Last night of 2015.
My favourite movie growing up, Material Girls, is airing on TV right now. My father and my uncle is chatting in the background. It’s crazy how so much changes over one year, right? What this year has taught me is that life is unpredictable. It doesn’t have to be a negative thing at all. It’s what makes life exciting and changes your destiny forever. I’ve also learned an even more important thing. To always be proud of who I am! It’s such a powerful feeling and I never thought I would get there so soon. But with experiences, comes knowledge and awakenings. I’ve learned something so vital, which I want to bring with me this upcoming year. I’m ready to love myself more, grow and change, and have a magical new year.
2016, I’m ready for you.
A lot of things has happened since I last wrote a post on my blog. Everything that have happened over these past two months have been surreal, tough, different, crazy and made me feel exhausted. BUT, all of those challenges have made me grow and made me realise a lot of things. I am not a person that likes to complain, I just hate it. So even though a lot have happened, some positive, some negative- something good came out of it! Yay! Over the last few months, I did travel to the UK as an au pair. After 5 days I went home, because the family and I were not a good match. I mean, they thought that we were a good match, but I just knew after a couple of days that me being an au pair there was wrong. There were a lot of expectations and demands, and it became too much. I don’t want to get into it too much, because no goodness comes from it. But it was a big eyeopener for me. I am proud of myself for actually stepping out of my comfort zone and travel to a different country, and follow my dream! That takes a lot of courage sometimes, but there are certain times I just need to leave my fears behind and just do it, whatever “it” might be. Another thing is to never apologise for who you are and to be PROUD of the person that you are. I will never be everyone’s cup of tea. I am who I am, just like you are who you are; and no one can change that! Either you accept a person for who they are and leave it at that… Or you can spend hours, days, months, wishing that this specific person will change. I like who I am and sometimes I’m insecure. Shy. Quiet. Indecisive. But that’s just who I am, and there is nothing wrong with that. I am just a person trying to grow and figure out who I am. But I’m also caring. Kind. Positive. Giving. it’s important to know that it is the good things that matters at the end. Unfortunately there are some people that only see your flaws and not your great qualities; and that’s their problem, not yours! Be yourself, be proud of who you are and don’t ever change for anyone.
I am going to end this blog post by saying that, Yes, a lot has happened over the last few months, but when I look back… I feel like a different person today and I couldn’t ask for anything else. I actually grew a lot on those experiences and I’m so grateful! Sometimes it’s important to see the positive side of things, instead of the negative!
I have now been in Romania for almost 2 months! 2 months! Isn’t it crazy how fast the time has gone by. I’ve had the best time ever and I’ve experienced so much. I feel like I’ve grown so much and I’m so happy! I can’t wait to go back home and hug all of my friends. They have all supported me which makes me so happy. I’m just so grateful for this opportunity, because I know so many people would love to volunteer, but doesn’t get the chance to do it.
