I don't even know where to begin. 2016 felt boring, without it actually being boring. It sound weird, I know, but it was a tough year and I got to learn a lot about myself which I hope I will continue to do during 2017.
I didn't do much in 2016. I didn't travel, I didn't lose any weight, or lear how to juggle like I wanted to. I didn't read 50 books, didn't even break 20. In the last half of the year I didn't go the movies except for Star Wars. I didn't really make any new friends, but all of that is okay. Why?
Because I didn't want to travel. I got asked several times if I wanted to come on trips but I didn't. I wanted to stay home, I wanted to be alone, and I was okay watching the apartment for a week. I didn't lose any weight, but I didn't really gain that much either. I stopped with the juggling thing in February so, didn't count on that. I didn't wanna read. I didn't have the focus to grasp the words in the books I was reading so why force it? And I didn't have the to go to the movies or make any new friends because I actually got a job, but that's also okay.
Because this year, I connected with one of my best friends from High School, and I got to the spent more time then I ever expected with the man in my life and we have since the begging of last year become stronger then ever. I became friends with someone who is on the other side of the atlantic ocean, and that I care for oh so very much. I got to spend some time with some awesome people that I now would call my friends. I grew closer to people, and I took a step back from some. But the point is: I love them all, in different ways, and they all bring something special to my life.
And I grew as a person. My anxiety took a beating last year, I'm not gonna lie, but I alos learned how to handle it better. I learned that I am who I am, and even tough I still have a hard time loving myself, I do accept that. I accept who I am in this moment, even though a change is happening within me. I am who I am.
So I'm gonna say thank you to 2016, you were hard on me but I'm thankful for that. I'm hoping that I will learn just as much from 2017, and I'm ready for a new year.
