As year 2011 starts, I look back and remember events, experiences and moments that shaped my year. I am grateful for all the simple, yet extraordinary things... the good and not-so-good things, the small and big moments, and everything else! Minor disappointments and jealous-haters doesn't matter, they made me more understanding and stronger instead.
