It’s 2016. A brand new start for everyone who wish for a change or somehow, a break in their lives. It’s that bittersweet part of aiming to let go of whatever made us felt miserable and sorry during the past years and time to embrace what’s new and coming. But really, how easy or rather hard it is to let go of what we’ve been used to?
Honestly,we know we have a lot of things we should have let go since last year but find it difficult to do so. I mean, how do you simply forget especially if it’s something which made a total difference in your life (good or bad impact in life that is). But then, now is the time to move on, on whatever bad things that happened in the past few years. After all, we won’t be happy if we’d just let something bother us.
It’s time to give ourselves a chance. We’ve been busy doing a lot of things just like everyone else and sometimes forget that we need to slow down and take all the time savoring all the goodness we get. It’s that sentimental moment where we thought that, “Hey, easy and give yourself a break.” I for myself, know that at this age I should be all up working on a career but I also realized that I don’t want to grow old working and working. At this young age, I know I should experience more of the world because I don’t know if I’m still going to enjoy them when I am much, much older. Go for an adventure, tick the bucket list and do what you think is impossible! Try to ask yourself, if it’s going to be your last day on Earth, what would you rather be doing but make sure that your mind is relaxed as you do this(I thought about sky or cliff diving but when I thought about it after a long day at work, I just thought about maybe cuddling or sleeping in the sofa with the Bi, hashtag, lover. LOL)
It’s time to give people a chance. If in case we were not able to show how much we care about certain people in our lives just because we’re busy, I think it’s just right to at least let them feel how we feel towards them and how grateful we are to have them. We do not know until when they are going to stay or keep up with us so I guess letting them know would help or at least keep them around.
It’s time to forgive. Forgive ourselves and the others. It may not be something you can do in a snap but if you give it a chance, little by little, it will eventually heal your heart. To be honest, I don’t know how to forgive a woman who tried flirting with my guy a few years back but hey, it’s been years and I am still trying to laugh it off. It’s not easy but I’m trying really, really hard and I guess I’m doing good. Just. Don’t. Let. Me. See. Her. Again. Period. LOL.
It’s time to be contented. Love what you have and what you are getting. It’s not about getting big or small surprises, or getting what you want. Everything that’s happening around you happens for a reason and whatever reason that is, it may be up for your own good so stick to whatever you got and be happy! There are times that I am being frustrated with my job as a nurse but whenever I see that small note I made when I haven’t tried the hospital job yet which says, “I’m going to be a staff nurse at _____ or _____ this 2015! #Believe” (okay, that sounds corny, but yeah), I realized that I’m actually getting what I want and I am just not contented. So to be fair to myself, I know I should embrace what I’m getting because at one point in my life, I wished for it.
Life is full of surprises and it goes on every year. I think it’s just fair to keep whatever good things we have gained on the previous years and let go of whatever brought misery but make sure we embrace the lessons we got because we deserved it. #NewLifeGoalsfor2016? Bring it on!
