As this year is reaching to its end, I’m reaching to the end of an era.

Sometimes years go by without realizing how much you’ve changed, how much you’ve accomplished, how much you’ve been through and how much you’ve gained.

We change.

Through people, through new experiences, through good days and bad, through little moments you’ve wished time could magically stop and take time to enjoy more out of something or someone, or through moments you’ve wished time could skip to the end.

Everything we live and experience is gain.

Everything works eventually to our benefit.

And as the year is about to end, I want to end it properly with a closure, because every story and every book deserves an epilogue.

This year has brought to me many things. Things I’ve desired and things I didn’t knew I needed. Most of all this year taught me valuable lessons. Sometimes in hard ways.

It taught me that it’s ok to fall apart sometimes.

It taught me that sometimes things don’t work out the way they’re supposed to, but you have to make new ways-unique ways.

This year, as the year before it and further back , I was focused on finding love, true love.

Instead I found something more valuable. Although I couldn’t find my one true love, I found a path, a path to self-love.

And as an older, wiser version of my-self I could only say , do more of what makes your eyes watery, your heart vibrate and always try to keep your soul fed.

Cause when your soul starves it’s easier to you lose your path, to abandon your passion your humanity.

Try to have fun daily. Laugh and make someone smile.

Give to someone in need, even if that someone is you, your worst enemy or your best friend.

Inspire and get inspired. Express yourself in any way your heart body and soul desires.

Be more honest and stay focused.

Always check what you’ve become and question your-self “Is this what I wanted to be? Is this who I want to become?” . If not, struggle to be better.

Be kind to everyone especially to strangers and those who’ve been close to you. Surprise your loved ones with small gifts or small gestures. Show them you care.

Confront the world with positive attitude and be more optimistic.

And if you find yourself in darker places, be patient cause eventually light will appear.

Don’t stare the abyss, don’t gaze into darkness cause it will reflect on your soul.

On your darkest days , take strength from your greatest moments.

Don’t despair. Sometimes everything falls apart or falls in place and there’s nothing you can do to change it.

So as you grow up, aligned with the earth, remember those things and try to be the best version of your-self.

Built the person you want to become but not in the ruins of others.

Be patient , enjoy the little things in life and try to make the most out of anything.

Here’s to you 2014.

With every sip of champagne, the bottle becomes more and more hollow and I become more and more blissed and filled with joy.

It took it all in, I’ve made it through and finished another stage.

Goodbye and here’s to another one.

Hopefully better, with more laughter, more tears of joy and more strangers to fall in love with.
