Approaching the end of the year has had me in deep thought, reflecting back upon the year and what a shit show it’s been……..
I really had high hopes for this year….well when I say high hopes – I mean I was actually convinced this year would be ‘THE’ year. I guess, we all say that at some point right?
This year has been a bit of a nothing year. Stagnant. Repetitive. Same. Old. Shit. Don’t get me wrong I have had some good times, but I’d say the downs kinda out weighed them.
I’ve faced things I wish I hadn’t had too and have had many battles and challenges thrown my way. I’ve been hurt, shat on, let down (the list goes on, lol)
But looking back now in this moment, I wouldn’t change any of it. Because this year has made me grow. Personally and emotionally. It has reminded me that there is NOTHING in this life that we cannot get over nor through.
I have learnt to not allow the shit I might face to affect who I am negatively. Instead I will withdraw the lesson from it and positively allow it to change me, for the better. I will not allow things to break me. Instead I will grow through what I go through.
This year has taught me traits about myself that I didn’t even know I had and that I am much stronger than I ever gave myself credit for.
The shit of this year hasn’t defeated me. Instead it’s made me stand taller, laugh louder, love harder and feel stronger. This year has been a lesson and I hope next year will be the game changer.
Moral of the story is; We are not always dealt the cards we want in life, but even the shit ones end up benefiting us in some way. Even if you don’t see it yet.
