A new year, a new page! A birthday appreciation post.
A new page has turned for me. I’m finally hitting my late 20’s but it doesn’t bother me anymore! If it was me 2 years ago then I’d be bothered but living and working abroad have totally changed my perspective in life.
I have met lots of people who shared to me different views in life which gave me lots of inspiration. No matter how old you are, you are still growing, emotionally and intellectually most especially. It was then I was able to open my mind to all the possibilities in life. I am the type who is usually scared of getting out from my comfort zone but I learned how to embrace new changes even when I need to step out of my bubble a bit.
During my first few months here in the United Kingdom, I wanted to go back home so badly or maybe take my mom with me. I was used to being sheltered and given what I needed. This was my first time living away from home, away from my family. I realized how difficult adulting was. It was never easy to make decisions on my own. The home sickness was really bad too. But I kept on reminding myself that this was my dream. This was what I wanted. I shall stay strong! Until now, I’m still adjusting, I get emotional sometimes but things are a lot better now.
Initially, I had a different plan for my birthday blog post but then I thought, why not do an appreciation post? It would be more personal and sincere. It was time to give a little payback even with just this post.
I dedicate this post, as I turned a new page and as another year passed, to the people who molded me to become a much better person. To my family, my dashing dad, my beautiful mom, my lovely sisters and brothers, my very understanding partner, my very generous aunts and very loving grandmoms, my friends who were there to listen to my worries, to my mentors and colleagues, and you of course, my wonderful readers, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
Cheers to more learnings, travels and adventures this year!
Be pretty, be happy, be you! H~
