I always like to look back on the past year and omg, 2018 flew by so quickly. The endless summer, the short winter and the quick Christmas, where did the time go?
Looking back on 2018 is looking back on a year with definitely some life changes. I moved into my own appartment, I became an aunt, I got a new job and I went on a group vacation, which I was always to0 scared of doing. I don’t even remember if I had resolutions, but I do know that I experienced some things that I wanted for a while. I wanted a new job, I wanted to move into my own appartment and I was really excited about becoming an aunt. And vacationing with a group of people I had never met, I never knew I had the guts to actually do it, and I did, and I loved it.
I also went to some places that I had never been before, like Ibiza and Dublin. Two very different and very beautiful and fun places to go to. I can check that off my bucketlist 😉
Like any other year, 2018 had its ups and downs, but overall, it’s been a good year. The best part of 2018 is where my sister got a baby girl and I am so excited to be an aunty. She’s so cute! It also made me realize that maybe I want to have kids too, a husband and a house with a garden.
2018 also made me realize that life is short and the life that you know now can be changed within a minute, which makes me even more grateful and I definitely want to live in the moment more and actually do the things that I like to do, with the people that I love and care about.
And what about 2019? Why only have resolutions at new year’s when you can better your life at any moment? BUT, I might have one resolution and that is that I want to make the most out of life and that I don’t want to pretend anymore. I don’t want to pretend that I am having a good time when I don’t, I don’t want to pretend that I like a person when I don’t and I don’t want to pretend to be somebody that I’m not.
I also want to discover what I really want in life. Do I like an office job or not? Do I want to save money for a house or maybe I want to travel a while again? So for 2019, that’s what I want to figure out. What do I want? But mostly, just do the things you love to do, because life is fucking short and you should live it the way you want to.
