Today I sit reflecting on the events of the past. I am not dwelling in self-pity or asking myself irrelevant questions. Quite the contrary; the vision of my future has been neatly placed before me. My future is guaranteed to be fulfilling, spiritual, and satisfying. I realize that it’s solely my responsibility to nurture myself.

I developed a false sense of desire believing I needed to be in a committed relationship to feel complete. I know that I don’t need to have a man to make me feel complete. Would I like to have one? Yes, of course. I don’t think I will ever get used to living alone, but what’s more frightening is to imagine growing old and dying alone.

I am able to differentiate the wants, from the needs. Everything will fall in place; all I need to do is take care of my mind, body, and soul.

This is the passion in my life goals. I know that I am blessed.

There is a new road ahead this year, and I finally see it.
