For the past 6 months I’ve been trying to get back into blogging. From lack of technology (broken MacBook) to lack of motivation and time, I could not for the life of me, convince myself to type anything worthwhile. Seeing as 2017 is coming to an end and my 2 year blog birthday is coming up, I thought I’d give a run down of what the hell’s been going on.
2014 – The Almost Relationship
Without going into too much detail there was a guy. I wouldn’t admit I had feelings for him, and amongst other things, this led to us both meeting new people and leaving each other behind.
2016 – The Year Everything Changed
I’ve spoken about this loads, but I basically found myself in a position where I had to reinvent myself. I was living in someone else’s house, hanging out with someone else’s friends, and was working for someone I thought cared about me but they evidently didn’t.
2017 – The Important One
Starting the year with a new job, new house and as a single women, I was ready to conquer the world. I was hanging out with ‘The Girls’ and making more of an effort to make and maintain new friends. (Shout out to Chloe). I ended up having a short fling with a guy from Tinder, which was fun but totally was unfair on both parties.
My 2017 accomplishments aren’t all about relationships. I came off my anti depressants (for anxiety and depression) and I completed my PTSD therapy, I can now walk alone in public without having a panic attack yay! I was finally starting to feel like me again. I stopped smoking, I gained and lost some weight and have been loving everything about my life. I have my dream job, a nice house and then the unexpected happened.
The 2014 Almost Relationship finally amounted into something. This is why I cannot stress how important it is to chill out and let things happen. Everything is happening for a reason. If it’s meant to be it will be. This time last year if you said to me I’d be where I am now I would have spat out my cappuccino in your face. It’s the perfect display of ‘Everything happens for a reason’ I wouldn’t change a thing about my path because I have learnt so much along the way. Look at Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, look at Jim and Pam, it all makes sense and works out for the best in the end.
I wake up everyday so bloody happy with everything in my life and its amazing. I know I can be happy regardless of any circumstance, because I have gained and lost everything and am so much better for it. If things are shit for you right now, don’t worry. Things do get better, and while it’s not always an easy or quick journey it’s totally worth it. Be positive, eat the cake and when times get tough, laugh, because once you hit rock bottom, the only way is up!
