2009 started out pretty badly for me ... I had to deal with a psycho ex who was out to bleed me out emotionally, psychologically, and financially. He and his family harassed my family and even went as far as throwing a stone at our house. Yes, it was that bad.
Then another sad thing happened ... a tragedy we thought of at that time. We were being asked to move out of the house we were renting because the owner needed it all of a sudden. Just when we were starting to do well with our little store, we had to start all over again.
We thought this was a tragedy but it was actually a blessing in disguise. We were finally away from my ex who used to live right across the street from us. We were finally free from their hateful stares and curses.
From that point on, there were a lot of good things that have happened. There were still some down moments and crazy moments that made me want to curse at the world but overall, it was a year full of bonding moments with family, friends, and my love.
I am still not where I want to be but I am slowly getting there. I am becoming a better person and I am able to pinpoint my flaws and come up with action plans to make an improvement.
2009 was a turbulent year for me. I hope that 2010 will be more peaceful.
