It’s crazy to think that 2017 is nearly over. In only a few short days it’ll be 2018. My mind can’t wrap itself around that idea. Where did all the time go? I could have sworn it was the 90’s just a few years ago. To think about everything I’ve learned and gone through over the years it mind-blowing.
I am a very organized person and this year alone I’ve gone through so much. And I can honestly say 95% of it was not something I had in mind this time last year. It’s clear my life has not gone as planned this past year.
I really thought I’d have a career and an apartment of my own by now. I’d have a car and a couple of cats of my own. My apartment was going to be beautiful and mismatched, just as my bedroom is now. I’d be saving money and planning on going on that next big trip. I’d go out on the weekends and be more interesting than I am now. My closet would be full, I’d be happy and my dreams would be falling into place.
Idealistic and naive I know.
Each thing I did or went through also taught me. But if there is one thing that I have learned this year is that it’s okay if nothing goes as planned. This is not to say I will not continue to freak out when it doesn’t go as I’d hoped, hey, I’m growing.
Other things I’ve learned or experienced this year is…….
My life has been insane and I’m trying to learn to love it. Some days are definitely better than others, but such is life.
How are your year gone? I’d love to hear about it.
