How I Saw In 2022

As Katie mentioned in her last post, she’s currently isolating. We both contracted covid after an unfortunate family get together, that lead to all of us getting positive tests in the days after.

I basically have had every mild symptom of covid possible. I have had a cracking headache that saw me buried into the depths of my duvet closing my eyes tightly against the pain. I was confused and delirious trying to write my essay due in for the 10th. I was tired, obviously, everything tasted salty, and I was feverishly flitting from too hot to too cold as though I was earning points with each random temperature I acquired.

I remember when getting sick used to knock me sideways mentally. I would spiral into a depressive episode and my optimism lay sleeping beside me. I think over 2021, my growth of resilience has changed me for the better. I was not defeated by covid the way I thought it could do for me mentally. Instead, I looked after myself, loved on myself, cried and complained when I needed to, but most of all I promised myself: tomorrow will be better.

New Years Eve alone had the potential to be a bad one.

I think though, it was one of the best New Year’s ever. I sang loudly to all of my favourite songs, so much so that I lost my voice in the morning. I laughed a lot, reminisced with my plethora of songs, and sat on my windowsill watching all the fireworks with such a childish joy that I almost cried.

It was lovely and it was peaceful; mostly it was a gently surprising moment.

2022 arrived exactly as it was meant to and I rang it in the only way I know how; with love and laughter.

Wishing you the happiest, most fruitful 2022. I hope you achieve your goals, and I hope you feel more love than you realised possible.

See you soon, my friends. We made it! Enjoy it.

  1. So well written and well said! Your attitude is amazing! Thank you for sharing and inspiring us to keep getting back up when we get knocked down. It does make us stronger. You and your sister are both strong young women with wonderful hearts. I hope you both fell so much better soon. Good health and much happiness to both of you in 2022. Keep up the amazing work and hold on to that childish joy. ❤

  2. Another New Year roared in as I lay on the couch feeling miserable, but I’m used to it. Always sick at least once in the holiday season. Hopeful I can get through the rest of the month well. Glad you’re feeling better.

  3. 👌👌👌✒ Because there were a lot of healthy people on the Titanic, but those who were lucky survived, the girls wish you a lot of luck in the New Year🌹🌞💝🤗

  4. You and Katie were prayed over for the New Year. We do not know the ins and outs of why Father allows us to sometimes suffer, or even die, when folks are talking to Him about us and looking for our good, but He holds us in His loving hands, even when we do not feel their support. Jesus is still there for you. “I believe in the sun even when it is not shining; And I believe in love, even when there’s no one there. And I believe in God, even when He is silent.” (by an unknown prisoner during WW2)

  5. Thank you for sharing!!.. hope you and your family have a speedy recovery and ready for the new year and new adventures!.. 🙂

    Hope you have the mostest wonderful new year ever filled with love and happiness and until we meet again..

    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
