In 2015, I made a timeline for things I want to accomplish in the following years. I took it out today thinking, that Im so far behind, only to realize how much I've done from it. Getting my other cat sterilized? Done. Quit smoking? Done. Started boxing? Done. Found my perfect guy? Done. Published my first book? Done.
I can actually feel like I've done something good with my life for the past few years. Till 2013 my life was a freaking mess. Lot of bad things there that I won't go deeper into now. But the changes that has followed? Oh wow.
Graduated as a chef, animal attendant, and as a security guard. Had a few jobs from different fields for experience. Quit drugs, drinking and eventually smoking. Changed the way I live, to match the way I feel, meaning (usually) healthy vegetarian diet, exercise for mind and body and living more eco-friendly. I Keep evolving with my crafts and have been selling them nicely. And I actually have been travelling, like I always wanted.
So today, I made a new timeline, to bring together the things from the old list that I haven't done yet, and to update the new things. As a symbol of accomplishment, I'm burning the old timeline.
Even though I feel that I've come a long way, there is still work to do. I take that journey on with a full heart. Shall the next year be as good as this one.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne.
