Dear 2010

Dear 2010,
You have been one of the most challenging years of my life. It all started on the 3rd day of your existence and went on for many months. In a bizarre way I know what I have done in every week of this year. Time has stood still at times. I know one thing for sure, that I have emerged out of this year stronger, stronger than ever.
I now appreciate the value of time. I was floating by not caring about how much time I had on this planet. Even if I live to a ripe old age of 90, I will still value time now like never before.
I appreciate my family and friends even more. I have clarity in my thought and vision and I know who my true friends are. Not everyone has the luxury of knowing that.
All in all 2010, I dont hate you. I will not say "good riddance" to you on the 31st of December. I have had some really good and enlightening moments in this year. I have searched within myself and found some answers and I have lived the days I felt good, to my fullest. More importantly my dear son turned 1 year old this year and is turning out to be everything I ever wanted and more. I have learnt to not to be bitter and bitter I am not about you, dear 2010. But at the sametime, I am very eager for a new beginning in 2011 and turning over a new leaf. Afterall I am all about beginnings now.
My best wishes for your speedy archival!

Do you know the worst day of your life?

I am wondering how many of you know or can pinpoint the worst day of your lives?
I have two. Both were results of phone calls. The kind of day where you know that everything is going to be uphill from that moment on. The kind of day where you know you cannot hit the bottom anymore. You are already in the abysmal bottom and for the rest of your life you are crawling back up.
