How I See It: Hello 2017
2016 was a year full of lessons for me. I spent most of the year trying to figure out who I was, where I wanted to go, and questioning what I was doing with this life. It was the first full year I spent away from my family. There were many nights spent staying awake, questioning every decision that lead me here.
It was a very difficult year – probably the most difficult I have ever experienced. It was both mentally and physically draining. It got to a point where I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, and how I was going to go on. Months would pass by where I didn’t write a single word, and I just didn’t have the energy or motivation to do it. I stopped reading; I let my hobbies fade away. I complained about everything, and I found myself showing hatred more than kindness. Sometimes we hit a brick wall, and I think 2016 was the year I finally hit mine.
