Another year is coming to an end. It’s hard to believe that another year is coming to a close. A lot has happened this year. It certainly has for me, and I’m sure many can say the same.
I’ll admit that I am finding myself reflecting on what the year 2018 has brought. I have had my share of ups and downs. Good and bad. Some things I am proud of. While other things I wish I could change. I know that many might feel the same, when looking back at this last year.
At the end of the day, I have to say that I still learned and feel as though I have grown a little in the last year. I’m still not perfect, but I’d still like to think that I have grown. In the last year, I have learned quite a bit of myself, about my ADHD/ADD, and I know what I need to improve. I know a little more about my strengths and my weaknesses. And this is a step in the right direction, in my opinion.
As much as I have made mistakes and will perhaps continue to make them, at least I am learning. I am learning about myself, about life, and about so many different things.
I think that’s what we need to focus on. Sure, sometimes it is difficult to look past the negative stuff. This is something that can be difficult to do, when you have ADHD/ADD. Although it can difficult even if you don’t. My point is that we should try to look past the bad and try and focus on the good and all the things that we’ve learned. There are things that we may want to change or hope will be different in the new year, but we don’t know unless we try and learn from our experiences.
So, maybe 2018 hasn’t always been easy, but I’m still here. I have learned a lot about myself, my ADHD/ADD, and how my brain works. I am a little more prepared for the future. I am a little more prepared for the new year.
I think that this is the important thing. Be proud of the good you accomplish. Take the things you want to change and learn from it. At least, this is my opinion and where I stand.
We’ll have to see what the new year brings!
