The time sways too fast I’m afraid I might miss everything. I am scared of the fact that one day, when I open my eyes, there is no one but me. The idea of my parents growing older, my best friends walking away to find their great perhaps really scares me. I am afraid to be left behind. Time is a thing that we cannot control. It’s unstoppable. In order to enjoy time, don’t waste any of it. You lost amazing moment of your life if you’re wasting time.
This year, I was busy writing poems for someone who loved prose. I was not the hero of my own story. I let the opinions of people dictate what I should do and what I should be. The footprints of the people who left me utterly bereft was still a fresh page. But nonetheless, 2019 is indeed a year to remember.
How should I sum up my 2019?
Well, it’s teeming with breakthroughs and rough waters. There were healing, forgiveness, letting go, moving forward, and burning bridges. But here’s the list of the months that became the highlight of my year:
- February15- I turned 20
- June- I graduated college and managed to overcome my depression and sickness.
- July- I got my first teaching job in my Alma mater and met my first offspring (Grade 11 Arts and Design, ICT, GAS, and HE).
- September- I passed my board exam which for me was the greatest blessing I’ve received this year.
If 2018 taught me to be grateful, 2019 taught me these; It has taught me to know the value of things, the value of my dreams, and the value of memories. It taught me that if you appreciate small things, you’ll appreciate life, if you appreciate life, you’ll appreciate to live.
Before I bid my goodbye to the year that is about to end, just like last year, I have three words to say.
Thank U, next.
