(2nd round of questions on Twenty Something Bloggers' fortnightly debate.)
It's time for new years resolutions. What is one thing about yourself that you are definitely NOT changing?
I've had some hard times last year, in relation to family, my career (& finances), my friends, and my love life - basically all aspects of my life! (Again, quarterlife crisis, anyone??) I think the one thing about myself that I am keeping is my optimism.
I've always been quite an optimistic, happy person, and yeah ok, I wasn't so optimistic during the last quarter of the year, but seeing how everything's turned around so quickly has really brought it back to stay! Being jobless for so long, then suddenly being offered a job and then getting another interview (still haven't heard back yet, btw); being single for a year and a half, and then towards then end when I was realizing that although for the most part I didn't mind it, I was ready for a relationship again, Colin came into my life and turned it upside down and brought it right back up again, higher than I was before; even finding out who my real friends are - I have to say, everything really is ok in the end, even though this is really more the end of a beginning.
This year, I refuse to get suckered down into another "my life sucks, I'm so depressed" mode, because, as I said above, everything really does turn out fine, if not better.
If anything, I have to be an optimist now that I'm in a long distance relationship. It's going to be tough, and being depressed about it will only make it tougher. So, dear God, I will cling on to my optimism as hard as I can, because He only knows I'll really need it this year, if only to keep my relationship alive.
