It will end in praise…
That is what He said; I have to learn to trust Him better really.
It is 12:55 AM and I have heard from my family and my close friends so I have a breather.
You see, today is my birthday and I have a lot to be thankful for, and just in case I had forgotten, my family and friends have reminded me of how thankful I should be. You know how sometimes you don’t really know what you have, or have achieved until you sit down and put everything into perspective? That’s exactly how I feel right now and it is quite overwhelming.
[This post was supposed to go up on my birthday, which was the 10th, but I must have been caught up in the entire birthday madness that I sent in just a draft, typical.]
On to the good stuff,then:
I started this year like every typical person, making resolutions and trying to stick with them and boy were they a lot. However, most of them centered on my career and finding myself. I had lost myself for a bit, drowning in my own uncertainty and self-doubt and I needed to drag myself out of the hole I dug myself into. In 2017, people! I did! Everyone always says to me: “Oh Daisy I’m so proud of you and the woman you are becoming,” and this year I became that woman. I found myself, I found my purpose and most especially, I actively pursued my dreams. I seized every opportunity that came my way, even the ones that didn’t knock really, they were just passing by my neighborhood, I grabbed them with both hands, lol no time please.
2017 had her good and bad but I have chosen to reflect on the good because they outnumber the bad. I moved houses, (finally!) and wrote a professional exam (finally again lol, still waiting on the results so fingers crossed). These were the most important things on my list of very important things for this year and I’m more than grateful for achieving them.
I am happy.
Genuinely happy too. It has been a while; I’ve missed it.
I am content.
With who I am, with what I have and with who I am becoming.
I would list all the things I achieved this year but I don’t want to bore you more than I already have. However, it did end in praise, I should have known better.
So on this day, I’m grateful for life, for love and for family (and for food, because let’s be honest food is bae).
For you reading this because we made it to the end of the year.
For 2018 because I believe we have an amazing year ahead of us.
