You win some, you lose some.
That’s how I sum up my 2018. I lost a lot of people last year, and I gained a lot of new friends and acquaintances this year, even if we’re still on the second month of 2019. This is my first post for 2019, so allow me to make a little recap of what happened to me last year.
From January 2018 up to the first half of May 2018, I’ve been hoping for something grand to happen in my life. But that supposed “success” that I’m supposed to receive that time was deferred. Let’s just say, I’m bound to receive the blessing that I’m supposed to receive last year on another scheduled date, which is this year.
From second half of May 2018 up to June 2018, I’ve been on my lowest point. I can’t think straight. I can’t eat properly. I can’t even function very well. I lost myself somewhere in this process of making myself better.
Come July 2018, I decided to take a breather and relax for a bit. I did whatever I need to do, and I gave what I need to give. It’s more of like a “go with the flow” thing, which I don’t normally do. Haha.
From August 2018 up to September 2018, I kept my head down and searched for a job. Thank God I found one that seems to fit my schedule.
From the September 2018 up to December 2018, I embarked on a new journey. I am finally employed! Things got rough from the start, and I admit that I was not really happy. But I decided to thrive through everything. Besides, I am learning to apply what I learned from school, so that makes me a little happy, I guess. Haha. I learned to be happy in my current situation. This is actually far from what I expected from myself, but learned a lot from each and every experience that I had these past few months. I never thought I’ll be in this position, but I’m still thankful that I’m here because I am learning and I know to myself that I am growing stronger each and every day of my life today. Actually, I like this version of myself right now. I love the outcome of what I have become.
This year, I intend to grow some more. This year, my main focus is to give importance on how I connect with other people. Maybe, this time, I need to focus on my lovelife. Haha. There are those who are single and mature about it, and they are still happy with their situation. Also, there are those who enjoy mature dating. Just remember that no matter what age we are in right now, we should enjoy having date nights with our significant other and/or to whoever we want to date. Also, it is always a rule of thumb that we should all be safe and comfortable during our date nights. Once we find a red flag, save yourself from the possible danger and end the date right away. I never compromised my well-being just to “save” the fun in dating, so should you. 🙂
Lately, I’ve been busy balancing my tasks as a graduating student and my responsibilities aa an employee. I must admit that both spheres are very demanding, but I know to myself I could get through this.
