I’m a little early, but happy Valentine’s day to all of my followers. Love everyone everyday just as much as you love them on this holiday!
It’s a few days late, but it’s better than never. This new years, for my start of 2014, I don’t want to just focus on getting rid of the negatives in my life or making unreasonable resolutions for myself. I want to focus on the positives that 2013 bestowed me with and how happy I am to be welcoming them into my 2014.
First, I’m grateful for my family. My mom has always been devoted to keeping my family whole and happy. She works both jobs as a mother and a father and honestly, she surpasses many parents who only have the one job. She’s also one of my best friends in the entire world and I don’t know where I would be without her in my life. While my brothers and I don’t always get along, I am constantly thankful for them being around - Whether it’s defending my honor or being overprotective, I know we will always have one another’s backs. And of course, I can’t forget my dog, Zoe because a pet’s love is purely unconditional.
I don’t know where I would be in 2014 without my friends. Especially in my junior year of college, my friends and I have sewn an unbreakable knot, one that will last a lifetime. Each and every one has pulled me back together when I’m in pieces and made my stomach ache with laughter. While my 2013 was a good one, there were many times I had battles to conquer, lessons to learn and they never once left my side. My friends from home have also shown me what it means to have a long-lasting friendship. With these relationships I’ve built with them, it proves to me even more the strength we have to not see each other for months at a time, but the moment together it’s as if we never left one another’s side. I’m eternally grateful for the friendships I’ve maintained for all of these years, both from college and high school and know that these are the type of people my soul was supposed to find.
And finally, my boyfriend, the one person has barely spent any time in my 2013, but I know will leave a lasting impression on my 2014 and hopefully, beyond that. He has shown me what not settling feels like. We balance one another, prove to each other how great we are for one another every moment we spend together. He was the sunshine in my somewhat stormy life. In fact, he still his. His devotion and care have pushed me to follow my dreams, to explore new ideas. We make each other think and learn. I don’t think I could ask for more than what he has given me in our relationship.
But also, 2013 has forced me to take chances. Chances I’m grateful to have sought after, crumbled for, and in turn, built happiness upon.
My 2013 was a roller coaster. And I wouldn’t expect anything less of my journey into 2014.
