Hey, peeps. How are you?
Are you all ready for Christmas? Only 6 days left 🎄.
13 days left until New Year 🎆 wow, time flies.
Getting into the holiday spirit, I’ve thought of writing a personal blogpost as it’s been a while since I wrote one. Going through my old posts I’ve noticed that last time I wrote about what the year meant to me was about 2014, therefore, after 5 years I’m writing today’s post: ‘What 2019 meant to me’ as it was definitely an exciting one.
The last 5 years have been great but this last one has been the greatest so far!
In the past when something didn’t go as planned I used to think that I just have bad luck and nothing works out for me as I want. But with time passing, I’ve realized that things happen when they are meant to happen and you just need to have patience.
In order to tell you about 2019 I will have to start with talking about 2018 and also the previous years as they are all connected.
I’m sure I’ve said this before but 5 years ago we moved here together with the idea of starting a family, settling down, developing personally and professionally and living a happy life as we would all want. We’ve changed a lot during these years and I would like to think that it’s all in a positive way and that we worked towards some goals we’ve set before coming to England. The major ones for nearest future (short-ish term) were: getting married, having a baby, buying a house and for myself – becoming a specialist physiotherapist.
So working towards these goals, here I am today quoting Paulo Coelho ‘When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it’ and telling you that in:
- May 2018: we had our wedding 🧡
- February 2019: we’ve moved into our house 🏡
- May 2019: I gave birth to Lukas Gabriel 👶
- October 2019: I’ve got my permanent residence in the UK 🇬🇧
- November 2019: I’ve got a job as a Neuro Specialist Physiotherapist 👩⚕️
The idea is that you don’t have to rush things, if something is meant to be, it will happen – you just might need to work ‘a bit’ towards it, have ambition and patience. As long as you set your goals (long term or short term), involuntarily you will work towards making them happen.
Now we are looking forward to our first Christmas and New Years holidays as a family of 5 (the 3 of us and our 2 cats) and to what 2020 will bring to us. What I wish for us in 2020 is to be healthy, caring, ambitious, strong and to raise Lukas the best way we can.
I wish you all the best in 2020 and to not give up in your journey towards fulfilling your dreams. Hugs! Take care.
