2015 wasn't my hardest year, but it was definitely not easy. I was struggling in every ways imaginable. 1 year later, my life was slowly falling into place. It took a LOT of hard work, physically, mentally, and spiritually. For the next few years, though there was hard moments, overall I was very happy with my life. Looking back I can see how all the hard lessons I have been through have shaped me, created my path, and made me stronger. Looking back I am grateful I didn't give up all the times I wanted to and I'm grateful I kept going instead of sliding into the familiar and comfortable. Although it's uncomfortable and not easy, discomfort is actual our friend. I remember in 2015 looking back to 2010. Remembering how my life was then and how radically different. And back to 2005 and how crazy different it was from 2010. Back to 2000 and so on, I never would have thought my life would turn out the way it is now. But, if I had known how hard it would be, would I have kept going? Fast forward to 2020. Our lives are definitely not what I would have thought they'd be. I am pushing all the edges of my discomfort zones. However, I'm still happier now then I was before (like 95% of the time anyways). I can feel the love and support from the people around me. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can feel how this turn of events will make me push back, fight harder, and rise up stronger. I can see how this will propel me into the next 5 years. How about you?
