We all change. Through moments and hours and through days and weeks. We all shed our old selves and gradually change into the people we are in this very moment.
It’s the first day of the new year and I still feel exactly the same as I did last night before the ball dropped. Nothing, really, has changed since then.
However, when I look back over the course of the entire last year, I can see that I am no longer who I used to be.
I’ve come a long way in the last 365 days. I’ve learned a few lessons, broke a few hearts, met new people, had my own heart broken, move across the province and through it all, I’ve come to the realization that I need to start making the changes that I want to see, everyday.
For this reason, I could care less about it being a new year. Every single day is the start of a new year and instead of waiting for the end of the year to make resolutions, I’ve decided that I’m going to make every single day a new beginning, with new resolutions. And if I happen to fail at one of my goals one day, I’ll simply wake up the next day and try again. Plain as that.
So to the year 2016 – which I don’t hold any particular grudge against – I say good riddance and to the new year, I welcome you with open arms. I will make you my bitch.
