It's the first of January 2017.
I don't really know where to begin..
2016 was filled with so much negativity, all over the world.
But even tho it was a bad year, I made some great memories. For example, I went to a concert for the first time in my life. And I started to hang out with new people and they ended up being the best people I've ever met. Now they mean everything to me.
2016 was a year filled with darkness but many lessons too.
I fell in love and I got heartbroken. I got heartbroken by people who weren't even mine. I'm asking God what I've done to deserve this much pain.. Maybe it's my fault I'm in so much pain? I don't know. But I believe that God has a plan and I believe that everything happens for a reason. I read a quote once that said "if the hurt comes
so will the happiness" ( - rupi kaur )
I just have to believe in that quote and I have to trust God.
I've fallen so many times in 2016 but I've gotten up. I'm still here, I'm still breathing.
Nothing really changes, except the year and month. But the feeling you get, like it's a fresh new start. They say every day is like a fresh new start even tho it may not always feel like that. But when the year changes you feel like it's really a new start.
What I like about new year is that now I can leave 2016 in the past, I can move on and I can do something with 2017. In 2015 and 2016 I was so incredibly depressed and lost. Yes, I still am. I'm actually getting worse and worse. But don't worry. This year I will do something about it. You'll see.
But there's something I want to tell you. I maybe can't help myself but I want to help you with the words I say.
If 2016 sucked for you, don't worry. It's in the past, forget it if you want to. Move on. Do something with 2017. Don't look back. Don't look back at your mistakes and moments you don't want to remember. Leave it all in 2016. Get on with 2017.
You don't have to make any New Year's Resolutions. In my opinion, I think New Year's Resolutions are stressful.
But make sure to set up some goals for 2017 and don't stop until you reach those goals.
Make memories, take lots of pictures, paint, get to know new people, read new books, laugh until you cry, sing as loud as you want, do not care about people who judge you, get up early to watch the sunrise, stay up late to look at stars, smile, smile at strangers, give hugs, tell people you love them, do things that scare you, take chances, tell your crush you like him/her, dance in the rain, wear whatever you want, get out of your comfort zone, spend time with people you love, don't give up, stay strong and stay positive.
Make 2017 the best year yet. Make it a year to remember.
I love you all. *hugs*
