This is the end . . . Hold your breath and count to ten. Or rather, countdown from ten. As is customary at midnight. However, we still have a few hours left in this expiring year and we can pay our respects. 2017 wasn’t as bad as 2016 but it came with some major lessons and tests. Some that are still on. And there were some beautiful blessings as well, Alhamdulillah. For the first time in a long time I’m not closing a year with remorse or regret or sadness, just with understanding and growth. Knowing what whatever happened was meant to and needed, even if sometimes unwanted. And looking forward to the next one to improve on myself and my life. Realistically and with intent.
So I’m looking forward to proving to myself I can do anything I set my mind to and to not giving up on myself. To being and doing better, not just more. To new adventures and triumphs, Inshallah. And wishing you all a prosperous new year full of whatever happiness you’re seeking. Bye 2017, hello future.
