Thank you 2015. You almost broke me, but well, you didn’t. I came out stronger, more determined, more anchored in my faith, in my identity. You showed me just how strong I really am. You showed me just how hopeless life can be when you don’t have something to anchor you to truth. You showed me truth about what is right, what I need, and what I don’t need. You showed me who isn’t right, who I need, and who I don’t need. You showed me that no matter what others do or the levels they stoop to to try and hurt, control, or manipulate, I still have a choice. I answer to no one. I am my own person responsible for me. That others can only control me if I let them. That you can’t place value on worthless opinions. That you have to take ownership and responsibility for your part and then forgive yourself, and others. That the things you may do aren’t an indication of who you are. That feelings are a great guide but should NOT be your ultimate compass. And LOVE ALWAYS WINS! So in honor of all that hardship and, in turn, all that growth, I say thank you and goodbye. Goodbye to unhealthy mindsets and patterns.
Goodbye to toxic and unfruitful relationships.
Goodbye to hopelessness.
Goodbye to worry.
Goodbye to fear.
Goodbye to shame and unforgiveness.
Goodbye to anything that keeps me from living out my true destiny and calling and keeps part of me locked away.
2016, I am coming for you with a vengeance. Let’s have fun! #freedom!!!
