2008 was a year of quite some firsts for me. I learned a lot. Mostly about myself, but also about others and the world around me. Not everything was pleasant mind you... but necessary probably.
There are many things we have to experience in this life. Experience and live through them. Learn from them.
Most of those things are very personal and let's face it, a blog is probably not the right place for them ;)
But one thing I learned this past year is this: If we don't allow ourselves to feel, we might as well be dead.
