2019 was probably the most transformative year of my life. Some good, and some very, very bad. My life has completely changed in every possible way. This time last year, I was married, owned a house, worked night shift at the hospital, and lived far away from my family. I was also extremely depressed. Fast-forward to 2020 and I am divorced, have a small one bedroom apartment in a city much closer to my family (including my six year old niece who gives me life), and I quit the job that was making me miserable.
It took the better part of the year for me to be confident with my decisions and to stop feeling guilty and afraid. But I absolutely believe I am better for it. I feel like myself again, which is something I didn't even realize I had lost. And after a few months of roughing it as a freelancer, I found a job that I am truly happy with. I'm slowly piecing together my new life, and even after all the emotional and financial setbacks, I am just happy to be doing it my way.
What big life changes are you contemplating, and what's holding you back? Will 2020 be your year of transformation?
