Time Never Waits

Porque 2011 está quase chegando ao fim. Porque esse ano mudou a minha vida para sempre.

Sempre faço uma retrospectiva do ano que passou aqui no blog. Respondendo à perguntas simples, deixo registrado um pouco do que fiz, das coisas pelas quais passei, pelas quais lutei. O que consegui ou não.
Mas o que foi 2011? Foi surreal. Foi como 10 anos, foi como 10 segundos. Foi intolerável, foi extasiante. Foi tudo que eu sempre quis e tão oposto a tudo que eu sempre desejei. Descobri muito mais do que supunha que viria a descobrir. Fui embora, voltei. Vivi tanto. Viajei tanto. Estive em tantos lugares novos. Senti tanta saudade. Amei. Perdi. Descobri um amor maior ainda. Perdi ainda mais. Conquistei objetivos, segui meus sonhos, me decepcionei com todos eles. Não sucumbi, não desisti. Sacudi a poeira e avistei novos horizontes. Fui em busca deles.

Não direi se me arrependi ou não de algo ou de tudo. Eu vivi. Não importa o que aconteceu, aprendi e segui adiante.
Estou aqui, com uma nova vida, novos sonhos, carrego dentro de mim todo o amor que descobri, toda a felicidade que conheci. Vou em busca de mais.

2011 foi surpreendente em todas as formas possíveis, mudou minha vida, me fez crescer. Sou grata por tudo. E mal posso esperar por 2012 e tudo que ainda me surpreenderá nessa vida.

Deixo vocês com as respostas do meme de fim de ano aqui do blog, à titulo de curiosidade e (porque não?), tradição:

Things change without asking for you permission or giving you a warning sign. If you're lucky enough to have people standing by you when everything turns bad, hold on to them and never let go.

40 - Quote a song lyric that sums up your year?

"Look up, child
The world is born
Shoe's untied
And your soles are worn

Windows are rolled down
Sun is setting high
Windows are rolled down
I'm fixing to die

Corn rows have companion feel
This rocky road and this steering wheel
Who do you call to ease your pain?
I hope for you to get through this rain

Windows are rolled down
Moon is hanging low
Windows are rolled down
Think it's time for me to go, hey

Is it what you dreamed it'd be?
Are you locked up in this fantasy?
Oh, this miles that have torn us apart
My new found faith and my broken heart

Windows are rolled down
Sun is rising high
Windows are rolled down
Feel that wind rushing by, hey

Windows are rolled down"
