2016, you broke me

2016, you broke me,

You made me feel pain, you unraveled my layers, you tore me down, you gave me many lessons and teachers and you brought everything I have ever feared of to the surface.

You broke me, but you helped me become the person that I was always meant to be. So I could heal, be let out of my cage and taught how to fly.

I was a caterpillar for so long, caught in this cocoon of darkness and you helped me see the light, to become a butterfly and to truly transform into the woman that I am and for that I thank you.

I thank you for this transformational year, the year I discovered how to really feel, how to speak up and the year I saw what others saw in me and realised how much I was worth to the world.

So thank you 2016.

You broke me, but you gave me life.

2017 I’m ready for you, please be nice.

“When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings.” – Dean Jackson
