Day 21 – Something You Are Proud Of
I’m proud of surviving through this year. I’ve had a really tough one – the toughest one of my life by far – and now that I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I can look back and say that I did well to handle everything as well as I did. I had moments of weakness (a lot of them), but I also had moments where I proved to myself I’m stronger than I give myself credit for. I feel like this year has forced me to grow up a lot, and to see things differently. I have a newfound respect for my job and how important it is because I now appreciate how much it sucks to be job hunting. I’ve had two cancer scares in my family, I had my first accident that was my fault, I had my first wisdom tooth removed, I had my first episode of sciatica (nobody realizes how much we take moving without pain for granted until they can’t do it!), I lost a lot of friends who I thought I could trust but they stabbed me in the back, I lost out on seeing the guy I like every day because he got a new job. The list goes on. It seriously has felt like all this year has dished out for me is blow after blow, and you know what? I’m still standing. I might be scarred and battered from it all, but I’m doing okay. And okay is probably the best possible outcome I could hope for after all this. Some days are tough, and some – like today – are wonderful. It’s nice to finally have a good day. It’s like a rainbow after a storm. I know now that I’ve survived all this, I can survive anything!
