Just like the title of this post says, I'm going to be using the new year of 2012 to make some changes in my life. A lot happened in 2011 that was rather monumental to me. I started another year of college, changed career/life goals, performed some major friend overhauls (for the betterment of all), met a lovely gentleman (and subsequently fell in love). But most of that pales in comparison with the biggest thing to happen to me in 2011: I decided to become Catholic.
This decision was a big leap for me, but I'm proud of my choice and haven't looked back once. It's a long road to get there (becoming Catholic is not an overnight process) but I've grown so much as time has passed. It may sound corny or whatnot, but I've definitely become more peaceful since coming back to God. It's nice to know that I can count on Him to help me through everything, and I can think of countless examples of how, just when I thought everything was going to fall apart, He swooped in with a bigger and better plan for me. The changes in me are profound (at least in my opinion), I'm all the better for it.
I feel like sharing my journey with the world. I feel like it will help me process what is happening in this new chapter of my life. But I also hope that maybe someone out there will also benefit from hearing my story, and make the changes they need to in their life.
Until next time. Peace be with you all.
