Now that another year has come to an end, it really has me thinking about things that I want to work on or things that I want to learn this upcoming 2017. With all the craziness that had happened in 2016, I must say it has been one of the most thoughtful and interesting years so far. It really opened up my eyes to see the truth in people and life overall. I started out the year with soul searching and finding a great purpose in my life.
I established the blog and promised myself to never give up even if I know one person is reading it. Challenging times of the year opened up my eyes to see my surrounding more noticeably and understand the fact that people are not always who they make themselves out to be. I learned about whom I could always count on and trust and whom I couldn’t. In a course of living you learn how to protect yourself in it and learn that “when you stop trying to change others and work on changing yourself, your world changes for the better”. You come to the conclusion that you will never succeed in changing anyone who believes they have no flaws and no need of being changed. I learned to have self-respect for myself and learn how to say NO to people even though they might get offended. But guess what? I am way more focus on my career goals and personal life.
The biggest lesson I learned in 2016 is GRATITUDE. I truly learned the meaning that life will stop in different places and we have to be GREATFUL for every stop along the way. By losing my grandfather, I learned nothing is forever so I have to make the best out of every minute of my life with the great people around me who I’m so grateful to have in my life. One of the biggest gratitude I took from Matin’s incident is that after what he has been through, I’m Grateful he is very strong and healthy today. Hard times made our bond and relationship stronger, opened up our eyes to some realities in life which made us be more focus and passionate about our personal and mutual goals. It taught me that respect has to be earned and it’s a two-way street and doesn’t necessarily depends on your age. Practicing and having passionate gratitude has impacted my life in a very positive way. Some negativity made me open up my heart more and have some great people, who inspire me every time I talk to them, come to my life and change it completely.
I have to say my biggest resolution of 2017 is taking all the knowledge, experiences, and life lessons of this year as my life guidance in 2017 and definitely be a better Parmida next year.
I hope we all are making room in our hearts to love each other in 2017!
Happy New Years Loves and Thanks for the great support! <3 <3
