Looking Back On 2019

Looking Back On 2019_1

It’s that time of the year again, where I recap the year we just had. 2019 was an emotional and life-changing year. Looking Back On 2019, I can honestly say it’s been a rough year for me…

As you guys know in June my mom passed away. The most painful thing I have ever experienced and to this day I am frustrated and so angry that she was taken away from us far too soon.

2019 a painful year

I’ve tried the most to keep myself occupied with work and getting on with life when truth be told it’s not easy at all. Especially when work stress can reach an intimate high. There were times I completely broke down. My mom was a single parent, we were dirt poor … All that suffering during my childhood makes me eternally grateful for the life I now have, a husband, an amazing family that I married into a and loving home. All the things we dream of as a little girl.

It’s still so painful to talk about my mom, I have been struggling with her not being with us. With all this said 2019 was a painful year for me.

the good things

One of the good things about 2019, my husband and I reached our first wedding anniversary. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have dreamt of meeting the love of my life, someone who gets me and treats me like a queen. I am so thankful to have him in my life. It would be so easy for me to dwell on all the pain, but I have so much good happening in my life too. Work has also changed a lot since the beginning of the year. My company decided to go remotely which means we work at home most of the time besides the monthly meetings we have.

It has made such an amazing difference and something I am so grateful for. The most soul-crushing thing about having a full-time job is commuting, especially when our offices are at least an hour away. Two hours or more on the route left me feeling exhausted and unmotivated. So when my company decided to go remotely I was in shock! It has been one of the best things to have come out of 2019.

2019 was a big year in so many ways, bring on 2020!
