Hello 2019. (only 13 days late…)

It’s been awhile since I’ve written.

Reason being, I’ve spent a lot of time self-reflecting. Self-reflecting on 2018, things that happened (or didn’t happen), my own self and especially on how I handled things. There were times in 2018 when I thought I was making the right decision and jumped head first into situations that turned out not to be so great. I definitely realize that now, thanks to hearing “I told you so” a million times. But because of those situations, I wouldn’t be sitting here now making a list on how to better myself for this year and for the years to come.

Thinking of the future can be extremely scary for most people, especially when you dwell on the past. As for me and most, the past hangs over me like a dark cloud. Always dreary. Always there. It makes moving forward from anything so much harder.

“I should’ve said this.”

“I should’ve did this.”

“I should’ve bought this.”

“I shouldn’t have gone here.”

“I shouldn’t have called them.”

“I shouldn’t have procrastinated that.”

 

But I did.

You did.

It happened.

It happened how it should’ve happened.

It made who we are and what we are today.

Even if it was a mistake then, it could be a blessing in the future.

So that’s my goal for this year.

Looking forward to the future and all that comes with it. The good, the bad, the ugly.

Happy New Year!
