When I was little, sometimes my mom would talk to me about her day. My mother is a very busy woman and she can get stressed easily, so those conversations were usually a little bit of a rant session for her. I don’t know if she thought I was actually listening or that I would understand, but still she talked. When she was done, I would simply say something like I’m sorry you are feeling this way, or I hope tomorrow is better. She always seemed a little surprised when I would respond that way. She would smile and say one of the most genuine thank you's I have ever heard.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! The start of new year should be all about reflecting on the past year and asking yourself what you could improve. New year new me, right? This year is all about you and finding new ways to be the best person you can be for yourself.
Something that has been weighing on my mind over the past year is the importance of connections and communication with the people around me. I realized through the past decade that I cannot get through this obstacle challenge called life alone, especially when I am in the dark.
