Going into this year I got a fortune it said “Any rough times are behind you.” 2015 was a really hard, but great year for me. This past year I was focused too much on pleasing other people and not pleasing myself. When in that mindset you think too much about what the people around you will think. It doesn’t matter. This year I’m living my life for me and no one else. In the past I have done certain things or held back because that’s what other people in my life wanted. Well not anymore! It doesn’t make you feel good to always be living in someone’s shadow always doing things for them and not you. This year is a fresh start, and I’m going to be the me I want to be. 2016 will be a year filled with positivity and happiness. I met some of my best friends this year and have made some memories I’ll never forget. I can’t wait to see what this year holds. I was reading something earlier and it said “What a wonderful thought is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet.” It is true we don’t know what lies in our future, but as long as we live in the moment we will be our happiest. This is what I’m looking for in 2016 to be truly the happiest I’ve ever been…to experience new things I never have, live my life fearlessly, and to know the feeling of what it is to love and be loved.
