To my year of everything,
I’m sorry I was disappointed when you came.
I’m sorry I didn’t show much attention to you when everyone was celebrating
I’m sorry I did not even bother to be thankful that you gave me another chance.
I’m sorry that I’ve taken for granted all the lessons you were trying to teach me.
I’m sorry that I was too eager to get over you and start all over again.
Lastly, I’m sorry that I only realize now when it’s almost over.
You have brought a humble beginning to my years of existence, you know what they say,
People appreciates what they’ve lost but not what they have.
I was blinded by my dreams, got too ambitious and entirely forgot if I fully lived you.
Could you blame?
You threw me surprises that are beyond my imagination.
I could have sworn if I get a penny everytime something happens to me I’d be a millionaire by now.
All your ups and downs,
moments of weakness,
disappointments and expectations,
everything that I went through,..
I get over it. Didn’t I?
The days when everything was falling apart, when everything seems wrong, the days that I thought there was no way out… I made it, didn’t I?
And I’m still in that moment, I will go through it again for sure, there will be much bigger problems but I’d like to take this moment to thank you.
Thank you, because you have made me a stronger person. Fierce. Vulnerable and even more appreciative that I will ever be.
You kept in the ground so that I could appreciate what I’m stepping on. I’m so grateful for that.
I’m thankful for the love of my family, you kept them safe and healthy. That is even enough for me. The gift of friendship that is continuously growing. New friends that will be with me for more years to come and the good old friends that have been with me since day one. These are the things that matters the most. I could have not lasted a day without them, so thank you.
Perhaps, you are the eye opener, you boldly showed me my worth and what I deserve. In my search to a true meaning of happiness you unveil that it does not come easy, that I have to work for it every single time and most importantly that it does not come from anyone but right within me.
2017, I thank God the most for an extraordinary life. What a blessing it has been to be alive and be loved everyday.
You have been a blessing to everyone, I hope whoever is reading this is feeling the same.
