2018, you’ve taught me a lot! You’ve changed me a lot too!
You’ve been the year where I did a lot of growing up! Cut my hair (my shield all these years) shorter, added more hi lights, as you kept gifting me with more greys, and gained more wrinkles, but also more wisdom in the process.
I sure made mistakes while you were watching too! Yet you didn’t tell anyone! Thank you for keeping my secrets.
2018, you’ve woken me up everyday, got me out of bed, and tucked me in at night. Your eyes, followed me through, every single day! And now! You are ready to say goodbye. Ready to become history! My history! Everyone’s history!
2018, you were much kinder to me than some of your previous sisters! And I thank you for that!
You have taught me to laugh more, cry less, love more, forgive more, listen more and be more understanding. I can say, I am very grateful, to have become a better version of who I used to be, under your watch.
2018, it wasn’t all smooth sailing! But such is life, and that’s how it will always be!
I stand here, waving you goodbye! The countdown, has already begun! And I can’t help, but feel a deep gratitude for all the lessons, and all that I’ve learnt!
2018, you’ve helped me add more to this scary world! I am so lucky I was able to do that! And I truly hope, that I’ll continue to give light, hope and warmth to others in the upcoming year! And warm up my own heart walking beside them, when the road gets a little lonely for me; and learn from ‘their’ light.
