Hello 2022...

Surprise, surprise! It's a new year. Another year was left behind full of happiness, sadness, disappointment, optimism, courage, fear, and so much more. The past few years have not been kind to us as a species. With COVID still very much here and present, it is so hard to look forward to a normalcy. So many lives have been lost, so many have barely started. 

2021 was a year of staying alive, just like 2020 but with more people trying to get back to normal. Now, the new strain came out of nowhere and struck a lot of us at the same time. 

I am not sure how any of you started the new year but I started it very sick. The day of NYE I had horrible body aches and I had to be at work. I came home and spent the rest of the evening in bed. Usually, me and my boyfriend have a glass of champagne, watch the ball drop and toast to a brand new year. Not this year. We were both sick in bed. 

I have been sick ever since then. Not like extremely sick but sick where all you want to do is be in bed and rest the whole day. I work in retail so I am on my feet 9+ hours a day. I am pretty used to is so it usually doesn't bother me as much but since I got sick, I get exhausted and can feel my energy slowly draining after about 3 hours of standing up and walking around. It has been a struggle to stay high energy when all I want to do is sleep. No, I do not have COVID but I did get some sort of flu like symptoms and it is taking awhile to get over it. 

I have so many things I want to do and achieve this year but starting off sick has really just set a dark mood. No motivation to do anything or work towards achieving anything. 

It's ok though, I am slowly getting back to my usual optimistic self! Starting with this blog. I am really trying to get back into blogging. I say that at the beginning of every year but I really want to stick with it this year and see where it takes me. I want to be consistent and write as much as possible. 

Blogging has always been a huge hobby of mine as well as YouTube. It has always brought me so much joy creating content and sharing it with you all. I want to bring this positivity and excitement back into my life this year. I feel like my outlook in life has changed so much just in the past few years and I really want to enjoy all the small things as much as I can. 

We are only in this life for a what feels like a short period of time. None of us really know how much time we have but what we can do is enjoy every moment. Try and make the most out of every situation. Of course, there will be dark times, of that I am sure, but we really need to focus on the bright times and the times that makes us feel lucky to be alive. 

At this point, I just wake up every day thankful to still be here and to have a roof over my head, a family who loves me and a partner who loves me for who I am. Sure, I have things I would love to change, we all do, but for now, let's be thankful for the little things. Let's not judge how other live their lives and focus on how we can better our own lives in order to live a more fulfilling life. 

This post is getting a little deep but that's what I wold love to chat with you guys on here about. Life and all its crazy twists and turns. 

I wish that this year is the year of positive change for all of us. Whatever you want to change in your life, do it this year. Focus on making this year, the year of YOU! Do what makes you happy and work towards a brighter future. 

As long as COVID lets us move on with our lives, we can accomplish so many amazing things!

So let's take those small steps into a brighter tomorrow.

Until next time,
