Do you think we can fly?

As I sit and write, listening to Limp Bizkit (because where else can you find the courage to sit down and write?), I'm semi-dreading my birthday tomorrow.

That's another year gone by. Another year where so much and nothing has changed and happened.
And as this birthday creeps its ugly head in, with it comes melancholy, nostalgia, a wave of bittersweet memories... A series of last year's events flashing right before my eyes.
The best thing about it? It makes me smile.
Because 28 was what I set out to make it: Great. 

28 Was Great
(in no particular order)
  1.  Got my first ballet distinction in an RAD exam
  2.  Took my first (of soon to be many) Yoga Certification and became a Certified Yoga Teacher!
  3.  Had a college friend visit (and went sight-seeing in the city)
  4.  Courage has become a word I've gotten to know more; which led me to open up more, speak my mind and (most importantly & scare-ly) my heart
  5.  Re:previous, I've levelled up. Gained experience points. Call it what you will.
  6.  Spent another New Year celebration with my grandmother (who is 88) 
  7.  Became an owner of something other than a cat: An apartment (and therefore, became a landlady)
  8.  Have made some true progress in yoga
  9.  I've felt happier than I ever had in a long time (and am off anti-depressants)
  10.  Adapted a much more active lifestyle
  11.  Went out more (ie. became somewhat more social)
  12.  Saw The Rolling Stones and Coldplay Live
  13.  Took my first real Solo Trip (to Baja California and it was OSOM)
  14.  Keep stepping further outside my comfort-zone (and discovered that the scary isn't as scary as one thinks)
  15.  I have a new therapist (who is the bee's knees and the cat's pajamas)
  16.  Dance on pointe shoes
  17.  Took one (very small) step regarding my 'acting career': photoshoot
  18.  Went on my first yoga retreat <3 li="">
  19.  Survived and enjoyed another ballet presentation
  20.  Dyed my hair blue!
  21.  Went on dates and it was.... interesting/good/meh/etc
  22.  New friends and old friends; many good times were had
  23.  Feel like I'm much more sensible to everything (in a "I feel my eyes and heart are open to the world and see beauty it didn't use to see before" way)
  24.  Moved to a provincial town: Campeche
  25.  Became more interested in history and anthropology
  26.  Have met even more amazing people 
  27.  Sunsets. Every sunset holds a special place in my heart and I will never grow tired of them
  28.  Reunions and beaches and friends and good times

So I welcome 29 with open arms.
Nothing is absolute. Everything is everchanging.
