2 years ago I started this blog in an effort to keep me accountable while I attempted to find happiness. I couldn’t see the positives in any situation and was having trouble making goals and working towards achieving them. I created this blog and some bucket lists to keep me motivated, and used this site as a way to remind myself of the things I had done and put a positive spin on things I had gone through. Socially speaking, people don’t like to read about someone’s negatives, so it forced me to face the positive.
I’ve been meaning to get back to writing on here… it’s constantly been on my to do list, but to be honest, I haven’t felt like I’ve needed to reflect in this way recently. During a FaceTime with my family last week, my Dad mentioned that I was the happiest he’s seen me. It stuck with me overnight and by morning I realized that I had set out what I’ve been meaning to do.
I have the basic career and lifestyle that I had been hoping for. And ultimately, I’m so happy. Now I find myself looking for new goals like car ownership or finding a long term flat or even a house rental (rather than a house share).
Now, it’s Christmas Eve at the end of a looooooooooong year. 2020 constantly threw curveballs but I am so grateful for my health and the health of those around me. This Christmas, I’ll be surrounded by new best friends and long distance family Skypes– and I’m feeling so fulfilled.
What a change these two years have brought.
