You know, it’s that time of the year.
The time when you spend your day looking back and reflecting, and everything.
The time of the year when you sit back and wonder just what it is that you’ve done for yourself and how you’ve become better than you were last year. Honestly, I am pretty proud of the things I’ve achieved this year, even if they don’t mean a lot to others. But that’s the thing about achievements: your only real competition is with yourself. There were plenty of times when I felt like giving up and just putting my works aside because I had somehow lost interest in working on them any further, but I’m happy to see how, in spite of all that, I’ve come up with a bunch of work that I am actually proud of.
I have genuinely spent the entire year learning new things and exploring myself as an artist and as a writer. I couldn’t be more proud of the fact that every milestone achieved this year has been done unexpectedly. My goal wasn’t some xyz milestone. In fact, I had no idea whether my work would grow the way it has in the last year. But I am very happy with where I am right now. Granted, my sanity is wavering because I feel a little stuck sometimes and I feel like I’m running out of words to say, but hey, at least I have my art to keep me company.
It’s not as if things are magically going to reset once the clock rings the midnight in, but people hold on to the hope that it will be a clean slate and a chance to turn things around, and in the end, that’s what matters the most. It’s beautiful to see people still have hope that things will get better. And I think that we should just let people believe that they can turn things around as they ring a new year in. It has been a very hard time and it’s alright for people to do whatever makes them feel happy and have faith.
Here’s hoping that you’re being kinder and more patient with yourself. You’ve got this.
