2020 is here.
Not only is it a fresh year, but it’s also a fresh decade. I spent the “big moment” with Andrew, naturally, as well as my good friend Molly and some of her friends. As the clock struck over, I couldn’t help but feel hopeful and optimistic.
For me, the 2010s were full of many changes in my life. This naturally makes sense as I was eighteen and still in my senior year of high school when that decade began. But just in those ten years, I graduated high school, went to college, changed jobs a few times, got married, dealt with two different medical conditions, and moved to a new country, among others.
Nevertheless, I can’t help but look forward to this year with the hopes and desires I have. I’m nearly twenty-eight, and I’m finally settling into married life. I’m still impatiently waiting for my immigration paperwork to get processed – namely my work visa, so I can begin working again – but with every day, I know I’m closer to that being a reality as well.
I spent most of 2019, particularly the bookend, depressed and being extra hard on myself. I finished the year by going to therapy, and I look forward to taking that good advice with me as I start the year. If our lives are what we make it, then it stands to reason that I can make sure I have a great year this year.
So let’s hope that that’s my reality for this year.
