This post is long due and I’m so sorry, I don’t even have an excuse.
Yeah, so I’m finally seventeen and I’ve got big plans for the new age. Some plans that didn’t quite come through the last age and some new ones as well.
‘Sixteen’ wasn’t an easy age I must say. But it wasn’t the least bit surprising to me. I remember one of my letters to God where sort of predicted it anyway. I left high school, got into the university, lost friends, understood that sometimes you just have to explain to your parents instead of always nodding yes, validated my ‘having trust issues’, doubted myself, confessed long hidden feelings, accepted the rejection, gotten mad unexplainable mood swings and all.
All that aside, I’m a year older now even if it feels like nothing’s changed. I’m anticipating challenges with victories alongside. But my greatest wish these coming 365 days is to get to know God more and he draws me closer to him as well. Because I believe a healthy relationship with God brings peace and fulfillment.
