Motivational Speech : This year I was tested more than ever. I lost a lot, but also won, I failed, I cried, I laughed, I learned, I loved, but most of all, I'm still here: I did not break.

This year, I found myself tested more profoundly than ever before.

Amidst the ebb and flow of life's challenges, I faced losses that carved hollow spaces within, and yet, I also stood victorious, triumphant in the face of adversity.


I stumbled, I fell, and in silence tears were running on my face, tracing paths on cheeks worn by the weight of the sorrow . Laughter, a beacon of light, echoed through the darkest moments, and within the echoes, I discovered the profound lessons that failure bestowed upon me.


Love, a force both tender and fierce, gave me through the storms, a constant reminder that even in the harshest winds, the heart can find solace.

But above all I emerged with an unwavering truth: I'm still here; I did not break.


Now I stand on the threshold of a new chapter, I carry the scars of battles fought and the wisdom birthed from the adversity.

The coming year is an unwritten chapter, and I approach it not as a passive observer :

I want to be the one holding the pen.


For those who, like me, faced challenges but kept going, I want to say: let's celebrate our strength. We may have scars, but they're like badges showing we've been through a lot, but we are here in one piece !


And for those who are still going through a hard time, I want you to know: tough moments don't last forever. Even when it feels dark, there's always a new day ahead. Your strength is like a light guiding you through. Embrace the hard times as chances to become even stronger.


It’s difficult, I know very well !!! But don’t give up .


As I look back on this year, it was a rollercoaster, full of ups and downs.

There were times I felt down, I lost important things, I found out “ friends” who followed me in the sun but left me in the dark ; but also I had moments of success, laughter, and love.


I learned a bunch, and, most importantly, I made it through without breaking.


In your own life story, every moment, good or bad, adds up to something beautiful.

I have learned that , no matter how hard it gets, I  have the strength to keep going, and we all have it !


It’s only a matter of choice: you have to decide to believe in yourself !


So I am ready now to facing the unknown, creating  stories, and knowing that, yes, I am  still here, unbroken, and ready for whatever comes next.


So... 2024 …. You are welcome.
