“In the New Year, never forget to thank your past years because they enabled you to reach today! Without the stairs of the past, you cannot arrive at the future!” ―
My new year began with losing someone I considered to be a close friend. I haven’t been posting as many blogs lately, but I needed time to gather my thoughts on recent events and grow as a person
I’ve lost a lot of friends and people in the past year. I know I’ve changed. I’ve grown as a person. I don’t need anyone else, even though I want them. I have learned to be independent and self sufficient because you can’t rely on or trust anyone besides yourself.
I also learned that there are a lot of things in my life that I can’t change, but I can change the way I view them. Instead of looking at it as a friendship ending, I can see it as bettering myself by losing a toxic person out of my life.
For the first time in my life, I can say that I am truly happy with myself and who I am. I’m not worried about what other people think I’m just being myself and for once doing what I want and what makes me happy.
I’m ready to accept what time and things I’ve been given instead of always wishing for something different or more.
So, now as I start the new year I’m a new person or at least in attitude. I may not be happy with my life, but I am happy with myself. I’m ready for new experiences and people and events into my life.
