Hello beautiful people ! How are you all ?
I hope you enjoyed the last week of 2018, and I sure as hell hope you are ready to start a new chapter in your life.
It’s December 31st already, and I don’t even know how we got here so fast.
“New Year” is kind of overrated, some might say, and I agree. Cause it depends on how and what you plan on doing for the next 365 days of your life.
Some might just celebrate at 11:59 to 12:01, and then pick up where they left off, with the same mentality, same spirits, same low hopes etc etc..
Then yes, it doesn’t even matter if you celebrate New Year that way, it’s called NEW Year for a reason; it means ditch the OLD habits, OLD routines, OLD toxic mentalities, OLD damaged relationships, OLD perspectives, let go of the OLD you.
You spent the last 365 days of your life experiencing new things, going on new adventures, meeting new people, trying new things… it doesn’t have to be big. It shouldn’t be just about getting a new huge place, or a million dollar car, or stuff like that, it’s always about the little new things that happened;
That one movie you watched and changed your view on something, the new recipe you tried and ended up loving, the new artist you started listening to, the new coffee shop you started going to, the new book you read….
Those small thing shape us into becoming who we are today, and if you keep on focusing on the little things you’ll end up having huge things. It’s always one step at a time.
Therefore, if you plan on celebrating New Year the right way, do that. Tell yourself you’re going to take one step forward each day, you’re going to start loving yourself cause you deserve that, you’re going to take care of yourself and admire your flaws and imperfections. You’re going to show the people you love that you love them, and let go of whoever and whatever is holding you back, cause if there was any good in that, things would’ve been different. You’re going to work harder, read more books, train harder and get fitter. You might want to get up an hour earlier to admire the sunrise, or sleep an hour later to enjoy some quiet time alone at night.
It doesn’t matter what your goals are this year, but be fearless in the pursuit of chasing them!
You didn’t wake up everyday this year to not learn anything new, take the lessons life taught you and use them to grow older and wiser, don’t make the same mistakes twice, the same road won’t lead to a different destination!
For me personally, this year has been life changing. I graduated, got through my first college semester *finals are on their way, fingers crossed*, I went through a lot and it was all worth it. Incidents happened and I still can’t explain why, I lost a dear friend I call my lil bro due to suicide and it was an eye opening situation for me, I lost a couple of people who meant the world and it was painful, but I know now it was for a good reason. Nothing happens without a reason. It took me quite some time to understand that, and now that I do, I thank God for everything. I got to meet amazing souls who now have a hold of my heart, I got to meet my boyfriend who’s genuinely the greatest person I’ve known and for that I’m grateful, I kept the people who are close to my heart and held them even closer * you know who you guys are! FAM*
I’m thankful for this year, and I can’t wait for the next 365 days of my life, they’re going to be LEGENDARY! *Barney Stinson vibes* ( I hope.)
Happy new year to all of you!
You beautiful people, my readers, you’re the best in the world. I hope that each one of you get the blessing they’ve been waiting for.
Enjoy beautiful people!
