Starting Bloganuary


Happiest New Year!

Here’s hoping 2022 treats with us kindness ❤

I am so glad to have come across this challenge. I didn’t participate in any challenges last year and I’m glad I can participate in one, before this year’s A-Z.

What is Bloganuary?

You get a daily prompt for all of January and that’s it. Your post has to be about the prompt. Just ensure you use the #bloganuary tag on your post. Since it’s a community challenge, I’m excited to visit a lot of other blogs.

Day 1 prompt: What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Dear Me,

I know you're going through a hard time now. And that sucks. 

All you can do is watch it happen to you and not do anything, which makes it suck even more. 

Here's the thing though, you get through it. 

You made your mistakes and you learnt your lessons. You lost people but you got some few good ones by your side. You lost yourself and after a while you ended up finding yourself again. 
But you did good kid. Those people that stuck by you? They're still here. So you definitely did something right. 

The funny part is, now that you, I got older- in a roundabout way, similar things have happened. 
It's like some weird kind of history repeating itself. But only this time it hit me harder. I got lost for a longer time. I think I am still lost. And you stopped letting your people in.  Sure the circumstances are no longer the same. But the impact these things have had on me, I am still processing them. 

I realise this was supposed to be a later for you kid, but I think it's better for me to think about you. To re-learn from you. That's so weird. But that seems on brand for me. 

Bottom line- Be you kiddo. You're brave. Braver than I am.
