You’ve been a challenging one, 2019. A year filled with detours and raised hopes combined with rejections I didn’t really expect to face. It was a year of trying again and again and again. It was a year where I got no as an answer more than yes. I entered 2019 full of excitement and hope for a smooth sailing year, but felt more like I hit upon waves that required a ton of navigating.
I was in a bit of a mood up till recently, wondering why 2019 was not going how I wanted it to, why I lost opportunities that I really wanted and could have gotten and so on and so forth. Just earlier this month, in one of my moody rants, my family reminded me of what I currently have, the opportunities I have been presented, the favour that could only come from my Heavenly Father, and that’s when it hit me to be grateful for what I gained, instead of what I did not get. With that change in mindset, I found myself lighter, happier and I end the year with a sense of gratefulness. Gratefulness for the pockets of light that found its way into my challenging year, for the good people I have in my life that God blesses me with, for kindness and encouragement that surrounds me.
In thinking about what I have gained in 2019, I realized that despite the challenges, I find myself stronger. I find myself approaching my career with more confidence, I find myself physically more healthy, speaking up when I feel the need to and developing a shift in my personal style. I’m contented and blessed to end my 2010s era in this way.
With that said, here’s to 2020! Here’s to a new year and a brand new decade. Let’s see what it holds, I’m excited to find out!
Goodbye, 2019. Hello 2020! ☆☆
