Bruh, has this been the longest year was it just me? Like, I feel like Dolores O’Riordan (lead singer of The Cranberries) died two or three years ago. Nope; this year. Anyway, it’s been a long year…
For some, it’s been a great year. For others, it’s been real shitty.
I definitely didn’t love this year. It’s been rough. However, I do believe, good year or otherwise, each offers something to learn. Yeah, it may have been super awful, but are you a stronger person because of it? Most likely. And that’s what’s important.
While on Pinterest, as I am everyday now, damn, I found a page putting the year into review. So I decided to fill it out:
I’m pretty sure I missed some significant moments, but this is what stood out.
Did I have a mental breakdown earlier this year? Absolutely. Did I lose my dog I’ve had since I was 13? Yep. Was I unwelcomely invited to reminisce about the worst year of my life? Oh yeah. Was there a financial scare? Ooh boy, was there.
Man, all that was just awful.
did I also see Fall Out Boy live, completing a bucket list goal for me? Yep! Did I go to the Markiplier’s You’re Welcome Tour? Yes, sir! Did I go to California, visiting friends and family, and being introduced to the coolest bookstore ever? Hell, yeah! Did one of my plays get read by actors? Best moment ever, honestly!
While there were a lot of shortcomings about this year, there were also some great moments, too. We have to take the bad with the good.
For 2019, let’s be more honest, and more expressive!
Happy New Year, my beautiful people.
May 2019 be a shining star of a year for you. That is my hope for you.
