Forgive me for disappearing. It's been difficult finding time to sit down and write with everything that's been going on in my life. This past month has been filled with happiness, positivity, and opportunities.
I am now a 24-year-old, I feel like life is just flying by. I usually make my birthday a huge deal, I mean who doesn't right? But this year was different. Battling depression has been an emotional roller coaster and it has changed my attitude toward things, my birthday being one of them. This year I just feel lucky to be alive, to have made it another year. 23 brought a lot of emotions that I needed to face and deal with. There were times during my dark days when I didn't have the will to live. I thought I was better off dead. I would no longer be a burden to my family and friends and everyone would be better off without me. Being able to say I made it another year is incredible. I’m far from perfect but I am on a positive road to healing and becoming stronger everyday.
24 brings a lot of positivity and change into my life. I am proud to say that I'm finally a working girl again! I received a wonderful job opportunity at my Alma Mater to be a financial coordinator and it has been the best experience so far. I can finally say that I love my job. My first day was very comfortable and I felt right at home. It truly makes all the difference to be in an atmosphere surrounded by amazing people. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but this job is a great stepping stone back into the working force.
I’m very optimistic about this new year of my life and what it has to offer. Change is scary, but I needed this change. Life really does have a way of working out the way it's supposed to. I now understand why people say "God laughs when you make plans."
