Can’t remember the last time I wrote a blog post but we’re here now. There are only four more days left in 2020 and I felt it was only right to do one more blog post to wrap up the year. These last few months have been crazy. I will not get all into what’s been going on and why I have not written a post but I will say that I am excited this year is coming to an end and am looking forward to 2021.
I moved a few weeks ago and am still in the process of getting things together but once everything is in order I cannot wait to share our new studio apartment with you all!
With all that has occurred this year, I feel it is important to look back over the year and highlight some of the positive things that occurred. There were a lot of setbacks, canceled plans, and death (rip to all those who are no longer with us) but it wasn’t all bad.
Three questions for reflection:
What is something positive that came out of this year?
- New job as a Behavior Counselor/RBT
- Moved into my own place
- Caught up on all my bills
- A lot of learning and growth
What is something you have learned this year?
This year has taught me so much about myself and the way that I relationship. For many years I struggled with being able to be there for the people I love without taking on their pain and struggles as my own. I struggled with being vulnerable and expressing my emotions. But this year has given me the knowledge I needed to be there for the people I love in a way that is healthy for them and me. I was also given the opportunity to tap into myself and discover who I am, what is no longer working for me, and what I have the power to change. In other words this year has been very enlightening in reference to personal development.
What is something you hope to achieve next year?
Next year I mainly want to achieve consistency in my personal life. I find that I am able to commit and be consistent with people, jobs, sports teams, etc. but am not always able to offer myself that same commitment and consistency in things that I simply want to do. I will start things and eventually they will fade away but no more. I realized that I am what’s holding me back and everyday is an opportunity to take a step in the right direction.
So with this year coming to a close I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me, encouraged me, inspired me, and pushed me to be my best self. I truly appreciate yall. It is only up from here, mark my words!
