Let 2017 be the time in your life where you can look at your past and acknowledge that you can’t take anything back, no matter how much you want to. Let your goodbye with him be final. Let your story end. Let it be.

How do I tell them that after all these years, you’re still the only thing I could ever love more than myself.

Stop worrying about things you can’t ever change. There is no use worrying so much about things you will never be able to take back or change. Instead, focus on today and do your best. That is all anyone can ask of you.

We say we are only human, and that we are weak because we are breakable. But my dear, we all break sometimes, but we always can find a way to be reborn. We always can find a way to keep going.

As I say a goodbye to 2016, I will say goodbye to you too. You, the man who changed my life. You, the man who changed my heart. You, the man who showed me how to love.

Let 2017 be the year you stop telling yourself you can’t do it. The year you stop telling yourself that you aren’t worth that job, or that boy, or that life. Let 2017 be the year you decide that you are worthy.

2017, I pray you are the year that everything changes. The year that the hopeless can hope, the year that the unlovable can love, and the year the lonely can finally find company.

The way they smile at you, will make everything ok again. The way they speak to you, will make you realize how much a part of you has missed being truly looked at. The way they laugh at your casual conversation will make you want to see the world from a different light.

If you feel that it’s right, don’t try to stop yourself. If you feel like it’s love, don’t run away. If you feel that you are truly falling, don’t convince yourself that it’s not a good idea.
