For those who have not read her New Year message, check it out below (unedited)

I can’t believe what started as a slow year has come by so fast. Today is the last day of 2012 and although I’m excited for the New Year to begin, I can’t help but be a little sad to say goodbye to 2012.

I have to admit it’s been one of the most exciting/interesting and adventurous years I’ve had in a very long time. I still remember 31stnight of last year in church with my usual culprits, praying and ushering in the New Year. I honestly don’t remember what I prayed about but I walked out of church excited and this feeling has been with me throughout the year.

I can’t put into words everything that happened this year but I’ll attempt to summarize what I learnt.
I probably worked harder this year than I have in a while, shooting in countries I never dreamt I would, but thanks to some amazing people had the opportunity to visit and work in them. Although challenging the experience helped me grow, both as a person and an entertainer.

This year I made lost and reaffirmed friendships. I fell in and out of love, had my heart broken and broke others; in the process I learnt more about myself, life and importance of forgiveness.

I became bolder, more out spoken and less contrived. I took risks, some worth it others came back to bite me in the butt.
I laughed a lot louder, smiled a lot more and cried a lot less.
I learnt to be less judgmental of people, relationships and the choices they make.
I lost loved ones and through grief learnt to appreciate life, understand my calling and fulfill my destiny.

I found myself this year, I finally had the courage to look deep within myself to find and accept myself for who I am. A process that was neither deliberate nor easy, but necessary. When you find yourself you no longer have to pretend to be something you’re not. You have better friends, career and relationships, because you know exactly what you want and are not ashamed to forgo anything that doesn’t make you happy.

Through all these process I gained the most important gift of all, understanding.

Here’s a little analysis I came up with:

We’re all on a journey, and on that journey comes different paths, distance etc. Each of us has different ways to finish the race, some run others walk and others chose to alternate between the two. Either way its an individual journey and our paths only cross as part of this journey.  When we understand this we’re slow to anger and more understanding of the people we encounter.

On your journey people will hurt you, and you will hurt others; that’s just part of the process. Through you, people will learn things they never knew about themselves and vice versa.

Mistakes are part of this journey; some learn fast others take a longer time and a few more mistakes to learn. Always remember that you may have passed one level just as someone is beginning, therefore the things you know through mistakes maybe completely alien to someone else.

For this reason they will never understand your anger and frustration at the things you know they are doing wrong. Its hard but sometimes you need to let people find their own path.
This is a very complex thing to understand, and it takes a level of self acceptance to understand it, if you can not admit your flaws and mistakes, how are you able to point out someone else’s.

This is probably one of the best things that happened to me in 2012, the ability to accept who I am, in order to accept who others are. Acceptance doesn’t mean agreement it just means making peace with it.

2012 Has been my foundation year, all this was a foundation on which I am going to build my life and career.

2013, its time to build, a I know with such a solid foundation the building will be unbreakable. Thank you all for being a part of my life, I started a list but stopped because I couldn’t finish on time for New Years.

Thank you  for the memories of 2012 with it I enter the New Year with  strength and confidence.
