Hello, beautiful souls. I know that I have been absent for a while, but if I’m being honest with myself, this year would’ve been crazy for me even without the pandemic. As you’ve read from the title, it’s about time that I recap my year. Hopefully, this will justify my absence, but if it doesn’t, who cares. I’m okay with how things are, and that’s really all that I’m concerned with.
The beginning of the year was rough. I ended my 2019 with a hospital visit and started 2020 the same. I found out that I have a fibroid (basically a ball of tissue) near my female reproductive organs. Normally, a fibroid is just there, but mine is twisted around the tissue causing a few more complications. Around that time, I also had a G.I. virus that seemed to be the first wave of COVID. Now normally, I just feel bad and keep it pushing by hydrating and resting. With this, I couldn’t even drink water. It was horrid. But enough of that.
In March, I found out that I would be moving from Las Vegas to Texas before the end of the year. I was originally supposed to leave in August, but due to the pandemic, my move was pushed to November. I also got a promotion at my job in June, which I was super happy about. I worked really hard, and to see the progress, it made the struggles worth it.
My sister also got married this year. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to physically attend, but thanks to the constant evolution of technology, I didn’t get to miss out on the celebration. I got to celebrate my sister’s nuptials with some amazing friends that were in my city to make up for my physical absence.
About a month or so later, I did go back to the hospital for my fibroid. Everything was pretty kosher. I just kept it pushing. I turned 24 this year! To celebrate, I got myself a new vehicle. It was glorious! I couldn’t be happier, and I’m excited to ride the wheels off of this one.
Before I knew it, November was here. I drove from Vegas to Texas and settled in just fine. I had an apartment waiting for me and a great team that was excited to meet me. I’ve settled into work nicely and hit the ground running.
Here we are. Christmas was a couple of days ago, and I am blessed enough to be in a small controlled environment with my family. It was the first time I was able to hug my mom and dad this year. It was very much needed. I’ve finally been getting some rest and lots of love.
Now let me say, this year did not come without plenty of tears, a spiral of depression, buckets of anger, and times when I wanted to give all of it up. I am blessed with people who love and care about me so dearly who kept pushing me to keep going.
For those of you who have gone through the same emotions and felt like no one is here for you, know that I am. Your feelings are valid. You are worthy of the beautiful life that you live. You are worthy of all good things that you have worked for. You are one of a kind. There is no one else like you. You are irreplaceable. Stay strong.
I have come to the end of this post and the end of the year. I’ll be resting, and I hope that you do the same. It’s time to reset for 2021.
