Past and Future, memories and hopes

The first month of the New Year is halfway through. Nevertheless, I still thought I’d share what I feel I’ve achieved last year and I hope to pursue this one.

I was inspired to write this post when I read Lisa Jakub’s ‘Looking back: lessons of 2015’. Once I finished her piece, I immediately thought to myself that nothing interesting had crossed my path last year. But then, in less than 30 seconds, I’d found that I had so much to be thankful for. So here’s a glimpse of why I’m proud of 2015:

I graduated from school with very good marks.
I began studying something I love in a new environment.
I’ve met few, but nice people thus far.
I wrote my first short story.
I resumed playing a sport that I love.
I took the first step to doing something that was very difficult for me to even consider.

And I hope to continue on this path.

I hope to meet new people, I hope to keep writing and communicating my emotions to others. I hope to lead a healthy life improving in a sport I’ve always been fond of, I hope to always be thankful because no matter how much we’re struggling with things, when we really think about it, we find that we have infinite reasons to be grateful.

Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the pain, sometimes I feel I don’t understand anymore. But sometimes, also, I am overwhelmed by that list of reasons that shows me how much I’ve accomplished.
