So, when I wrote about loving 2015, there was a lot that I was looking forward to for 2015. I was focused on travelling and sharing my travel tips and stories. Writing this now, it is a sad realisation to say that I am still writing about my Perth trip back in October which was almost a year ago!
In fact, I have written and re-written this post multiple times. Each draft that I had written reflected my mood at the point of writing – there was one full of bitterness, one with much tiredness, another full of rantings. I didn’t post any of these ones.
Life is not fair sometimes and you feel that everything and anything could have happened to you. In fact, I claim responsibility for some of these myself. Negativity drowns you in despair. Yet, it very much depends on your perspective. There are definitely many others with much worse stories than mine. Mine just happens to be a matter of timing.
I decided to count my blessings instead.
Work is unstable and chaotic at this point of time but I am still employed and have means of financially supporting myself.
My finances have been draining these last few months due to necessary circumstances. I shall be grateful that I am still able to live comfortably even though I have had to adjust my lifestyle slightly. I quite like the idea of minimalist living now.
I was not able to travel overseas these last few months. My last trip was in February. I shall look forward to my trip to Europe in November instead as it seems to be my only trip planned for this year. Of course, I also became a tourist in my own country instead, exploring a few other tourist spots. 🙂
So I’m changing my expectations for 2015.
If there is another opportunity for travel, so it shall be. Otherwise, I’ve already had plenty of changes and excitement these last few months and I do not expect this to be any different by the end of 2015.
All I can do is embrace these changes.
Bring it on. 😉
