Happy New Year everyone! Omg it´s 2016 already!
I had a lovely Christmas and New years with my boyfriend and son, we were all alone since my mum and dad spent the holidays in Denmark with my brother, they don’t come back until January the 3d, so we still have a few days alone. We were so nervous about the food and taking care of everything alone, but it was so nice, just the three of us together making memories. I got my boyfriend a GoPro Hero 4 and he got me a Macbook Air! so I could start blogging and doing lots of fun things in 2016! YAY
Many people use the holidays to reflect on the year that is passing, and think about what they want to change in the new year. That´s what we made new years resolutions for. I have always set my resolutions but never stuck to them, so I guess that will be my resolution for 2016 haha. 2015 was a very hard year for me, I have had my fair share of worries, stress and anxiety. I have had financial worries for about 3-4 years now and at times I had to choose between paying bills or buying food, as you can imagine that is a very stressful situation, but I did my best and everything worked out in the end, my finances are definitely not that bad anymore but they could be better, I still have a few debts I need to pay off, and I plan to do so this year!
I also worried a lot about my son who is disabled, he has ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and he is visually impaired, -11 on both eyes. Recently he had to go for some tests to check why his vision is this bad, we found out that the retinas in his eyes ( the bipolar cells and ganglion cells) do not function correctly, and he will need more tests done with neurologists and opticians in the future.
Because of all this stress and worrying my mental status has not been so good, I have suffered from depression and anxiety since I was a child, first diagnosed at the age of 10. After all this worrying and stressing all the time, it made me fall in to a deep pit of self destruction, the depression and anxiety made me not want to do anything but sleep, I just recently realised I was not feeling well and got off my ass and tried to make myself feel better. I am doing a little better now, I feel bad but I try not to let it control my life and I am going to make myself feel good asap!
I think 2016 is going to be great, yes there will be times when I won’t feel good at all but you can’t go through life without feeling sad or worried, thats just life. But I am going to remind myself when ever I feel bad in the new year, that it will pass! Im sure there will be a lot more happy times then sad times. I can´t wait to start the new year with 365 blank pages, now I just have to write a great book.
