The end of another year. The end of another decade. 2019 had been an eventful year to say the least, and there is a part of me that is happy to leave it behind. This year has not been kind to me, but through it all I’ve come out a better person. I’m not sure if I’m happy with my life at this time. Maybe I wish I had more friends or a better job or more money. Whatever it is, I don’t have it just yet. But maybe that’s okay. Maybe with the next year and decade I can have so much more than I ever imagined. I can have experiences, make connections, follow my dreams, and so much more. I can no longer hold onto the past and the people in it. All I can do is live in the present and press on. I want my life to be the best that it can be. I want that more than anything. I hope that 2020 brings many joys to my life and the lives of others. If God is listening, I want Him to know that I will continue to try my best and that I’m thankful for the life He’s given me: I hope He knows that I’m not giving up.
