Dear me and you,
Three more sleeps and 2017 will be over. I always feel a little lost at the end of every year. I can’t believe 2017 is almost done. 2017 had started with a lot of expectations and followed with many events. 2017 had been an up and down year with many good things but not less of failures. In overall, I’d say 2017 has been a successful year in almost every aspects.
At work, I did have my down time when things weren’t right at all, when no matter how hard I tried, everything still failed apart. There had been so many times that I was ready to give up, to walk away, to restart all over again. However, I did stay till the end and I wasn’t disappointed at all. I got what I’ve been wanted to do. I was able to move to where I wanted to be. Therefore, 2017 was not a bad year for my career at all.
At home, my mom and aunts did have a chance to come to Canada with us. It was a really big deal with my family since they never had a chance to visit anywhere outside of Southeast Asia. We definitely had a great time together as a big family. I did have a lot of travelling with my family to show them around and to introduce them to my 2nd hometown.
With friends, I did make some new friends. Not many but I think it’s good enough. I’d rather have a small circle of friends but I know them well than hanging out with a bunch of people that I can barely remember them when the night is over. I guess it’s true that the older you are, the harder to make friends.
Last but not the least, relationship. It’s quite late but I think I’m relieved now that I realized him and I both walked out of the past and moved on to opposite directions. There’s no more “we”, “ours”, “us” but I feel strangely good about that. I know I should’ve said this years ago, but now is exactly the time when I feel I can finally move on. Thank you for all the good and bad, thank you for all the memories, thank you for all the things you brought. Thank you and good bye, the friend and lover of my youth.
When I let go of something, I realize something new is coming my way. I don’t know what it is or which way it will lead me to. The only thing I can do is just being myself and enjoying life as much as I can, because you only live once.
2017 is almost gone and 2018 is waiting to come, I hope that the new year will come with new things, will bring me to new places and let me meet new friends. I wish that everyone will have a good and fortunate year ahead.
All the best to you and me.
