2022 was a year full of new experiences, successes, and heart aches. I love looking at the bright side of things. If you have been following me, you know that I do my best to shoo away any negativity and try to keep an eye on overcoming obstacles and staying on top of things.
Despite my best efforts to stay on a good note, it's quite inevitable for some things (or people) to squeeze in some darkness into my life. That being said, it's one of the things I still hope to overcome this year and remain strong.
There are a lot of small victories in 2022. I don't always discuss very personal things, but finances have been very tough for us. However, we still do our best to enjoy life and not be miserable. Certain things, such as work, are stressful enough - and we are very glad to be able to do a bit of local travelling and more family time together.
I was also able to restart my shop. Very slowly, but it's gaining traction. There's a lot of challenges for sure, and I am still working very hard in incorporating my creativity to making the things I love most. I have recently added more products into my shop - Starr & Sparkle Crafts and Designs - and I sure am hoping that this year will be much better!
The latter part of the year has been tainted with betrayal and judgment. I was told to turn away and ignore these, especially when they aren’t true, but sometimes it just really gets to you. There are some people who are too quick to assume and judge, and they tell a narrative that suits their prejudice, which implicated me at the end. When I attempted to talk about it, I was ignored and told to stop so I guess at the end of the year I remain the bad person. I steer clear of drama, I really really try to, but I guess some people would always find a passive-aggressive way to start something.
I am pretty enduring, for the most part. I am used to being blamed because I think differently, or being looked down on for my life choices. But I will no longer endure this - I will remove all the negativity and those that bring me pain emotionally and mentally.
So whatever this year brings, I will stand by my decisions and hold myself accountable. This includes focusing in succeeding my goals and reaching our dreams. It's a tough journey but I think we deserve to reward ourselves after all the hard work.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
