Another year come and gone, in the blink of an eye. And as fast as it went, I feel content in saying that this year was a great one for me. Sure, I had as many downs as I had ups, I battled anxiety and depression, and I lost a few relationships that mattered to me. And yet…
And yet. I have countless memories from this year that I’ll cherish forever. I traveled, I spent time with family and friends, I moved into a place I consider home, I rekindled my love with Disneyland, and I got married.
Sometimes late at night, as I’m laying in bed and reflecting on all the things that have happened to me in recent months, I can’t help but laugh in awe of how blessed I’ve been. Even in spite of all the bad days, days spent wallowing in self doubt and deep sadness, I’m still so thankful that in my 25 years I have led a life worth living. And during my darks days and stormy nights, I know I have all these memories and past adventures to look back on, to remind me that I still have so much ahead of me.
2017 started a bit rocky and ended on such a wonderful note that I’ll be wiping away happy tears when the clock strikes 12 in a few hours. So here’s to happy endings and beautiful, new beginnings. Tomorrow is the start of a new week, a new month, a new year. And anything is possible.
Happy New Year! May 2018 bring you love, joy, and new adventures. As always, thank you for reading ❤️
