So it's already the second month of 2018 and one could say we're still pretty early in the year. Still too early to lose that weight gained in December (and January!). Still too early for crushed dreams, for losing sleep, for burning out, for drained energy, for giving up and all sorts of stuff if you catch my drift. But life doesn't always go the way you want it to so it's never too early for anything actually.
They say shit happens. I prefer to see it as opportunities for change and growth. For reflecting on yourself, for having better goals, for healing and loving yourself more, for understanding and forgiveness. For better time management. For taking things slow and for always praying to God for a good pathway in this life and in the hereafter. For ultimately our time on this earth is short and we should always just make the most of the time we have and take in every hardship and obstacle with open arms.
Of course I say this to myself as well in light of these past few months being somewhat of a testing time. I could lament about things here but I'm making myself adopt a more positive outlook on things and have faith in God's plans for me.
So if anyone of you out there are already having a hard time at the start of the year I hope you manage to get through all the trials and tribulations presented to you with patience and strength. After all what is this life if not without a little drama to spice things up.
