2014. 12 months. A year loaded with happiness, laughter, sorrow, depression, hard work, no work, friends, ex-friends, meeting new people, reuniting with old ones, spending time with people, spending time alone & much more.
I’ve learned SO much this year, & I am extremely grateful for every second of the past 365 days. I have regrets, many actually, but it’s a way of learning. Learning from mistakes that I’ve made & trying to move forward. I blame no one, not even myself. It’s all a part of life. You make mistakes, regret, forgive, maybe not forget, but eventually move forward. Without all this, life would be rather bland.
I have moved away from holding grudges and playing the little games we did as kids. I despise and stay away from drama. It is a waste of time. I’d rather be doing stuff that is beneficial for me and for others around me. If I don’t like you, I’ll simply stay away from you. We are not meant to like everyone, its human nature. Everyone is different and sometimes those differences seem to clash. It is natural. But there is a way of dealing with things, by dealing I don’t mean making them worse. We all need to survive, not just you and me, but everyone. Make decisions in life that won’t end up harming the people around you. You can’t ignore the fact that we are all in this world, and we all are trying to live.
I have moved away from many people in 2014, and have distanced myself from them. It has brought me more happiness away from them than near them. The people that have stuck by me the entire year are the ones that I know will stay with me for a very long time. These people are my parents, sisters, best friend and other close friends.
People usually start off the year by saying ‘new year, new me’. But quite frankly, this is going to be a new year, with new experiences, & new changes, but it’s still going to be the old me. Maybe a bit improved but for the most part, still the same. I hope this New Year is full of surprises, goals, ambitions, success, prosperity, love and loads of happiness for everyone. Stay blessed.
