I don’t think I understood what a roller coaster truly was until I embarked on a journey titled 2017.
This is the first year where I have hardened so much: physically, emotionally and mentally. Sure the year was filled with many, many highs. But i think every test I endured, every painstaking new challenge that was thrown at me; and every time life forced me to my knees as a pressure test to see if I would fall or stand, have taught me the most.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for a new year.
So here’s to 2018:
A year where I become stronger – mentally, physically and emotionally.
A year where i let go and free myself from restriction.
A year where i challenge myself to become a better person.
A year where i work harder, hustle more and truly commit to the things I’m passionate about.
A year where I strive to achieve more, professionally and academically.
A year that will see more writing, photography and the embarkation of new experiences.
A year where I challenge myself to push out of my comfort zones. I want to join a self defence class. I want to volunteer at events. I want to give back to the community and give those who haven’t been born with the privilege I was born into, a true experience of living life to the fullest.
A year where tears aren’t from sadness or anger, but rather happiness. Yes, I will be crying at every wedding I attend.
So here’s to 2018. Let’s dive out of this absolute shit show I’ve been on.
2017, you taught me a lot. But I think it’s time to experience and maybe put learning on the back burner.
