In this time of uncertainty and crisis, I thought it might be nice to share some personal good news. It would also be a good idea for you to reflect on any small good things from life so far this year!
I’m an aunty!
My nephew came into the world at 11pm on 26th January. He’s so gorgeous and sweet! My brother and his wife are so happy and although it was tough, the labour went well. Of course, because of the virus, we haven’t been able to see him and we don’t know when it will be appropriate to do so. So, that’s really upsetting but we’re just so happy to have a new member of the family!
Uni is going well
I’ve handled in another essay that I’m proud of and I’m enjoying my course a lot so far. I’ve just received another 2:1 and a higher mark than last time so that’s comforting and I’m very pleased with it.
It’s been a scary ride since starting in 2019 and now being halfway through my second year. By the end of this year, I’ll be starting third year! I can’t believe how fast it’s all gone, but it has been fun amongst the anxiety. I’m so glad that I finally did it.
Patrick and I are happily engaged (despite my anxiety, I’m happy, I swear!). I’ve slowly come to terms with the idea and I feel a lot less anxiety about it lately. But engagement aside, we ourselves are in a really good place. Even though there’s nothing to do these days, we’re having fun together and appreciating our shared time. He’s also trying to learn to play the keyboard and upskill for his job.
My sister the firefighter
My sister is halfway through her Fire Service training and doing so well! She just passed another level of her training and is about to start the hard part. But she’s ready this time and I know that whatever happens, she’s been so brave and done her very, very best. It’s such a scary profession, and I’m constantly worried for her, but she wants this and she’s doing the thing and god that takes balls!
Moving forwards one and all
In general, my family are all moving forwards and levelling up in 2021 so far. I’m so proud of us all. My mom has been redecorating all alone and doing a boss ass job! Turning our family home into something for herself now has been hard but she’s moving on, getting it done, and I’m proud of her for choosing to do something for herself now that we’ve all moved out of the house.
Please share any exciting or happy news that you have going on right now. I’d love to hear it and share some positivity!
