Today marks the last day of the year and I have to admit, I couldn’t be happier to say goodbye to 2014. This year had its few ups but when it came to the downs, they took the whole cake and silverware.

I won’t go into the personal details of it but I will say a lot was taken from me, more than enough was thrown at me and there were times I felt like I would never get out of this rut I’ve been in since May of this year. Yes, that’s a very long time to be constantly knocked down. The ups I felt were not permanent nor enough to make the downs feel less important. However, I read my horoscope every day and just reading the words of “a future dream will become a reality upon the year’s end” gave me the slightest determination to keep the faith.

Not gonna lie, I’m the best when it comes to masking my feelings. What I’ve been through I would never wish on my worst enemy but throughout it all, I recognized who would remain in my life and who wouldn’t stick around. Sometimes a person’s silent presence speaks louder than any spoken word and the people you believed would be there til the end, despite your behavior or coping methods, might disappoint you. But as the arrival of 2015 is only a few hours away, the idea of a fresh start and clean slate couldn’t come at a better time for me. I’m ready to leave all of the pain of 2014 in the past and make 2015 MY YEAR. I think I deserve it.

I hope anyone who can relate to what I’ve put out here feels more confident in his or her belief that things will get better. Once you’ve hit bottom, the only way you can go is up :] Have a safe and wonderful time tonight my loves! See ya next year! Shop similar below:

    This year has been great for me in a lot of ways, and bad for me in a lot of ways. I just ended a 2 year relationship (Actually wrote about it in my post today after avoiding it for a few weeks). But I’m ready to face the new year too. Thanks for sharing this, I hope next year is wonderful for you!
