2016 was by far one of the worst years of my life. Now I am not one to be negative, but this year was FULL of challenges. I spent the year being broke, gaining weight, crying, being depressed, losing people, not doing well in school, etc. This year was so bad that I did not even want to live anymore. I lost all my hope and joy. I hit rock bottom.
I believe that everything happens for a reason and some of the shitty things that happened this year were for a reason. Although I do not know what the reasons are yet, I know one day I will understand. Hitting rock bottom has extremely motivated me to change my life.
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
I am so happy and relieved that the New Year is finally here. I am excited to spend 2017 focusing on ME. Focusing on my mind, body, soul, and life. This is not the “New Year New Me” bullshit, but its the fact that this year I learned and grew SO much from my hardships that I am ready for change. For the last 4 years I have been focusing on other people and their problems that I have totally lost myself. At least I can realize that.
