aftermaths are very interesting. they have enormous possibilities as lessons. or afterthoughts. 2007 has been both.
i learned that listening helps (so much) in uncomfortable conversations, and that patience pays off NOT just in the end. my complains struggle to fade away, but they are slowly disappearing. i'm thankful instead. excuses and reasons to fail have no place in my journey. i know that i'm finally growing up. i accept myself. i will defy expectations.
so, for you, a student of life...start to learn.
