HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF MY LOVELY READERS!
So, 2018 huh? I made it… We made it, THANK GOD.
It is such a blessing to have made it through the year 2017, in one piece and in sound mind. There has been so much loss in life this year, so I’m very grateful for the blessing of life. Aren’t you?
So, I was scrolling through my Instagram and twitter feed for the last few days, and all I saw (well, mostly saw) were people’s new year’s resolutions, especially who and/or what they are leaving in 2017… and I found myself cackling a little bit. Nope,
scratch that, I cackled, a lot. Laughed actually.
It’s the same thing year after year, I mean, how many people and habits can you cut out of your life and “leave in * insert year *? Or maybe it’s just because I feel like this past year did all the “cutting off” or “leaving in the past” for me. I feel like I’ve grown so much in the past year (as cliche as that sounds, its true) and life just sort of sorted itself out. When I started to reflect on 2017, I was pleasantly surprised at how little “baggage” I had. For the first time in a long time, my life’s weight had nothing to do with other people or things in my life. It all had to do with me.
Or maybe I’ve just grown up. Simple. I just don’t have the energy to hop onto the ” I’m cutting this person and that person off, leaving this and that in 2017, new year, new me, blah blah blah” train anymore.
And now that I’ve realised all these things, I have not left anyone or anything in 2017, because i don’t have to. Everyone and everything that needs to be with me, and grow with me, will be with me. And whoever or whatever doesn’t stay with me, ends there. That’s it. No drama, it’s just life. Life has chapters, with different characters here and there.
I hope you also had an eye-opening 2017, and cheers to a greatly blessed 2018.
Here’s to being the same me, in a different year.
Happy New Year to you all again.
