Dear Journal ... It's almost a new year!

As 2021 comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. Whether it be my blog, my youtube channel, or just me in general. These last couple of weeks have been interesting, to say the least, but I am happy to be entering a new season with a clean bill of health. I received my kidney ultrasound results that showed no abnormalities which is great. My appetite is still up and down but not alarming enough to get help. I am in better spirits as we are moving forward, not only into a new month but a new year.

Adulting can be very hard and even harder when you have to battle some kind of bodily issue. Being immunocompromised is no joke and some days are worse than others but it’s good to keep being hopeful and push through. It’s important to educate yourself by learning all the information about your illness that you can by keeping up to date on helpful tips and new medications. I truly look forward to 2022 not only because it’s a new year, but to new adventures, new skills, new plans. 

The goals I have for 2022:

  1. Work on eating 3 meals a day
  2. Keep to a strict budget
  3. Continue to let God lead 

I know if I keep these as my main focus for the year, I can get way ahead of where I hope and need to be.  So my takeaway from 2021 is that although we are still battling this COVID pandemic, the things I learned are:

  1. To be patient with yourself
  2. Things DO get better
  3. Look forward to the end goal

Things may not always go your way or how you would like them, they may even take longer than expected but it's good to have patience. Having patience is the ultimate emotional control tool. Having the ability to deal with setbacks, delays, or rejection without losing your cool shows the real strength. What will it all mean in the end? That is what I keep asking myself. Will it matter later? 

With that being said ... so 2022, please be good to me, and the rest of the world.

Let me know in the comments, what will you be working on in the new year? Do you have any new goals?
