So Long 2015 + New Year's Eve Playlist

3:36 PM

If there's one thing that 2015 has definitely taught me, it's that some things are meant to be left behind. Friendships, relationships, regrets, grudges, memories ... It's okay to leave these in the past. In fact, if they're tearing you up on the inside, they should definitely be left in the past. Don't hold onto something that's just going to wind up hurting you.

Holding on to things that are only doing you harm isn't good for your well being. 

This past year has taught me a lot about myself and others.

While I am definitely one of those people who hate mushy, gushy New Year's pieces, this is probably going to be one of those. So, leave now if you don't want to read it. 

This past year has been a whirlwind of emotions and crazy events. I ended at one school and began at another, that I never thought that I'd succeed in. I branched out, I joined a ton of different clubs and really pushed myself academically and socially, which is not something I do often. 

I really worked on myself this last half of the year, and let me tell you that it's okay to be selfish. In fact, I encourage it. Because when you're in your twenties, that is definitely the time that you should be selfish. Focus on yourself. Make yourself happy. Love yourself. Spoil yourself, even. Because this is the youngest you're ever going to be right now, and these years are going to fly by so fast. They already are flying by so fast. 

I said goodbye to a lot of people this year, one which I really never thought I'd ever have to say goodbye to. Sometimes you leave people behind because it's the best for the both of you, even when it hurts. But if you're reading this, just know that I will always love you and every memory we have together is forever embedded in my mind and I don't regret a single thing. 

And while I said goodbye to a lot of people, I made so many new friends this year and I love them all. I've met so many amazing people at Rider and even at work that I can't imagine my life without them. New doors are always opening, keep that in mind. 

I don't really make resolutions. I don't promise that in a year I will be a better person, but I know I will definitely be different. Happier, less stressed, I hope. The past couple of New Year's, I've made a habit of writing down everything I want to leave behind in the past year and burn it, and I've found that to be a lot more therapeutic. So if you are one of those people like me who don't like resolutions, I suggest you write down everything you want to leave behind. Please only burn them if you have adult supervision and a fire extinguisher. 

So I leave you with my last blog post of the year 2015, a crazy year indeed, and this little playlist of some important songs to me to ring in 2016. Be safe, have fun. Love you all.
