I’m back… Even though my last post was on sushi at JW Marriot (which I still go to at least once a month for sushi sundays as it is so delicious), I’ve not been inspired at all this year as I’ve had a bit of a rough patch.
You know those times when people say things to make you feel better like: “stay positive”.. “don’t worry things will look up”.. ” you are better off ” “someday you will look back and laugh”.. yes those people that are great to have around for their positivity but you really just want to punch them in the face. Because reality is you’re 31, jobless, broke, single, making toasted sandwiches on a Thursday night watching ‘He’s just not that into you’ alone when 5 years ago you use to be popping bottles in clubs – and skinny(!)
BTW isn’t it funny what “friends” you have when you have nothing to give except your time?
This year without sounding dramatic, has honestly been one of the worst in my life. I really did hit rock bottom.
I recieved news last week my dad had a life threatening health scare and my friends around me have also had illnesses or accidents, humdilah everyone is safe and OK. It then occurred to me how much I let my situaton control my life this year. I am slowly getting things back together, and with the support of amazing friends and an amazing man in my life (more on that later), I’ve finally got the confidence to go directly towards my dreams.
Life is too short to waste on making money for other people, working your guts on a job you do not love , surrounding yourself with people who don’t deserve your time or heart and letting any situation or person control your life.
Follow your dreams, live for today and tell the people who matter how much you love them.
Dubai, you have tried to break me – I’m a fighter, I will come back stronger and will always believe everything truly happens for a reason.
