So here is my rewind of 2023 ...
It was a colorful year, We said goodbye to old place and welcome to new place,
I found the most important things I wished for: silence, solitude, and my own space, I said goodbye to my workplace, expected yet at an unexpected time, welcoming new beginnings in my work life,
What I learned from past years is that it's better to surf than suffer,
So, I applied this, surfing through setbacks, proud moments, and even through being cheated,failed maintaining well-wishes despite distances in relationships,
Got unexpected but Sweeetest call, messages, notifications I waited for,
Took crazy steps just to focus on my peace, I created a bulky block list, distanced myself from many friends, and closed some projects to prioritize peace even more,
Financially, it was a good ride too, better than last year, with each step moving in a more positive direction,
I worked hard and consistently, both physically and mentally, towards physical, mental, philosophical, and materialistic goals,
I spent less time overthinking, less time dwelling on what's gone, and less time on what I could have had,
And more time on what I have, what I am grateful for, what I can do, what I can celebrate, and stepping forward rather than dwelling on what could bring me to tears.
Of course, I made many mistakes but maintained a learning attitude from them, and I'm proud of myself for still keeping going,
Carrying this peace-loving mindset into 2024, even though it may seem arrogant, selfish, or inhumane,
But self-love starts with respecting your peace, and I will learn it more step by step.
2023 was a year of major changes in my life, I welcome 2024 with open arms,with evolving self, ready for more changes, ready to surf!
