No, this is not a post about meaningless resolutions. I mean, who does that seriously anyway? Not me, for sure.
2017 is coming to an end and I am excited to welcome the new year with a renewed hope and a positive outlook that life will work out for the better. This year has been full of challenges (and I will leave it at that). I wouldn’t say it’s the worst year. Just know that working away from home is not the easiest but I am grateful to have friends and family who are always there when you need them, always ready to assist in any way they can. A bit of faith helped too.
This year taught me a lot. But the one thing that I find most valuable is learning not to force things. Not everything you want, you get. Even if you tell me you worked your ass hard in getting something, one has to realize that these efforts are just a small part of a bigger, more complex equation. You can whine and complain all you want but there are more Xs and Ys that contribute to the end result. And the best you can do is to embrace whatever life gives you and try again (if you must) if it doesn’t give you a favorable outcome. Do not waste time contemplating on failures. Just learn to let go and move on. (Yes, exactly like that random quote you see in your Instagram feed…what flows, flows, what crashes, crashes.)
