Tomorrow I celebrate my 20th birthday. I look back over the past year & I don’t regret a thing. If you compare me to this time last year, so much has changed. I’ve addressed the issues in my life & now because of that, I’m a much happier person. More than anything, I know what I want in life & I know what I don’t need in my life.
What did I learn? It’s okay to let go. There’s some friendships you cannot hold onto, especially if the other person doesn’t value it. I also learnt that bad things come in three’s & only then, will I learn that I need to make changes. I learnt I’m not going to meet any guy worth holding onto in the music scene at the moment so it’s about time I give up & focus on my friendships. I also learnt that you shouldn’t make life changing decisions in bad times or just after a big holiday. Decisions need time & lots of it.
Tomorrow I wake up to possibly the best year ahead of me, to date. I will be seeing one of my best friends from NZ over in Sydney in 4 weeks, finishing my certificate for the first time since I dropped out at 16, going to Bali for the first time with my closest Perth friends & then 2 weeks later, I’ll be embarking on my first proper solo backpacking trip around Europe.
I’m looking forward to what’s ahead of me. Let’s see what I’ll learn in the next 12 months.
