Happy New Year!
So here I am looking forward to this year, hoping great things happen and trying to ignore the bad. I started off the year at the beach with my family, like I usually do, which always fills me with hope for the new year.
This year however, I’m scared because we ended 2019 and started 2020 experiencing earthquakes here in Puerto Rico. I spent a few days in the region where they are occurring and thankfully didn’t feel anything, but it was and still is happening. There are some theories but we don’t really know why this is happening.
I don’t think being afraid is a good way to start the year; I’d rather welcome it with hope and joy. A positive mindset brings other positive things, so even if scary things are happening around me, I try to focus on the positive things and be thankful for them. Things like getting to spend time with my cousins who are visiting, the rest of my family and my friends, it’s been a happy Christmas, I had a short vacation, we’re all healthy, I still have a job, I’m still seizure free, and my dogs are happy and healthy.
I hope everyone had or is having a great Christmas. Enjoy every second left in your Christmas because we have to wait a year until it happens again. I also wish you all a wonderful new year, full of great things.
