For Auld Lang Syne

2015 is coming to a close.

I have 24 hours left to the year, and I have no clue how to begin celebrating the end because really it is more like a beginning.

I spent this last year finding myself – finding my voice, and I could not have done it without the people that have come and gone in my life. Does this mean that I should forget them now because the year is ending?

“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?”

No.

I should remember them and keep them as close my thoughts as I can. I have to remember how hard my depression hit, I have to remember the one night stands, I have to remember the infidelity I found myself caught up in. Am I proud of any of this? No, but it is a part of who I am today. I grew stronger than all of it, and as I say goodbye to that part of my life, I will always remember it and how it affected me.

As 2015 comes to a close, I might have to say goodbye to the first man I have ever loved.

As 2015 comes to a close, I have to let go of every wrong word I uttered during the year, and every wrong move I made.

As 2016 approaches, I must promise to be a better version of myself – the best version, if possible.

I love the classic ballad “Auld Lang Syne”. It is so spectacular. But, what does it mean, really?

Well, that is really for you to decide.

Auld Lang Syne – What does it mean?
