Today marks the first day of a new year, a new chapter in our book, some of us might say, but of course we all know it’s just a continuation of the path we have already started.
2017 was an accomplishment for me, albeit negative at first but in the end everything worked out. Stress almost left my life when I got my driving license this month last year. If you’ve been following my social media or my blogposts you’ll know how this was the very source of my mental and spiritual agony. However, after getting passed that obstacle good karma did its wonder. I found a job and life became stable.
2017 was also full of high and low curves, like any other year right? C‘est la vie is what the French would say. Personally, there were times when negativity came knocking on my door, and I let it in, we are allowed to feel emotionally weak, we are humans after all, that’s why I don’t regret it when that happens. It’s important to get up though, you can’t let negativity reside in you for a long time, when this happens I search for things I love doing, maybe writing blogposts, reading, listening to music or exercising, your passion calms the mind and wards off negative vibes.
Ultimately, I’m thankful for the patience and goals achieved in 2017, I am far from perfection, or the idea of perfection because perfection does not exist, I still have flaws like each and every one of us but being a better person is a lifetime work and 2017 was just a minuscule part of the work done. Current goals are yet to achieve and new ones await, I welcome 2018 with the utmost expectation and hopefully it will be fruitful like 2017 had been.
How did 2017 treat you?
