2020- The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Hello Wild Ones ❣❣❣❣

I hope you are well and taking really good care of yourself. I hope you know how amazing you are and never let anyone put you down. I am currently full of hope and have a very busy schedule but I am surviving. Side Note: See how good I look I was modeling for my auntie’s Instagram shop, If you are in Kenya check it out here.

The Good

Blog– I started this blog this year and it is one of the best decisions I ever made. I am so glad I followed my gut and invested my money and time into this. I have learnt so much about myself and met amazing people through my blog.

Mental Health– I have never been a good place like I have been this year. I mean I had really bad days and I hit rock bottom. I am grateful for everyone who was part of my journey even those who drove me to rock bottom. I wouldn’t be as awesome as I am if it weren’t for you.

School– I was able to keep going to school in the middle of a pandemic. It was hectic and tiresome but I am grateful that I am still on track to graduate in 2022 hopefully.

New Friends– I made really good friends and I met really amazing people who have turned my life around. The best part is that some I never even planned to meet and the impact they have done in my life is amazing.

The Bad

Loss of Friends– I also lost friends this year. People I thought I was going to be with all my life. We don’t talk at all. It hurt a lot but if I am being honest, I wouldn’t want to ever see them again. Not because I hate them, it’s just easier.

Pressure– School felt like teachers just found excuses to give more work since we were online. It was a lot of pressure and the desire to come out of the Pandemic with accomplishments and growth was immense.

The Ugly

Corona– The pandemic brought with it so much loss and pain. It’s scary to not know how tomorrow will look like especially for me but we hope for the best.

Mental Health– I hit rock bottom this year with my mental health. I felt really suicidal for a very long period and I am so glad I survived those hard days.

    It’s good to see you are back^_^

    The good, the bad and the ugly are all a bit intertwined for me this year:

    The good:
    I have been able to work from home and Husband receives PIP. We are both well, considering everything. Our families are well.
    Our families, friends and neighbours have been thoughtful and generous.
    We have found ways to cope and use our time.

    The bad:
    COVID-19 has left Husband feeling isolated in particular, which as impacted his mental health and confidence tremendously. When the strict lockdown ended and he went for a walk with me one night (he had to shield as he had been identified as clinically vulnerable) it was the first time he had left the house and garden in 115 days.

    Other people.
    People who don’t behave responsibly in the interest of everyone else. People who believe in and spread conspiracy theories which have caused people to doubt science and facts. People who don’t understand that we are still in a crisis and who get snarky with the team when we cannot post them a Β£200 book from another lendng library.

    The ugly:
    COVID-19 itself, and how it has disrupted the lives of everyone.

    My mother’s funeral in January and the subsequent dispute between my brother and us other siblings regarding what to do with my mother’s estate.

    Indeed the year has had some both positive and negative things. I lost my mum this year, and it changed my life completely. But, I thank God for continuing to comfort me. Breakups, disappointments, cutting some friends etc.

    But the year has also had it’s share if positivity to me. I was able to meet new friends, strengthen older friendships, a midst the pandemic. I was also able to get to understand the career path I will take and many more.

    I know next year I will be stronger, enlightened more than this year. All Thanks be to God for this far.

  4. I’m happy you’re shining through it all Jackie! I really wanted to start working on a job this year but now that it’s over, I’m most glad for not catching the virus or seeing the passing of any loved ones. I am also very hopeful for 2021 nonetheless. God is on my side!

    Cheers to the Christmas festivities!!!

    1. jackie says:

      The virus really did give a scare that’s a something to be grateful for. I hope the year brings you peace and hope.

  5. Congratulations on coming this far.
    My good – it has been the best writing year I’ve ever had. So many opportunities to write and keep writing. Also, I did some very wide-range reading, things I would never have come to on my own..
    The bad – hit new lows with my mental health and that was bad but also eye opening.
    The ugly – relationship fallouts.

    But when all is said and done, it has largely been a good year for me.
