For anyone who truly knows me, knows that I was bullied as a kid. No matter what people say, words do hurt. A lot. To this day, I can still hear some of the mean kids saying hurtful things to me and about me like it was yesterday. I'm 28. For me, the pain of it all has never fully gone away. I remember it all. I remember the names of every person who ever said or did something mean to me. I remember being at sleepovers and hearing people who were supposed to be my friends say hurtful things about me when they thought I was sleeping. Hell, I even had a teacher in 4th grade who was part of the problem. I suffered from depression (on and off) and anxiety attacks up until my mid 20s when I tried Hypnotherapy as a way of helping me let go. It actually worked.
Want to help her put an end to bullying?

So, I sat down before the year ended and tried to write one of my traditional year- end blogs, but I couldn’t do it. I had writers block. At first I thought I just wasn’t ready to write, as I have to be inspired and the mood has to hit. I ended up realizing that I had nothing I wanted to really write about. I had already written about ever thing I wanted to. What I have decided to do instead is a little different. I have compiled a list of my favorite things in 2010; from my favorite songs, to movies, my favorite album and my best moments of the year.
My favorite songs
I don’t know what I would do without Music in my life. It has always gotten me through the tough times, and it makes the good times that much better. Sometimes my favorite song of the moment can come on my iPod and brighten my day, that's all it takes! Here is a list of some of those songs I had on constant rotation this past year.
Train – Hey Soul Sister
Jason Derulo - In My Head
B.O.B feat. Haley Williams & Eminem – Airplanes Pt. 2
Taio Cruz – Dynamite
Usher – DJ Got Us Falling in Love
The Script – Breakeven
Lady Antebellum – Need You Now
La Roux – Bulletproof
Katy Perry – Teenage Dream
Flo Rida Ft. David Guetta – Club Can’t Handle Me
Mumford and Sons – Little Lion Man
The Reason – Longest Highway Home
Florence And The Machine – Dog Days Are Over
Eminem – Not Afraid
Brandon Flowers – Crossfire
Muse – Uprising
Nelly – Just A Dream
Linkin Park – The Catalyst
Finger Eleven – Living In A Dream
Arcade Fire – Ready to Start
My Favorite Movies
Get Him To The Greek - P Diddy is actually funny! Who knew?!
Easy A - So much better than I thought it would be!
Shutter Island- Completely Mind fucked
Scott Pilgram vs. the World
Kick- Ass - I just had no words for how killer that little girl was
The Social Network
The Kids Are All Right- Its great that movies like this can be made in America
Morning Glory - I love me some Rachel McAdams and her hot costar
Love and Other Drugs - Jake G's naked bum and Anne Hathaway awesomeness
Top movies of the year that I haven’t seen yet, but am sure I will love: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, The Town , Toy Story 3, The Fighter, Black Swan
My Favorite Album of 2010
Taylor Swift – Speak Now
Say what you will about Taylor, it seems you either love her or hate her. I love her. I love seeing positive girls out there, actually being a good role model for the young ones. She’s a true songwriter. She tells stories of real life that people can really relate to. I can just say that with everything I have been through in the past year, I have never listened to an entire album that spoke to me more than “Speak Now.”
My Favorite Moments
Going to Las Vegas for the first time in January
Fitting 7 people into the Photo booth at the Drake in March
Watching NKOTB member Joey McIntyre seriously rocking out to Down With Webster during CMW
Apryl’s Bachelorette at Muzik – Gangsta’s Paradise
Getting birthday tattoos with Krista in May
Cousin Dallas coming to visit from Calgary in June
Dallas saving the precious goat Darla from a terrible fate, then learning Darla was pregnant
Watching the birth of those 2 little goats – I never need to see that again
Going on my first 7 day beach vacation with Jenny to Punta Cana in October
Concerts: Our Lady Peace, Adam Lambert, Bon Jovi and Hanson
My family Christmas – both of them
Ending the year in Montreal with Nat
Having good friends in my life: Natalie, Krista, Sandra & Paul – you all are my rock, whether you know It or not.
In my 2009 recap I said that I had grown that year more than any other. Well, it was the same for 2010. I went through a heck of a lot and I learned so much about life and about myself. I've got big plans this year and I have already made my action plan...and put some of those into motion. I can't wait to share all of my adventures with you.

"Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain.
The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?"
