I wanted to write up a list of new year’s resolutions for the 2019, then I stopped to think about what happened to me during 2018. It hasn’t been an easy year, so I decided to practice gratitude instead.
Ditch new year’s resolutions, go for a gratitude look back
☀️ I am blessed and privileged to have many friends and family in my life that look after me in time of needs, not always when the sun shines.
💻 My Jetpack team at Automattic is the best pack I could have ever thought of working with.
👫 I’m so lucky to be part of those new families (my in-laws and my sister’s in-laws) who turned out to get along with each other so well.
💑 My sister has the most kind and generous partner of the world, I love him so much. I’m grateful to see her serene and happy.
👸🏻 Even if we often clash, my mother was (and is) exactly here for me when my life went to the darkest place.
🦸🏼♂️ My father is my hero and my benchmark for so many things. –
❤️ And then there’s my better half, the person my life depends from for so many aspects. Without him I wouldn’t be a third of the woman that I am.
I do have some new year’s resolutions, though
🧗♀️ My 2018 has been the most difficult year of my life. I struggled, fought, and battled; I felt, I raised, I failed, I suffered, and spat blood and disappointment. But I NEVER gave up, and will never do, because there are friends and people who want me to succeed, see me happy, and support me.
💪 I promise I will never stop running, learning, trying, and getting up after falling down.
I wish and want 2019 to be the year I can say I overcame all the challenges 2018 faced me. And likewise to you all.
