2019 — I’m Ready To Let You Go
Each year that we experience is a new chapter in the book that is the story of our lives. I know that 2019 has been a strange and difficult year for many people, and this has been especially true for me.
I’m ready for something new. I’m ready to leave the past behind me where it belongs and embrace a new way of living in 2020. A new decade, a fresh opportunity, a new perspective on life.
I know that we can’t control the things that happen to us, and I know that the difficulties and challenges that we go through are as full of meaning and opportunity for growth as the beautiful things that we experience. That’s why I try not to dwell on the turbulence of life any more than I need to – because I know it’s just as significant as the times when it’s all clear sailing.
This year has taught me a lot. It’s been tough at times, but it’s made me into a better person. I’m ending this year feeling grateful, excited, and happy to be alive.
So 2019, I’m ready to move on.
It’s okay that you weren’t quite the year that I expected you to be. I’ve accepted that you taught me lessons that I needed to learn, when I needed to learn them, even if they might have been difficult to swallow at the time. I forgive you for the pain, the tears, and the sleepless nights; but I’m ready for something different.
Thank you for the memories, and for the lessons that I’ve learned. You showed me the power that I’ve had locked away inside of me for so long. You showed me the meaning of resilience, of perseverance, of what it takes to make the experience of life something to be celebrated and enjoyed rather than feared.
You gave out good times as well as bad. I’ve lived, laughed, and loved a lot this year, and that’s all that I could ever ask for. I’ve met new people, had new experiences, and made new memories that will last me a lifetime.
You might not have been what I was hoping for, but you were exactly what I needed.
Still, I’m sort of glad to see you go. I’m ready for something else, something new. I’m ready for a year full of adventure and fulfilling my potential, a year where I unlock my inner passion and channel it into life in every way that I can.
So 2019, here’s to you. The best of times and the worst of times. 2020, let’s see what you have in store for me. I know that no matter what, it will be one hell of a ride.
