I’m glad to see the back end of this year, my lovely girl. It’s been a hard one. I’ve dragged myself back through so many years of things I could have done differently. I think the truth is – all roads would have led to the same place eventually, anyway. Regrets are an appalling waste of energy and I’m exhausted on the last day of this year.
If I could give you some advice for the coming year, I’d tell you to love the people who treat you with kindness and forget the ones that don’t. Forgive yourself and others, it’s cathartic. Then just hold on, keep moving forward and stop looking behind. You’ll get to where you’re really supposed to be. It’s not fate, it’s just life. Live it and cherish it while you have it.
My plan is to laugh as much as I can, eat that piece of coconut cake, keep learning that new language, lace up those hiking shoes and just get out and live my life.
Yep, this is me putting the oxygen mask on myself first so I can live another day and maybe be of some help to someone else in the process.
I miss you so much, and that will never change.
