That’s a wrap.
As this year comes to a close, I am thinking back to the end of last year, 2016. I can recall seeing lots of posts on social media where people were saying, “I’m so done with 2016; who’s ready for 2016 to be over; 2016 sucked,” – essentially.
I remember thinking to myself, “Wow, I had a good year. I can’t imagine thinking that I was done with a year.”
Now, as we are nearing the end of 2017, I can say that I am done with this year. Like, it was a really great year in a lot of ways, but it also had a few important bad times, too. I was speaking with my boss’s sister, at work, and telling her about some of the things I have gone through this year. I actually started crying to her in our front lobby, because I was just feeling the weight of everything that had happened in the last few months.
For those of you who don’t know, I work at an academic enrichment center, so I am blessed with being surrounded by beautiful children every day. So, one of our students was in the lobby when I started crying. She came and hugged me from behind, while my boss’s sister hugged me.
My student went and sat back down and she said, “Wow, I don’t want to grow up! It seems so stressful!” My boss’s sister and I laughed. She started telling her to enjoy her time as a kid, because when she’s an adult, she’ll be wishing for her childhood days. Her eyes widened and she looked worried.
I said, “No, no. It’s not that bad. I really love being an adult.” Then I added, “Basically every day was really good, except for the few that weren’t.”
And then the lobby went silent and I looked at my reflection in the window.
This week I was dealing with some more stresses. My parents had to spend $400 on new tires for me, and then there was an issue with my tuition at school, so my classes have been temporarily suspended.
I have been stressed, but I have really seen how lucky I am to have such awesome parents. I am so blessed that the Universe, the angels, and Spirit are looking out for me and making things happen for my highest good – even if I don’t see it at first.
So, this is a reminder that things always work out for the best. This is a reminder to show gratitude for everything you have, every day. And this is a reminder that the Universe and the Spirit world always have your back.
Don’t dwell in the darkness – seek the light.
With love and light,
