Goodbye '09

This year.
This year was unlike any I have ever lived through.
One of reflection; on myself and everything around me.
After all that I have been, I am now here, at twenty-six years old, and I feel like a child learning about the world.
All that I was sure of, is now open- to possibilities, to randomness.
And some unusual things have become more sure to me. Some unexpected things.
I've been up and down, bored and busy. Inspired and dull, high and low.
But my life has opened up-
...or, perhaps, I have opened up.
Looking back, I am surprised.
Really surprised to feel okay with this year.
Because, this year, I became more me.
I began to learn more about the Reinel that I would like to be.
She is not here just yet, but she will be fully alive one day soon.
