The end of 2006 will forever be etched in my family's memory, when my uncle lost his life in the Philippines on Christmas eve.
However, 2007 rolled around and we all realized that the proverbial forks in the road are the things that make us stronger in life.
People make mistakes all the time, and it takes the bigger person to admit to them. Whether we wish to accept or reject apologies is at the individual's discretion - but in my opinion, by accepting them makes us better people.
Family has always been of the utmost importance to me, and I feel blessed to have spent a few months at home with my parents and brother (after spending 4 years at university).
In April, I graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism & Media Studies - a moment I will always cherish, mainly because I know I made my parents proud.
After that, I spent 2 months in Cape Town where I took my TEFL course. I had an amazing time in the Mother City and had a new found respect for the beautiful country I'm from.
After my two month stint in Cape Town, I spent the next few weeks organizing for my trip to South Korea. I said my goodbyes to family and friends and embarked on what has become such an incredible journey.
So in a nutshell, 2007 has been a good year. I was blessed with good health, a supportive family and good friends.
I wish you (dear reader) everything of the best in 2008. Be safe as you bring in the new year... Hugs, and love ... xxx
