A new year gives a chance for us to start fresh, to close the book and begin with a new one. This year however has been different. I was not particularly keen on setting goals I certainly knew I wouldn't be able to achieve. So I decided to simply let it go. To decide as we go along where the tides of life bring me. Be more realistic of things I can achieve. Since twenty-seventeen had been utterly difficult and depressing, I thought nothing more could topple me over but boy, I was wrong. There is nothing in life that gets easier as we go along. We simply get stronger and our breaking point can only get lifted higher. That's what they say and that's what life has thus far taught me. I haven't lived much but I've picked up a couple of things here and there - the usual don't trust anyone, you're all you've got, always double-check on your sources (I seriously think that my English teacher was trying to warn us on this even back then), integrity is everything, your greatest idea may not be a good idea after all but most importantly, learn to forgive yourself for not knowing what is so obvious in a hindsight but don't pity yourself enough to keep holding you back. Yeap, been there guys. I’ve been binge-watching Suits from Season 1 all over again after coming back from Cambodia and something Harvey taught me,
"When you're backed against the wall, break the god damn thing down."
To my fellow warriors fighting on a daily basis on this grand scheme called life. Here's to us.
