You’ve been a mess, really. All over the place, with lows that hit hard, and few highs that look bleak comparably.
Let’s not recount the hardships and losses, but rather focus on the good things that happened.
I am grateful for all my friends, the new ones, the ones I have known for half of my life, the ones that I had lost and that came back this year, and the ones that are far away and still never make me question our bond.
I am thankful for the experiences, the trips, the food, and the safety that I got to enjoy over the past 365 days. Even most troubles and problems have taught me one or two lessons that I will keep with me from now on.
But honestly – I am glad this year, with all its bad news, is over.
I welcome the new year with open arms and an open heart. I have expectations, and hopes for 2018 and I hope that it will come with more luck and fewer problems than the last. A few things have already been set into motion, and my excitement for most of them are through the roof.
Happy New Year everybody!
Good luck with your resolutions, and if you give up, just start fresh the next day!
New year, fresh start, old resolutions.
