Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”
First of all, Happy New Year, everybody! I hope 2019 will be an amazing and blessed year for all of you!
I am amazed by how fast 2018 passed by. I mean, in one minute, I was starting my year inside a factory, working like a crazy, and at another minute, I was already celebrating Christmas with my boyfriend.
2018 was definitely a crazy year for me. I quit my job that I had been working in for more than 10 years. Yeah, I finally had the guts to do that. But I had to go deep down to the hell before realising how badly stressed I was. I was always mad with everybody around me. I was angry with myself because I was feeling like I was a coward for not having the courage to change what I wanted to change. I was in my comfort zone. I was scared of leaving my job because I thought that I couldn’t find a new one that better suited me. I wanted to be a writer, I wanted to dedicate myself to my books, to create a blog and make my dreams come true. But I’d arrive home everyday feeling so freaking tired and pissed off that I didn’t feel like writing. I could feel that my mind was off and there was something very wrong with me. I started having some health problems due to my work and my relationship with my boyfriend was hanging by a thread. So I decided to take a break and go to Brazil to spend quality time with my family. I must say that it was a blessing because I love my family and I was missing them like crazy.
When I got back here, I was feeling so much better, and my mind was clear once again. I felt ready to begin my life all over again and leave my comfort zone. It’s scary as hell, but I am not going to give up. When I gave up my dreams to live a secure life with secure payment, I died inside. Don’t take me wrong, I’ll be forever grateful for everything that my previous job had done for me. I made a lot of friends there, and it was that job that helped me to grow a lot and paid my bills. But it’s time to move on!
So this is my new year’s resolution: to be myself, to never give up my dreams. To follow my heart and do my best to live for what I was born to. I love to write, and that’s what I’m going to dedicate my life to: writing.
I can’t wait to see what this year is going to bring into my life. It’s like what I always tell you, guys! Never lose hope! 🙂
I’m excited to share with you my 2019 and the years that are yet to come! This is going to be amazing!
I'm a Brazilian crazy cat lady, book lover and gamer who loves to write, listen to music and doesn't know how to cook! All of those plus living in Japan for the last fifteen years. :)
Welcome to my life!
