If I have learned anything this year, it is that I won’t ever be ready for what life throws at me. I won’t have the right words when it counts; I won’t know what to choose when fate itself is staring me down. But not I know I don’t always need to have the right answer.
I’ve learned I can go on waiting for something, sustained by hope and nothing more—or I can put it aside and shrug my shoulders. Bravely accept the fact that I cannot keep my heart safe any more than I can stop love from taking everything from.
I have learned to stop saying yes when I don’t mean it—to live as authentically as I know how. TO allow the tips of my fingers to skirt the darkness, as long as I remember to keep my eyes fixed on the light. And as one door opens and another closes, I will move forward with the knowledge that unlike so many others, I have another year ahead of me—another shot at making it all the way around the sun, and a chance to get it right this time round.
Good Morning to my Canadian and United States readers and followers and Happy New Year! It is time to say hello to 2018 and goodbye to the last shitty, crazy, and also the best last 12 months; 2017.
I could not have said it better than this writer quoted above.
I wish you all a Happy New Year!
