Reflection of the year...

So, it is that time of the year where we need to reflect on the year that has gone by and think of all the good times and the not so good times and what we've learnt and what we will change in the coming year. Normally I won't do this for everyone to see, but rather in the privacy of my diary, but since I haven't written in my diary since March this year and since I did start this blog in order to write and tell the world something, I might as well share it with the few people that bothers to read it... What I've learnt from 2010:
  • God shows Himself to you in the strangest ways. Even if it is in the big green eyes of my crazy cat, who licks herself lazily next to me at night.
  • I love working with black people. Their way of surviving as a community and sharing everything - even if it is their last piece of bread, as well as their gratefulness for the smallest things is something that I admire and that I will miss everyday that I'm not working for the goverment.
  • You will never find the perfect job. There will always be aspects that are great in one environment where in another environment with other benefits - you might not find it. You should make the best of what you have at the moment as you can always learn something new, no matter what you are doing.
  • You can be best friends with a boy even if you have a boyfriend and even if this particular boy is your ex-boyfriend. As long as you are completely honest with each other and with the partners in your life at all times.
  • Old people are extremely difficult creatures. They are unthankful, helpless, needy and childlike. They are also still the human beings I love the most and it breaks my heart everyday to work with them.
  • I really do love soccer and the South African spirit I experienced in the World Cup. I will always "Feel It" from time to time and then sing Waka Waka in the shower.
  • You can loose your randomness if you are surrounded by people that are never random. It does however come back quickly once you are with those random people again.
  • There is a different you that hides away and sometimes come out in crisis situations (e..g having a gun to your head) that is calm and collected and can take charge when necessary. Maybe this person can one day show it's face more often and I can actually become closer to the person I aspire to be.
  • I really do not like guns!
  • I really love puppies and think that you experience true happiness for a split second when a puppy is wriggling in your arms and licking your face.
  • I can talk to people of different religions about God and sometimes they understand me better than people from my own religion.
  • You can have so much fun with the following phrase: "in your pants"
  • I will never be part of another crazy and random department as the one in had in Rustenburg.
  • Continuously showing God's love to the world, does have an effect on people - even if in some cases it takes a very long time to see the effect.
  • Life is indeed like a box of chocolates.
  • I do not like Jack Parrow and places where there is so much smoke and noise that you cannot have a conversation with your friends.
  • You can have lots of friends and you should, but there are one or two friends who are your best friends and knows you so well that you don't even have to say something for them to know how you feel.
  • A BlackBerry is the next best thing since sliced bread.
  • People judge books by it's covers every single day.
  • I am much stronger than I sometimes believe I am.
  • I love Bob Dylan. He is like red wine. Once you get used to the taste, you cannot live without it.
  • It is possible to love someone a little bit more every single day.

May 2011 be filled with love, laughter and lots of random thoughts...
