From my plastic cup of $10 sparkling wine to yours, I'd like to make a toast:
Here's to all the tasks we didn't accomplish.
Here's to all the risks we didn't take.
Here's to all the things we wanted to say but never did.
Here's to all the things we said and then regretted after.
Here's to all the jokes that didn't get a laugh.
Here's to all the times we forgot someone's name.
Here's to all the times we said "no" because we were too much of a coward to say "yes."
Here's to all the times we almost didn't make our rent.
Here's to all the times we were sad.
Here's to all the Pinterest recipes we burned in the oven.
Here's to all the times we failed.
We're champions. We fall down and get right back up and keep living. And sometimes it's damn hard, but you know what? We do it anyway. And in the end, it's worth it. So one last cheers to a new year of new mistakes, new failures, new memories, and of not knowing where we'll end up at the end of it. Life is a pain in the ass and I love every minute of it.
Cheers to you! Cheers to us! Cheers to all the times we messed it all up!
