2016 was a year of stumbling. It was a year of worn out hearts and of tired eyes; It was a year of heartbreaks, tragedies, and of loss that felt like it was the end of the world.
2016 was a year of working so hard and feeling like you were getting nowhere. It was a year of working tirelessly and still feeling like a failure. 2016 was a year spent ignoring what we all truly wanted; ignoring our gut instincts; and settling for anything less than we deserve.
But thanks to 2016, you can enter 2017 so much smarter, and so much wiser. And for once, you know what you want and what you want to achieve.
2017 will be the year that you actually focus on yourself. It is the year that you finally do what you put off for the longest time. You will do things that you love, and you will experience plenty of happiness, joy, hope, and liberation.
2017 will be the year that you learn to forgive others, and also yourself. You will untie relationships that benefit you, and cut all toxic relationships that drown you. You will meet new people who will add light and colour into your life. They will lift you up, push your forward, and inspire you to become a better person.
2017 will be the year where you finally can look in the mirror and love every part of you. Let 2017 be the year where you ignore body standards, and you finally acknowledge how special you are. And no matter your relationship status, your income amount, the kind of car you drive, the kind of home you live in and the kind of family you come from, you know in your heart that you are so incredibly worthy.
You are worthy of greatness. You are worthy of the dreams that you have planted deep into your heart. You are worthy of the greatest love in the world. You are worthy of love for yourself.
You will leave behind everything in 2016, and start a brand new chapter in 2017.
You know what, I got a good feeling about 2017 — It will be a year of zero regrets. It will be a year that things will happen, and it will exceed all expectations. It will be a year of breathing in every single moment, and of truly living.
