Hey guys! Welcome back. Blogmas is officially over, and I am back to doing regular posts. If you have any requests, leave them in the comments. Today I wanted to share with you something that has been on my mind quite a bit lately. It’s something that has been true my entire life. As the year comes to a close and I reflect on my past, I realize that there is one thing in my life that I sometimes forget to acknowledge. Even in my darkest moments, life will get better. I have seen some things in my life that I cringe at the thought of. I have gone through things that would break the strongest person. I have been used and hurt by people who were supposed to love me and keep me safe. I’m still experiencing that. But I have learned from past experiences that life gets better.
With every passing year and every passing milestone, my life is getting better. I am letting go of so many toxic people and things that just hurt me. I am decluttering my life and learning how to let go. I am chasing my dreams and finding my passions. My life is becoming my own for the very first time.
But I find myself reflecting on the times that were not so optimistic. I find myself questioning why those things happened and what the purpose of such pain at such a young age was. I really just could not understand it. But the older I get the more I realize that it always gets better. It hurts for a moment, but there is always something good that comes out of it.
If I had not been hurt so much by my family, I wouldn’t have the friends I have now. If I hadn’t been used and hurt I would never understand why it is so important to be kind to those around you. If I had never been taken advantage of, I would never know the significance of appreciating those around me. The truth is, all those dark moments led me to becoming a good person.
I’m not perfect, but I’m not as bad as some. I know that it’s important to appreciate people. It’s important to know your worth and not hold on to people who hold you back or tear you down. I have learned that sometimes the only way to be happy is to let go and move on. Sure it hurts sometimes, but a few days of unhappiness is nothing compared to years of misery.
Life isn’t always fair. Life isn’t always perfect. But we have to see the beauty in what we are doing and where we are. We have to be optimistic because things could change in the blink of an eye. Life will get better. We just have to believe. There are always things to look forward to and dreams to come true. There are always goals that we can work towards and passions that can keep us moving forward. Because even in our darkest moments, life will get better.
I want to take this time to thank every person who made 2018 the year that it was. Whether it is the people who hurt me or the people who helped me, each one of you created great change in my life, and for that I thank you. I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for me both personally and professionally. I can’t wait to see how God’s hand guides me through this next stage in my life and I am glad that you are all going on this journey with me.
