2009 brought out the best in me. While we all have our ups and downs, it also brought out the beauty in me. The beauty to forgive, the beauty to heal, and the beauty to love. Countless wonderful things happened in the year 2009. But one realization I find the most self-fulfilling was the awareness of Love's Presence that surrounds me.
Aside from all the dreams and visions of success I have in this world, the only true goal that remains is God. For the dream to become One with Love is a dream far different and rewarding than anything else in this world.
It was in 2009 I reunited with my Past, made peace with the Present, and have dreamt big for the Future. After 2009, I know life for Tameer will never ever be the same again.
I am continuously learning. I am continuously developing. I am becoming something more than before and something better than ever. I know this because I know who I am. I know this because I know what I am. 2010 is a new decade, a new era, and a new dawn. 2010 is a beginning and an ending. It is the first of the next ten years to come. It is also the last of the past ten years. 2010 is a year which I know will help facilitate my growth and development into something greater than myself.
There will be obstacles, roadblocks, detours, barriers, and possibly an overwhelming darkness. But 2009 helped me understand a positive attitude and an optimistic outlook on life tremendously assist the process of recovery. 2009 also taught me one cannot build a new world with old bricks. This new world for me is a world of self-discovery. A world in which true discovery lies within me, and not without me in my physical surroundings.
but in having new eyes."
Thank you 2009.
