The past few years I have slept my way into the new year, but this year I stayed awake. Although I did not do anything to celebrate per say, I did get to watch fireworks from my couch. 🙂 I am truly looking forward to all that 2023 has to offer.
I mean, last year was really good for me even though nothing really went as planned. Things were extremely chaotic. From my father getting sick and being admitted to the hospital and then released into a rehabilitation center, to being out of work for months, my father being readmitted to the hospital again the day before Thanksgiving, hosting Thanksgiving at my place for the first time, losing my great grandma on Christmas Eve and all the other things that happened in between.
Totally emotionally draining, not gonna lie. However, 2022 revealed some very important things to me that have helped me to not only gain control over my life but to also gain mental clarity around life. I am so much more at peace with everything than I have ever been. This mental shift is the reason that I am not going into the new year feeling shorted or as if I am leaving 2022 the same way I started it. I believe that everything I experienced last year was to create a space for me to enter into my next new life the woman I want to be.
I am welcoming 2023 with open arms and am excited for the new experiences and relationships that await.
