Another year has gone by and what can I say… Most say time for a new me but that is not how I do it, a new me is born each day that passes and every day is different (I believe that if earth can do it, I surely can too.) Anyway this has been a specially long one that has taught me a lot of things that I will definitely use the rest of my life;
– Working for my money and being broke. After years of getting allowances and pocket money to top up even when I worked, I finally learned the true meaning of money doesn’t grow on trees. I have had days when I come from work and I cannot see straight! Also, being broke is not a myth (seeing negatives on your account is not an easy thing to stomach) On the other hand though, I also realised that being extremely broke is one of the most peaceful states of mind you can have *only if you have a roof over your head though*
– I learnt that it is okay not to be fine and mental health is very important. Once it is affected, everything else will be thrown off course. I spent a lot of time pretending to be happy when I could have come clean. Both to myself and those around me. I’m glad I was finally honest and now I can safely say I am happy even when I still haven’t achieved all that I have set out to achieve.
– Plans change and it is never too late to start over. I thought I was falling behind by starting over until I joined my class. Being one of the youngest made me realise that there is no formula or age for changing the direction you want your life to take. It is all up to you in the end. You create your destiny (if the concept really exists)
– YOU ALWAYS DO YOU! Usually, we are limited by what society thinks of us but after crying on the tube, dancing on the bus and laughing at all the funny stuff I see, I realised, no one actually cares what you do. Especially if it doesn’t affect them. Do what you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to do it but, never forget yourself. At the end of the day, if you are not happy with your actions, you will only have you to answer to. Of course all those that you were trying to please by being uptight will not be there to watch you hate what you did or didn’t do.
All in all, I am glad I am 25! I see where the years have gone and I can fully account for them. I love that I am growing older too and nothing can change my mind about it.
To more years of life💃
