Subject: Saying Goodbye To 2016
Date: 1 Jan 2017

" A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor" Dear 2016, You've finally come to an end. You've brought plenty of sadness, anger, stress, joy, happiness, growth, and love within the year. It's finally time to say goodbye. I want to let go of all the things that has brought negativity over the past year. Whether it be someone or something. I am not afraid to let go of someone that's dragging me down, now would be the best time to do it. " New year, New me" that yearly saying, said every year. Yet, no one is really getting the concept of it. Just because there is a new year does not mean there is a new you. For there to be a "new you", you must change your ways, routines, your self-morals. How you think about the world can impact your daily life. I am prepared to welcome new changes, new lessons, and new adventures. I am also open to new opportunities to grow emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. In the year to come, I hope I make mistakes. If you make mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, pushing yourself, living, changing yourself, and your world. How many of us walk around being weighed down by the baggage of our journey? Dr. Steve Maraboli says, " You cant possibly embrace that new relationship, that new companion, that new career, that new friendship, or that new life you want while you're still holding on to the baggage of the last one. Let go and allow yourself to embrace what is waiting for you right at your feet." With the change in calendar there will be new changes, new hopes, and new dreams. I wish you peace, love, and laughter. Happy New Years. Welcome to 2017.
