This is the year to be me. It could be for you too.

Dedicated to @sydney

Thank you, so much.

This Year.

by kaylynn

2017 is going to be my year.

For much of my short life, each new year, I have focused on everyone but myself. I'm selfless to a fault. I want everyone happy. I want everyone I love taken care of. I focus so much on them,

I forget about me.

So this year, I'm doing things my way.

I'm getting my driver's permit. I'm volunteering at a senior citizen's home. I'm going on a three week adventure during the summer, without any parents or older siblings.

I'm going to become a published author.

It will happen, this year. Because I'm done putting it off. Saying, oh, I'll do it next year. No. That doesn't cut it anymore.

I won't let fear hold me back.

The fear of rejection. The fear of failure. The fear of not being good enough. No. Not anymore. I'm done. This is my year.

And it could be yours too.

Make 2017 a year to remember.

Thank you, each and every one of you.

My experience here on Commaful has been so wonderful. The support and love is overwhelmingly appreciated. And waking up to 2017 and seeing over 100 followers makes me so happy.

I'd like to especially thank Sydney Liu.

He is such an amazing person, always encouraging us writers and inspiring me to chase my dreams everyday. If you aren't already following him, you should (@sydney) he's truly one of a kind.

I hope everyone has an incredible New Year.

And may the best of luck come to making your dreams come true.
