January has been amazing.
I’m not jumping to any conclusions here, and I am so afraid that saying this might jinx the fact that I have had a great month at the beginning of the year, but I’m actually looking forward to what this year has in store for me. This month felt like it would go on forever, and I caught myself wishing that this month would never end, because here I was, having the time of my life with my best friend, making memories that I’d probably cherish forever. But all good things must come to an end as is the rule and all I have to say is that I am happy with what this month has brought me.
Today, I’m on my way to make some new friends, meet some old ones and simply catch up. I am not exactly the kind of person who spends a lot of time hanging out with her friends, so me doing this, going for a gathering, is kind of a big deal. I’m not socially awkward or anything, but I do feel left out in big groups. It’s just all in my head, as it has always been. But that doesn’t change the fact that I am really looking forward to meeting all these people. I think it was long overdue, me actually stepping out of the house for once.
Maybe this is me pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Maybe this is me telling myself to start going out again instead of being holed up at home all day long. Either way, I know that this is something I am going to look back at with a smile when I talk about how my year has been. Maybe this is a sign that I should just start taking more leaps of faith because if not right now, then I know I’m going to be left out in the cold wishing that I had done a little more to make memories.
So, at the end of this month of a new decade, I guess what I want to tell you is that you shouldn’t wait around for the good parts to happen because they are horribly unpredictable. You might end up getting all that you wanted, or you could just be waiting for a long, long time. So why not just make the good memories happen? I think we wait so much for the good things to happen, we just end up making ourselves comfortable with all the bad parts. Time to finally break out of that pattern now, isn’t it?
I thought that this trip I took with my best friend would somehow change me. But that isn’t the way things work. Life is short. We could go for what makes us happy and end up not getting exactly what we wanted. But trust me when I say this, we’ll be infinitely better off knowing that we took that chance instead of wondering about ‘what could have been’. We’re going to be happier knowing that we did everything we could. And hey, in case it doesn’t work out, at least you’ll know that you took the effort it takes.
Don’t sit around waiting. I might sound harsh, but it really never works out well. All it ever does is eat away at you and put all kinds of assumptions in your head. So, seize the day, would you?
