A Year in My Life

I wish I could say that this past year has been easy, but truthfully it has been the most extricating, difficult year that I had went through in a very long time. I have experience the loss of many things and people. My world fell apart like a supernova. It all began when my Grandpa passed away last March. His passing broke me, I remember spending days curled up in my bed, crying, and being sad for days on end. I have been replaying a lot of our memories in my head. I have a lot of pictures that I look at when I miss him.

He truly was an amazing person. Everyone loved him and he was everyone’s best friend. He is so missed, but he is forever in my heart. I think about him all of the time.

I had tried taking on a retail job. I have normally just done jobs in the food industry, so it was difficult in the beginning. After months, I have been managing just fine. I have worked a few retail jobs before, so I have been using the skills to my new job. I have actually met some really nice people there. It was a hard adjustment, but now I feel like I can get in the swing of things.

And then unfortunately I experienced another loss when my aunt passed away a few months ago. I miss her so much. I feel bad because I haven’t had many chances to see her recently since the whole covid situation. She passed away so unexpectedly. I always wished I was able to spend more time with her before she passed away. But unfortunately that is life. We all have one last day with everyone, we just never know when that might happen. That is why it is important to stay in touch with the people that matter the most. It should also reinforce us to be kind to each other, since we don’t know what our last words may be to someone.

And another loss that I faced last year, was when my boyfriend and I broke up. We still talk from time to time, we don’t hate each other. We are able to be civil about it.

So this explains why I haven’t been that active in the blog universe.

Although the one good thing about last year is that I was able to reconnect with one of my friends from many years ago. I am happy that the universe decided to bring someone that can bring joy in my life despite taking away people. That is the universe’s way of taking the good with the bad.

After all of the losses I had suffered last year, I truly hope that 2022 is the year for me. Things aren’t exactly perfect right now. But I pray for guidance, and for the strength to not allow myself to stay broken. I will try to rebuild myself so I can come back stronger than ever. My life has been so messy and complicated right now, but what matters is how I rebuild myself after these losses. I have big goals for myself. I am excited for all of the things I have planned to do this year. Of course, I would be documenting my goals and dreams on my blog. I do wish to blog more again.

I truly miss all of you. I hope everyone has been doing well. I appreciate any words of feedback, love and prayers. I will try to get back to everyone who comments. Thank you again for understanding.

Thankful Thursdays #4

What a week this week has been. Allow me to explain in the things I am thankful for.

For my new followers, every Thursday I discuss a few things I am grateful for in the past week.

  1. I am thankful because I left my job, and that has been extremely freeing. I have been there on and off for 3 and a half years. I felt like they never really appreciated my hard work that I brought with me. I am happy that I don’t have to go there anymore.
  2. My boyfriend has been holidays this week, so we got to spend a lot of time together, which I am always grateful for.
  3. I am happy for the new teas I bought. Tea always makes me happy. Although I haven’t tried it, I’m saving that for tomorrow. They’re immunitea so they have added vitamins to help strengthen your body from getting sick.
  4. I am thankful for having a vision board. It’s where I post a bunch of positive quotes and my goals for the future. I love the feeling of being inspired and chasing after my dreams.
  5. Because my boyfriend didn’t have to go to work this week, there hasn’t been any reason to set an alarm in the morning. So waking up whenever we feel like, has been very comforting.

I would love to read what everyone else is thankful for this week. 🙂
