I know 2018 isn’t quite over just yet, but I have to tell you; I can’t wait to see what happens for you next year.
I mean, take a look around. I know this year was full of ups and downs. Sometimes you may have wondered if you should even get out of bed, much less do anything productive. Other times you felt on top of the world, and you never wanted it to end. This year may have built you up some days and completely knocked the wind out of you on others and yet look at you. You’re still here.
You have accomplished so much, you know? Maybe you don’t feel as though you’ve done enough, but you’ve done more than you want to give yourself credit for. Even if it was just making through another day and into the next one? It counts. God, it counts.
I can’t wait to see what happens for you in 2019, because you did so much in 2018, more than anyone could’ve imagined. People are more proud of you than you realize, if you’d take a minute to let them tell you so. You had so many ideas this year, so many goals that you hope to achieve. Maybe you succeeded, maybe you didn’t, and maybe some of those things are still a work in progress. I know that this upcoming year has the potential to be your best yet, or even your worst. Yet I know you’re going to handle it the best ways you know how. I know you may fall to the ground, but you will get back up again, because that’s just who you are. I can’t wait to watch as you push yourself a step closer to becoming the kind of person you truly want to be. Even if it’s a baby step. Even if some days it feels more like a crawl.
I can’t wait to watch you not just focus on your own achievements, but others as well. I can’t wait to see what happens as you open your heart to others and allow them to feel your warmth and sincerity, your genuine appreciation for them. I can’t wait to see as those people are the ones lifting you up and offering a hand when you’re feeling your absolute lowest.
I can’t wait to see what happens when you finally take that leap of faith you’ve been hesitant about, in whatever direction that may be. I can’t wait to watch as you soar to heights no one, including yourself, thought you could reach. You have so much inside of you that is screaming to get out, and I know you feel it too. I know you want to let it out, too.
I can’t wait to see what happens for you in 2019 because we know that so much is possible, and we are capable of doing so much. But you? You have the capacity to change this whole world, and I can’t wait to watch you try.
I can’t wait to be right here next to you as you do.
