Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2007:

“Things happen for a reason” even though I don’t wholey believe in it…

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

I’m not a perfect person
There’s many things I wish I didn’t do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I’m sorry that I hurt you
It’s something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You [x4]

I’m not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I’ve found a reason to show
A side of me you didn’t know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

There is so much meaning into that song. The song makes me think of the break-up I went through with Adam (if you read some of my older posts from 2005 on Myspace, you’ll read how I didn’t want to hurt him but I had to tell him how I was feeling knowing how much it was going to hurt), and at the same time, there is some meaning in the song that can relate to my relationship with Greg, particularly “I’ve found a reason to show a side of me you didn’t know, a reason for all that I do and the reason is you.” That particular lyric of the song makes me think of Greg because the side of me that he didn’t know what my complete and total trust in him (emotionally and physically), aside from the love I feel for him, and, obviously, all that I do for and to him is because of my love and trust in him
