Do you ever google search the definition of the word growth? Don’t you just want to know the meaning of it? Is it part of us? Within us? Is it a myth? Is it a good trait? Or bad factor even?
This kind of topic is very interesting to talk about. In the past couple of years, I have been aware of myself and how I grow as a person. Before I turned 18, I was a mute. I barely talk and never convey thoughts nor feelings towards other individual like myself. It was tough for me. I was so different. I kept all of it to myself. I tend to just write it all down rather than speaking out loud. Why was I like that? Is it a growing up stage of being a teenager? What is ‘growing up‘ anyway?
I think growing as a person, as individual can be challenging in so many different ways. I’m not saying that growth is a bad thing. All I was trying to put across was that growth has different factor to us individual, as for me this growth made me become a completely different person. Reflecting back of how I was before and now was a completely different person by the way they describe me to others. They would not imagine that could be me. I was known for being stereotypically shy. I guess coming out of my comfort zone made me aware of what I have achieved for the past few years. I was so expressive of my beliefs and passion of being able to influence others. I felt so lucky being able to know what I believe in and what I can capable of doing and how I can challenge myself in order to grow more.
If I am being honest about last year… There was a lot of highs and lows like everybody, I guess? Through heartaches to failures to meeting new people to achieving a ridiculous project with a local band to passing assessments in college to travelling to somewhere new. I would say that 2016 was not too bad except taking away so many incredible artist that I adore and such an inspiration. (((rest in peace))) ☹
In generic, we often over shadow all the negative events that occurs in our life, yet last year highlights me so many positive memories in my life so far and I hope to continue on focusing more beautiful moments rather than negative vibes. Happy Happy New Year! Let’s build another beautiful memories this year!
