Goodbye 2022

It’s a Tuesday. I feel like I have drifted away from this place I call home (my lovely blog that I love so much). It reminds me of many things I drift away from or even drift away from me. As January comes to an end in the year 2023, I feel like it is an excellent time to reflect.

This is the first time in my life that I haven’t started off a year dreading or stressing about school. That is a super weird realization to come to. It feels out of place, but also relieving. I am so happy and proud of the person I have become since graduating college. I feel freer and more relaxed. However, no one ever told me of the post-grad exhaustion. I feel like I am still trying to catch up. However, that’s not the case. What am I trying to catch up to? I am reminding myself that I am on my own path and I can take as many stops as I want to.

I think it’s good to take a pause and take in on what’s going on around you. The people you surround yourself with, the hobbies that make you smile, the new car you just bought all by yourself (yes, me I did that!), or even the new candle you got for Christmas from your sister.

I hate saying it, but it is nice to leave old habits and ghosts of people you once knew in the last year.

I don’t know. It’s good to be back and journal some of the thoughts that I think about. Just here to say, take a deep breath and be yourself. Don’t drift away from you.
