What I Lived And Learned In 2021

I wrote the following on one of my social media platforms with a group of friend pictures that have been in my 2021 chapter. The post was just for my friends (not a public post). It was a reminder to me and for them about what I’ve lived and what I’ve learned in 2021.

💫I keep saying “Yesterday is gone, it doesn’t exist and it’s just a memory.” Indeed, it doesn’t exist and all we have is memories. Memories that I am grateful for in my life. These people and memories got me through 2021.

💔2021 was one of the most bittersweet years for me ever. I had my heart broken twice but through my heartbreaks, I learned who loved me including God.

💞I learned that we don’t have a promise of tomorrow. Each person that passed this year had plans. They had plans for birthdays, Christmas, vacations, and life. Sadly they did not get to do their plan. And through losing so many friends I know we gotta live for today. Check your bucket list, make that phone call, visit that friend, don’t live with regrets because you didn’t do it.

🙏🏼 I’m so thankful for each experience even the heartbreaking ones. It was the heartbreaking ones that led me to my awakening, to my new life. And when I look back on the memories and how each person played an intricate role, I cry tears of joy because they listened to their intuition, to that voice inside, to the God in them.

📣 In my mother’s words “if I die tonight”, I leave you this…live your best life. Don’t wait! Support your friends, you can never have too many supporters. Match your words and actions. If you say you love then show your love. Listen to that voice inside of you like your life depends on it because sometimes it does. Remember everyone is wounded and they don’t have to admit it. Just love them anyway the best you can. Forgive those who don’t ask for forgiveness. Sometimes closure is only a word and we never get it. Take care of yourself! Your mental health is so important! Don’t forget to be still so you can hear. Pray, meditate and listen, it’s how you learn your path and what God is trying to tell you. And be thankful for everything. Rain makes rainbows 🌈.

Wishing you the best of everything in 2022. 💫🥂🎉

Love to all ❤️ DH
