Here comes 2020…

I thought as it is my first year in London I would be out and about but London has made me appreciate the importance of staying inside sometimes and spending some time with yourself. Just enjoying the quietness which can be hard to find sometimes in the bustling city.

So as I sit at home on New Year’s Eve to reflect on the year that has gone. I guess not just the year but the decade as well. There is so much to be thankful for and so much to be excited about for 2020. 2019 has been a hell of a year and this decade has been a life-changing one. From finishing college to graduating from University. From traveling across Europe to starting my first proper job. I have learned so much from the people, circumstances, and experiences.

As I bid goodbye to 2019, I think of all my memories good and bad. Because you see when it comes to New Years, we all have this expectation of cutting off all toxicity and bad things and getting that perfect closure. But life doesn’t work like. We don’t get the perfect endings and closure.

We can’t put things away in a box with a bow on it and wish it away because that doesn’t work.

So tonight I think about it all: the good AND the bad of this decade and the lessons it taught and the person it has made me.

Lessons from 2019:

  1. Life will kick you down. Because that is life, you can stay down for a little while too. But when you get back up, get up stronger.
  2. Fake it till you make it doesn’t work in all circumstances. Sometimes you just have to look stupid, you have to say you don’t know.
  3. The peace you get from giving to someone who can’t give anything back is just life-changing.
  4. You don’t have to know where you are going, sometimes you just need to learn everything you can from the journey.

There were so many other lessons and so many other things that I could write about. But for now, I want to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Start this decade with a bang…
