Thank You, 2018

Thank-You-2018

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” – Neil Gaiman

As we bid goodbye to 2018, I would like to say goodbye to the struggles and hardships I faced, because then I was weak and dependent. 2018 was a year of growth and self development. 2018 was the year I realized I am strong and independent.

So before 2018 leaves us, let me just say how grateful I am for all the lessons I’ve learned.

2018 was the year I learned that you can forgive the people who did you wrong without them asking for forgiveness, not because you are weak, but because you understand and you are growing.

2018 was the year I learned to apologize. It wasn’t always easy to ask for forgiveness, but acceptance of one’s mistake is.

2018 was the year I learned to be independent. At the end of the day, no matter how many people are around you, all you have is yourself.

2018 was the year of of self-discovery. I have lived my life in a shell. I have known places based on the books I’ve read and the photos I’ve seen. But this year, I’ve known places and people because I’ve learned to open up myself to others.

2018 was the year I learned to be independently strong. Living away from home was a struggle but I think every struggle was worth it. I see life in a different and better perspective.

Life is full of surprises and life is a gift. Here’s to 2018, here’s to you, here’s to all of us. Thank you for a wonderful year. Goodbye 2018.

Hello, 2019.
