I never quite understood as a kid the idea of celebrating a New Year. What was so important about it anyway? The only exciting things I could see were celebrating my birthday again, enjoying summer again, and opening Christmas presents again.
It wasn’t until now that, after some time meditating, I realized that the whole celebration symbolizes a new opportunity to be the best version of yourself. Everything negative that happened on the year can be left there, you got another 365 days to transform the next one into a better one.
I’m leaving my demons in the past. Now, I feel encouraged to do stuff that can help me grow as a person. I’m going to change the way I see myself into a more positive way, I’m going to let go of that pride of mine that has brought me so many conflicts with myself and the people I care about. I’m going to reach harder goals, I want to prove myself I’m capable of things I’d never thought of facing a year ago, I want to discover my hidden abilities and to develop my existing ones.
I have a year to make it work. It’s the last year before I turn into and adult and start focusing on adult things. I will expore more, I will socialize more, I will read more (in fact my main year resolution is to read one hundred books), I will enjoy more every bit of the life I was given.
I’ll also use this website more often, and I’ll probably start blogging properly. Honestly, I’m excited about this, and I also want to invite you to join me in this new journey I’m taking, wether if you’re new here or if you’ve been around for some time, I would really appreciate your support.
Here’s to a 2019 full of new and exciting things for all of us.
