2017: What a year that was!

“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.” 

(Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God)

For me, 2016 was the year that asked questions and 2017 was the one that answered.

I was 25 years old and still immature in 2016 when I had to deal with my first heartbreak. Left with nothing but questions, I kept chasing for a closure and looked stupid. I had to learn people come and go the hard way.

But 2017 was redemption

The past year, I believe, is appointed by God to teach me about acceptance. It is the first thing to letting go, moving on, and growing up. It’s either you accept you aren’t the one in control or choose to struggle pointlessly.

And I’ll admit it was difficult, being the girl used to getting what she wants. So I took each blow of my 2016 issues one by one, let myself hurt intensely until I become solid. I looked at pain eye to eye til it no longer dissipates my spirit.

2017 made a woman out of the girl I was.

2017 taught me I am as strong as I want to be.

2017 not only made me smarter, but instilled wisdom in me.

2017 reminded I am a diamond some people can’t afford.

And most importantly, 2017 made me excited for 2018 – certain it can only get better.

No regrets, just love. 

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”  (Rev 21:5, NKJV)

New Year Post by yours truly!

As you can see, my breakup was life-changing and energy draining, so for 2017, I’ll be focusing on myself again.

They say the best time to reform your life is right after a breakup because you’re full of angst and you become more mature. This coming year, I want to make better decisions, as I just turned 25 and I feel like I can’t call myself a little girl anymore.

Your 20s should be the years you work the hardest so you can build an empire by your 30s. Don’t you agree?
