Some years go by quickly and are a blur because of the repetitive actions, the usual ups and downs. Other years, you end the year a completely different person standing in a different spot than where you started the year. Last year brought a lot of change. Some good change, some unexpected change and some change I was just not ready for. I changed jobs, moved to a city alone, we sold my childhood home, my parents moved 9 hours away and the most unexpected of them all, starting to date someone. I don’t know if I handled the change well looking back. I like to think that I did the best that I could by making to-do lists, telling myself that I could try again tomorrow, and most importantly enjoying every minute of this new adventure.
Of course, 2018 did not give me all of the answers or be able to enlighten me with an idea of what my future will hold. But it did teach me that family is only a car ride away, you have to sometimes send the first text and make plans, it’s okay to have credit card debt, and the powers of dry shampoo. 2018 felt like a long year because of everything that has happened in just 365 days. After years of longing for change, I finally got the opportunities to try something new. Overall, 2018 was a good year for me and I am kind of sad to see it end. I am starting 2019 in a good mood hopeful to see where another year will take me. Life is interesting because nothing is ever certain. Things are always changing and as much as we try to plan for things, life always has a different path than the one we planned.
As of right now, I don’t have anything big planned for the new year. There is usually a list of things I would like to accomplish within the new year and time around I am very content with where my life is. Odd how we spend so much time trying to improve our lives with materialist things, the dream job or luxury apartment. But when we have everything we could ever want, what do we plan for next? What about you? Where do you see
