Cheers to 2017

I used to just scroll through whenever something about 2016 being the year of realizing would come up on my screen, but somehow half way through the year, I couldn't agree more. 

2016 was one of those years that just so happened to fall perfectly when i needed it the most. Toward the beginning of the year there was so many expectations on my shoulders. Expectations that were of my own. I seemed to be so worried about every aspect of life and what direction I was headed and whether or not the decisions I was making were the right ones. 

It only took one day, toward the end of the year where I realized everything you ever worried about... it didn't matter. 

I think one of the biggest lessons I learned was, stop neglecting and just live. 

I lost one of the most influential people in my life, and that was probably the thing that did it for me. I realized how precious life really is and how quickly it's taken away from you. I was neglecting so much to be there for other people who at the end of the day gave no shits about what I was going through. 

I had kind of lost hope in those 3 months. I felt like I had not only lost something so close to heart, but having no control over my mental health was beginning to take over. 

Can I just say, having people who genuinely cared to show me how much I had grown really did help me. That's when I realized that.. friendships are going to come and go. Regardless of the case, you have to be thankful for each individual who takes/took part in your life, because it always teaches you a lesson… 

Be selfish with your time, don't let people make you choose between relationships, and most of all you don't have to give it your all if someone isn't willing to meet you halfway in any sort of friendship or relationship. 

I've finally made it to the age where I've kind of began accepting my direction in life. I've realized that I have certain goals and things on my mind that even those in my life may not understand or agree with. I know the kind of people I want to have in my life, and most of all I know what makes ME happy. 

I’m not a huge believer in resolutions, so all I’m looking forward to is to living a healthy life this year day by day. 

thank you to everyone who made 2016 an unforgettable year.
