Hola lovelies 💕,
I’m doing a bit better than when I wrote my last blog. However, I’m having a cold now and my period is coming soon so always something bad. In this blog post I will make a short reflection on 2019. I will write about some low and highs of this year which I also wrote in a journal. Every year has good and bad things. I also wish you all a beautiful new year! 🥳🎉😘💖 May all your wildest and biggest dreams come true!
A new year has arrived: 2020. A new decade too. I’m happy to leave this decade because it came with good things but also with bad things. In this decade I met my first love and also got my heart broken at the end of 2012. I’m already 7 years single haha let’s keep up that way 😂. I also experienced beautiful things this decade like graduating college 🎓 and speaking at the United Nations in NYC 🗽 because I won an essay competition in Spanish. This happened in the Summer of 2015. I think this was definitely one of the biggest milestones this decade. I guess we can all relate to good and bad moments during this decade. I just really wish 2020 will be a better year for all of us 🙏. I hope we will experience beautiful things. I also hope we will survive and grow from the bad things.
This year I learned some important life lessons which I will take with me in 2020. I learned that sometimes we can feel more connected to people we have never met than to the ones who are next to us. I love you all so much. You all mean the world to me. I learned that a real friend will be there for you in good and bad times. I learned that life has lows and highs and that most people only share the highs on social media. I learned that it’s good to spend less time online because I only compare myself to others online which makes my mental health worse. It isn’t real life. I also am learning to sit with every emotion whether that’s a negative one such as fear or anger. We have to feel it all, go through it until we can let go. It’s hard because when I feel anxious I just want that feeling to go away as soon as possible as it makes me feel so unwell. I just hope to know how to live with anxiety this next year.
This new year my intention is to listen more to my inner voice and let my heart guide me through life instead of my mind. 2020 will be the year of self love, growth and achieving my dreams. I will use the power that I have of being my authentic and sensitive self. I hope I will be able to get a job I love and which is good for my mental health. I also hope to meet more people I have met on the internet because I align so good with you all. My intention is to feel peace and know how to go through the waves of anxiety. I know I have to overcome some fears such as going to the dentist. Anxiety just doesn’t disappear because it’s the new year. I listened to the podcast of Yoga Girl and did the intention setting ceremony. I think setting intentions is much better than resolutions. Mostly we don’t achieve all resolutions we set for ourselves or it gives us too much pressure.
In 2019 I experienced a lot of amazing things like travelling to new places like León in March with my mother. I also went to Granada again in July with my lovely mother and met my friend there. In August I went to Gijón with my Spanish friend. I want to travel more with friends and also go to a surf camp again this new year 🌊🌞🏄♀️. This year I went to the beautiful tulip fields in The Netherlands 😍🌷This year I also read more amazing books. To love and let go by Yoga Girl changed my life and I’m forever thankful for that. It was spiritual and beautiful. I will share a review about this book soon. This new year I will keep reading, writing, singing, travelling and doing all things I love. This year I also went to the concert of Alfred Garcia which I loved. Next year I really do hope to go to more concerts like the one of Taylor Swift. I’m dying to see her live as it’s my dream 😍🎶 I also hope to see Yoga Girl one day. I also hope to get tickets for Eurovision live.
I also faced a fear this year which was having a first interview for an internship in a hotel 🏩 in Spain. At the end they didn’t call me back but I went there and did my best. I hate interviews so it’s a good thing that I did well even though my heart was beating so fast I thought I was going to die 😭.
An important event this year was The Netherlands 🇳🇱 winning Eurovision after 44 years 🎉🥇🎶 This was one of the most beautiful moments of my life. It was a dream coming dream. I’m being a fan of Eurovision all my life so to see this happening was just so amazing and beautiful. I can’t wait to go to the concert of Duncan Laurence soon.
I want to give thanks to my family, friends and all the people I met this year. I’m so happy I met more amazing people. I’m thankful for my pen pals which I met this year. I’m thankful for the Goddess community, the Yoga Girl Community and this community. This mental health community is so important for my well-being. You make my life so much better. It’s so much better to know that I’m not alone with my feelings. We all feel the same things just not at the same time. It’s okay if you have had a hard year. I’m always here for you all. I hope this new year will make our heart glow of golden glitter ✨.
I celebrated New Year’s Eve with my mother at the home of the mother of Verónica and her brother. It was strange to be there without my brother and Véronica. They couldn’t be in Valladolid this time. We ate a delicious meal which was some meat, potatoes and bread with avocado and cheese sauce. I loved the chorizo and jamón serrano too which is typical Spanish food. In Spain it’s also typical to eat 12 grapes at twelve o’clock so we did that. I love to watch las campanadas 🍇😍. We also drank some champagne 🥂 We watched a program on tv which I love because it’s about Spanish artists singing. I love singing programs 🎶. Later I also played Mario Kart Deluxe and Mario Bros with the Nintendo Switch from the brother of Verónica. I really loved it so much and was pretty good at it. I was bad at Just Dance haha 🎮😂 On New Year’s Day I was chilling, resting and watching the movie Notting Hill.
Happy new year my lovely friends! 🎉 💖✨ I believe in the good things coming and hopefully it will be in abundance this new year. We all deserve it so much. I wish you all love, health and happiness ✨ I love you all so much 💞. Thank you for being there for me always. We are always in this together 💪
