I was expecting more of you, but you were one huge disappointment! You took a lot from me, more than I had anticipated. I may have lost everything material that I worked so hard to get, but I'm thankful that I still have my family, even though now we are miles apart thanks to you!
A lot has happened since you came along. I've cried a lot but I've also learned a lot. You taught me to expect the unexpected from people. You taught me that not everyone I know is my friend. You reminded me to be grateful every day for everything by showing me the hard way not to take anything for granted. You taught me patience by showing me that there are things in life that require more time than others, but a whole year… really?
You showed me that money isn't everything but I already knew that. Just let me tell you one thing… money is a necessity, bitch! Your life lessons taught me a lot about myself too and opened my eyes to talents I didn’t know I had. It has been rough, everything has changed, I'm nowhere near the same person I was last year. I've always been strong but never realized how strong, until you came along.
I end the year with my hands empty ready to receive God’s blessings, because I deserve more than the lessons you gave me.
2017 you have been one for the books, you rank as bad as or even worse than the year I met my ex, but eventually, I will forget you as well.
I am glad your time is up, so goodbye 2017, I had enough!!
My future may still look dim, but with my strong faith in God just watch me make it to the top...
2018: Ready or not, here I come!
