Happy day after Christmas y’all!
Since this entire blog is about me I thought we could get a little personal with one another. Have a sort of conversation if you will.
So 2016 has been an extremely difficult year for me just with all the life changes that have happened. There has been a lot of bad to be frank. A major relationship ending caused my whole world to change in a matter of weeks. I had to get used to being out of college and not having that crutch to fall back on. I also made a major move in my career and moved home which has been difficult to get used to. I had some more relationship problems which turned into even bigger issues. Unfortunately I was robbed by someone I personally knew which just made it feel that much worse. And to top off all the not-so-good, I dealt with the losses of people in my life which hit hard.
Now yeah, this has most definitely sucked and I could sit here and say 2016 has been the worst year in most recent memory but that would be both over-dramatic and untrue.
The first half of the year was my test of my everything and I aced that test. I have personally evolved so much as a human being. I finally fell in love with myself and came to peace with my short comings. I learned to look at things with a positive outlook and practice that most of the time 😉 (we can’t always be positive 100% of the time you know!!) I learned patience and forgiveness with everyone and everything. I most definitely am not perfect with any of these by any means but its a work in progress just like anything worthwhile is.
The second half of the year has had its hardships but has been so much more rewarding and beautiful. I have been blessed by meeting the better than I could have ever asked for man that I am incredibly lucky to call my boyfriend. One of those funny instances of I found him when I wasn’t even looking really for a partner. He’s given me so many experiences that I never would have done if it hadn’t been for him. I honestly could go on and on about this wonderful man but I won’t! I’ll spare you all the mush and gush, for now 😛
During this second half of the year I also have been afforded financial freedom from living at home as well as my new promotion at work, and I have most definitely taken advantage of that. Like you guys, my video game collection has grown so much it’s unreal! But don’t worry I am being responsible and paying off debt as well as saving money 😀
With Christmas just passing I thought it would be a good time to reflect a bit on this past year and share some of that with you guys. Though this year has pushed me to my limits and been very hard, I am proud to say that I have rose above it and came out stronger than before. I might let myself be pulled under by the negativity, which is okay, but coming up for air is both important and necessary. So to end this year and prepare for the next I will quote DJ Khaled, “Another one.” Yes. That’s there to give you a chuckle. But for real, bring it on 2017! You will be great!
As always guys, keep it classy and sassy.
