accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative

2014 was a struggle.

This year had some of the hardest times of my life, but I’m thankful for everything that’s happened.  I’m entering 2015 stronger, happier, and healthier than I’ve ever been, and I have the troubles and awfulness of 2014 to thank for that.  It was a necessary struggle, one that I should have undertaken years ago.

If 2014 was the year of bad times and sadness, I want 2015 to be a year filled with good times and happiness.  I wrote in a previous post that I wouldn’t be making a resolution this year, but I’d like to change that, I think.  There is too much negativity in my life, and there’s no reason to keep it around.  This year I want to get rid of all the negative things and people that take away from my happiness and cause me grief.  I’ve spent the past year fighting for my health and happiness, why should I keep anything around me that threatens that?

My crappy job, my half-assed “friends”, my eating disorder?  I’ve run out of reasons to keep any of them around.  It’s time to trade them in for more positive experiences, people, and habits.

I have high hopes for 2015.  I think my recovery journey is finally getting on track, and I have so many wonderful plans for the coming year.  I’m excited about life, and even that is a pretty cool feeling.

2014 taught me a lot and I’m all the better for it, no matter how terrible things may have been at times.  With only a day left to the year, however, I’ll admit that I’m glad to see it gone.  Happier, healthier, more wonderful days are ahead!
