My Daily Life

Goodbye 2016

do widzenia 2016, I figured that with the hours I have left in this wonderful year that I can make the most of it by reminiscing on all of the wonderful things that as happened with my life this year.

This year to me is one that I will remember for the rest of my life and I can only hope and pray that you will have a year in your life that you’ll never forget.

I thought that I would never forget the year my grandmother died, I never did, but 2016 sticks out in the ginormous book called my life.

2016 is the year I figured out who I was created to be, me.

It may not seem perfect but I’m striving to be who I am supposed to be.

I walked into 2016 as the girl who, didn’t have friends. The girl who had no idea what she capable of, no idea what gifts I had.

Going into 2016 I had issues with keeping myself afloat, with worry and doubt. I may worry from time to time but that’s exactly what makes us human right?

2016 was the year I realized that I like public speaking, I mean you can’t shut me up, right?

It took me awhile to write it because at first I didn’t even know where to start.

It was the year I threw myself out there and participated in Fine Arts, I was so worried and doubtful going into it. I had thought that I did horrible since it was my first time. Then after all the hours of not wanting to open the envelope I did and figured out that I was just one point from nationals.

It was the year I learned to be vulnerable and to trust people because keeping a wall up all the time was unhealthy.

It was the year I reconnected with family and old friends and I couldn’t be happier or grateful for them.

I learned to be a kid. As silly as that sounds to you, I’ve never had the chance to, until this year.

It was also the year I found Bono after he mysteriously disappeared from my math classroom.

It was a year where Cleveland didn’t make mistakes they brought home two championships and the Indians showed us what it meant to give it your all.

I felt loved and accepted so much this year thanks to the people in my life.

2016 is the year I realized that I am important, and I am loved.

I was reminded that I still don’t mess with Clowns.

The year I made friends of all ages, because sometimes maturity means the world to me.

I was reminded that the sweat, blood, and tears put into schoolwork pays off.

These last few month have been the worst for me though, but I was reassured and for the first time in my life genuinely appreciated for what I do daily. Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who made this undoubtedly one of the best years of my short life and I can only pray that I will be blessed with many more to come.

Come at me 2017.
