So I was driving somewhere today (that is, yesterday) and American Authors' "Best Day of My Life" came on the radio. I hadn't heard the song in a while - since it hit its peak of popularity in early 2014 - but I really like it. And here's why: it's about perspective. This is gonna be the best day of my life, because I'm going to treat it like it is. And guess what? Tomorrow is also gonna be the best day of my life, and so is the day after that. If I keep my life in perspective of what's really important, things can only get better. Sure, there'll be rough spots, tough days, painful moments. But that's OK, because I'll take the good with the bad and just make the most of whatever situation I'm in.

Naturally, I took the last day of December to look back on 2014 and decided that it was, all in all, a pretty good year. Without getting ... too personal, I learned a lot about myself and started to broaden my horizons. On the other hand, I have some regrets - stuff that didn't go the way I hoped it would, stuff I attempted and failed, stuff I did that I shouldn't have, stuff I should've done but didn't. Yeah, I screwed up a lot in 2014.
But that's just the thing. I can't change what's happened - my mistakes - but what I can do is learn from it and keep things - both bad and good - in perspective. Because it's just like that song, except now instead of days we're talking about years. 2014 was good because I choose to see it that way. And 2015? 2015 is going to be even better because I'm going to make it better and make myself better. And I'm going to keep doing that for the rest of my life - I'm going to learn from my successes and failures and continue to grow personally and learn more about myself and about the world. To never stop climbing, as it were.
Dunno how much sense that makes. Just the feels I'm feelin' today I felt like sharing.
