (that's how it felt at times). 


I prayed and prayed for clarity and direction and finally mustered up the sense to leave that situation in the past and look for pastures greener. No word of a lie, the day I did was probably one of the happiest days of 2012. I felt so refreshed, so happy, so liberated and so strong! I also felt a bit like a d*ckhead for not doing it sooner, but you live and learn eh. So my word to you is this.... 

IF SOMEONE OR SOMETHING DOES NOT MAKE YOU HAPPY AND FEEL GOOD, LET GO OF IT AND MOVE ON. TRUST IN YOURSELF AND HAVE FAITH THAT SOMETHING BETTER IS AROUND THE CORNER- TRUST ME, IT IS! ;)


The highs of this year definitely balanced out the lows and without the lows, I may not have appreciated the highs as much so I am definitely thankful for the way this year has panned out. As I always say, there is a blessing in every lesson. Look back at the lows, analyse them and learn from them. That's how you grow.

 As I enter 2013, I feel ready. I feel prepared. I feel happy! 

Thank you Lord and thank you to every and anyone who took the time to read this post. 

Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. xx
