- For every one thing that you are unhappy with, there are a couple of other things that you can be grateful for.
In the past year, I have survived the heartbreak that comes along with the end of a quasi long term relationship. In the same year, I was also shown that THAT heartbreak passes. And if despite all that has happened, i can find a way to be happy and okay again, then i will always be able to make a point to choose to be happy rather than glum, no matter what happens.
In the past year, I have sat in circles (of friends, with friends), singing and talking (about nothing, everything and anything in between). I have loved and felt loved. I have read and written. I have smiled, and more importantly, I laughed : a lot, uncontrollably, with weird facial expressions, at places i shouldn't have been laughing.
And these made me realize that I had people around me -
to sing with
to talk with
to read to
to write about
to smile at, and,
to laugh at/with.
In the past year, I have learnt not to ignore the voices in my head. They might sound like nutcases most of the time, but those nutcases know what they're talking about man!
In the past year, i was taught about Acceptance. Just because you don't understand something, it doesn't mean that it wasn't the best thing that should happen to you.
In the past year, i found out the importance of being graceful when you receive something. Be it a good or a bad something. And even more so when you give something. Give sincerely, receive gracefully (and graciously)!
My goodness, just listen to the tone of this blogpost! The year has certainly taught me how to be a granny! It's just gonna sound draggy, whatever I write beyond this point. So i'm gonna stop now.
24, bring it on.
