One thing about today I wish I knew one year ago



Dear 2015 Duckie,

Guess what?  Even with your hopeful and positive attitude, you're not going to get as far as you think you will by 2016.  Harsh, I know, but you're used to it so I know you don't take it personally.  It's not entirely your fault because you're gonna get some mean ass migraines that will take a lot out of you, so be prepared for that.  Also, you're gonna get a bout of gloominess after the summer ends which will put you in such a funk that you will lose interest in everything and have a hard time pulling yourself out of it.  Actually, you're still feeling it now as you're typing this so try not to burn yourself out during the summer months and hopefully this won't happen.

2016 isn't all bad, though.  You'll have some fun, spend time with friends, create and learn new things.  You won't have reached all your goals, but you'll grow so much as a person from all the experiences you will face that it won't feel like a waste of a year.  Don't let the negatives and gloominess smother that hopeful and positive attitude, no matter how much you want to crawl under the covers and stay in bed.

I guess what I'm saying is:  keep your head up, kiddo.  Things won't be spectacular, but that doesn't mean you should give up.  Continue progressing and moving forward, even if it's at a slower pace than you'd like.

Peace out.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your gloominess and migraines. I think sometimes it is good to slow down. I think our bodies have a way of telling us this. I was in a similar situation last year. I do hope you keep your head up and keep going.

  2. Oh, I relate to this SO MUCH. Sorry it's been such a hard year--but you've got a great attitude about it. I'm still working on the part where I don't see this year in my professional life as a total disaster, and trying to find the good in what's happened (or, really, not happened) on that front. Keep keeping your head up!

  3. Migraines can be so dang debilitating :( But I love how gentle you're being with yourself. Every year is a learning process and some are much better, and some are much worse, than others. It's crazy how we truly never know what a year will hold.
