I am hopeful for a better year

  • Last year was very depressing and sad for me and didn't go the way I wanted it to, but I am hoping that I am able to find peace with my self this year and to not be depressed anymore. The reason for my sadness is mostly because I lost a lot of my good friends because of my ex so I am awfully lonely and hope to make new friends this year and to finish my major in computer science once and for all. If I am able to accomplish those two things then I'll be truly happy so I will remain hopeful and pray for the best of what 2017 has to offer.

    I hope 2017 is *your* year... things have been pretty tough for you from what you say.. so really you are due for a break..  I love the way that even though you have had a rough time you do still have that little spark of optimism. that's what will save you... you have hope and while you have hope you will keep on going forward and will welcome new opportunities.. 

    Wishing 2017 is everything you hope for and more
