I’ve been sitting here wondering where the time has gone. As years have passed, I’ve come to realize my Grandpa was right all along – he would tell me time passes more swiftly as you get older. When I was younger, it was hard for me to believe. I remember as a child how most days felt really long and months would drag on. Now I’m in my 30s and I’m wishing for time to slow down.
I have never been one to make New Year’s resolutions, since I always believed we shouldn’t wait for a new month or a new year to set up goals. I believe if you want to start something new or make a change, you have the power to do it at anytime and any day. Perhaps, I am missing or forgetting something. As I made time to pause and look back through old photos, it allowed me to think more. Perhaps, looking back allows us to rethink and relive moments in our lives, which allows us to want to do something different. All I know is this year I am resolving to get back into the swing of things when it comes to writing and doing all things I love in life.
I took a break from writing and other major hobbies due to me recovering from covid-19. I had the virus way before vaccines were being offered and I had it really bad. Unfortnately, I was hospitalzed for a while and spent a lot of my time in the observation room, where nurses were in and out of my room every moment. Eventually, I requested to go home because I thought I wasn’t going to survive another day. If anything had happened to me I wanted to be near my family. I was blessed with having a Doctor who listened and cared about my needs. He allowed me to go home with treatment and an oxygen machine – I couldn’t breathe without it at the time. I went through a traumatic experience and the virus caused a lot of damage to my body. What I am trying to say is, covid-19 really put a pause on a number of things in my life and things haven’t been the same since. As I am healing and able to do more, I’ll spend more time on here and be more active.
On the bright side, I’ve learned some valuable lessons over the past couple of years and I hope to forget about them. I look forward to better days ahead. Before I go, I’d like to say Happy New Years to everyone. May it be filled with blessings, love, family, and friends.
