so today is the last day of the year. three hundred and sixty-five days since we last had a new year. that seems like a long time ago, but then again it seems as though it has flown by, right?!
time is literally going by so fast that it makes me panic. this year was a decent year for me. health wise it was good for myself and family so i cannot complain in that aspect, but for me mentally it was pretty rough. i am hoping this next year is much better. people who are very healthy mentally do not realize how mental health affects overall wellbeing and life of someone who struggles. because i had a lot going on with my emotions and thoughts, it affected every.single.freaking.day.of.spring.summer.fall.and.winter. whew.
i definitely had awesome days, but there were also lots of other awful days thrown in there that probably affected my family as well. life isn't easy and i know we all have our issues, but i am one that handles my negativity differently that lot unfortunately. thank god for medication, but i also need to learn some coping mechanisms and new skills in a few areas.
although i mentioned how dreary the year was, i thought of five great things that did happen. sure there are many more, but these happened to just pop into my head first!
1 - getaway to jamaica and florida.
2 - parents moving to a new house.
3 - getting a new car.
4 - finding new creative outlets.
5 - chopping off my hair & getting a new tattoo.
enjoy today and be safe if you go out tonite. remember not to drink and drive (:
