I survived 2017! (new year post I know)

2017 is indeed the most challenging year to date. It is where I had a string of health issues, encountered a lot of financial constraints and trust issues with colleagues that I never knew existed, that makes me demotivated to do anything and everything, blogging included.


2017 is where I found out that I had scoliosis, the constant pain in my back because of the weight has caused this, forcing me to rely on backpacks (I don’t mind really, I was also given a backpack by my Boyfriend last Christmas of 2016) which is really helpful for my things.

2017 is also where I had my very first surgery due to gallstones. My surgeon advised me to have the Laparocolostomy procedure done asap for the pain already reaches my back. It was a risky move, but good thing I did it for I feel much better now than before.

Financial constraints are also included in my list of booboos this year, It’s been a burden to juggle all the finances in the house that I can only pray to God to just make it all disappear.

Yes I did mention that I had some trust issues with people, blame it on the people around me who I think disliked me since day one. In a way, I am thankful that this course is (almost) over because of another chance in life. I should focus and do much, much better, and not to ruin that another chance again.

that is why this year, my goal is to be more braver this year. I remember seeing this hashtag from my former colleague/friend’s IG feed about her wins from last year and her goals for this promising year 2018.

So here are my wins/blessings from last year:

I get to go to Toycon! (and write about it of course!)
I got a new car! (not the die-cast one, but a real one, currently using it for business)
(unintentionally) lost a lot of weight after the surgery
gained new friends at the office who i can rely on (thank you dearies!)
I got to meet my blogger idol Tricia Gosingtian (saving this for another post)
got into the real mountain climbing experience before my birthday

I am thankful to the Lord that I survived 2017 with real battle scars! thank you dear family, #LeBoyf, Coro, blogging friends and office friends for making this possible.

I have no idea what this year has in store for me, I’m just hoping that 2018 will be a good one for me and for my family.

Now off to the #Braver2018!
