Celebrate A Decade With Me

Celebrate A Decade With Me. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In this post, I want to you guys celebrate a decade with me. My life in the past decade has not been a great one. I honestly feel like I have spent the last decade fighting for my life. Trust me it was not an easy journey but I made it.

Wow, what a decade of ups and downs it has been. To be honest, the decade has been all about growth. Do I have any regret? No! I believe everything that has happened to me, was not my fault! I think the only thing I did wrong was being the ‘Good Girl’ all the time. You know the respectful one, who is navie sometimes, always smiling and happy and joyful. And yeah, I was blind to how the world really does work. I thought everything was nice all the time, but people just kept taking advantages.

Oh well, there’s nothing we can do about the past. We have entered a new decade 2020, so best to look to the future and learn from the mistakes. We should learn to forgive and forget about the past. At the end of the day, the past was just a percentage of your future.
