Dear 2016...

Thank you for the lessons
Thank you for the freedom
Thank you for the new friendships
Thank you for the experience
Thank you for the opportunity to learn more about myself than I ever thought possible
Thank you for the people who were there in my times of need. I am eternally grateful to those who held my hand, held me back, held me up, and wiped away the tears.
Thank you for the time spent with my father, it was almost like a holiday had the circumstances not been what they were. Regardless, that time together was special and I will treasure it always.
Thank you for bringing me home
Thank you for showing me that no great change is made without great sacrifice
Thank you for closer relationships with my family
Thank you for all that you were, because I can now look back from where I am and see that if anything had happened in a different way, I wouldn't be where I am right now. And where I am right now is right where I wanted to be.
Thank you for the positive changes I now see in myself
Above all, thank you for helping me prove to myself just how capable I really am.

Here's to a year of endings, and here's to welcoming in a year of new beginnings. My heart, mind, and soul are grateful for the time I have with my children, my family, my friends, and I have every faith in 2017 to shine.

Sincerely yours,

How I got back in control of my anxiety
