Blogmas Day 20 – A Reflection Of The Year 2018


A reflection on the year that was… 

How was 2018 for me? Well, 2018 was a weird one, it sucked at times, was good for others but most of all, I am so ready to leave it behind. 

I came into it with serious low health, both physically and mentally, and I’ve had to change my thyroid medication more times than I would care for (the side effects are far from pleasant). I gained another nephew and my first Godson which is a joyous occasion, but we also lost my paternal grandmother which was a shock to the system. It’s hard to understand how in a year you await to gain a new addition to the family, you could loose another. You couldn’t make sense of this world sometimes. 

I have seen the real truth behind people and their agendas, and it became clear as to who I should put my faith and trust into. I know who genuinely cares for me and who doesn’t, and I am happy to cut ties with some and give my attention to others. 

I turned 22 towards the end of this year and it gave me the opportunity to think about myself and where I am headed. My sole focus for the next while is going to be on myself and regaining my strength and health.

I didn’t read as many books as I would have liked to, but I watched many great films and fell in love with new music. I got to a few gigs when I was able and now have memories I will keep forever. I have cried and I have laughed, felt pain and found hope, but 2018, you have been a rollercoaster of emotion that I will happily leave behind. You tried breaking me down but I found the pieces I need to built myself back up. 

Whatever your 2018 brought, I hope you find the peace to leave it behind you and the will to go on. Here’s to a happier, healthier and shiny new year. 2019, I am ready for YOU! ❤️
