Since I started this blog in the summer, my journey is far from over, even though 2013 is ending. While writing this post I am aware that ‘365 days’ provides only a snapshot of mental ‘illness’ and ‘recovery’. Recovery is a concept that has no end; we are always recovering (always coping). 365 days is simply a time frame in which to document growth. A span of time that holds no judgement. I don’t think I could have picked a better time in my life to start this project. I am young, but feel old, and I am only just beginning to really connect with myself and others. In 2014, I will turn 21, I will love, I will hate, and I will continue existing. I will still spend too much time on the internet and I will still have moments where I don’t want to get out of bed. If next year is harder or easier than the last, I will not be harder or easier on myself. I will simply work on loving myself; ‘craziness’ and all.
Here’s to a messy and exciting 2014.
Thanks for reading.
