The time for a recap of the past year has come.
This post is more about me, so if you think that you won’t get any value from it, just skip and move on with your day.
The sole purpose of the post is to show that everything is possible if you want it hard enough and at the same time to be a reminder to never give up, despite everything that may have happened to you.
As always, I’ll be direct:
This was the best fucking year of my life in a loooong time!
How so, you might ask yourself, when it was such a savage year?
Well, you may know that I’ve been suffering from a very serious disease, because of which I had very little chances to regain the last bit of health that I had left, but I kinda hit the health lottery and I got this one last chance!
It took me 10 long years of legit pain, suffering, and misery, until I got to that moment, so I can’t really describe how infinitely grateful I am for what I’ve finally gotten.
Another big thing that I’ve managed to achieve was to beat depression.
Yes, the real one. The one that causes you feel like you are nothing, that convinces you that you are completely worthless, and that makes you think that there is no point in getting out of bed, take a shower, or shave.
Depression is a fucking monster, so never tell someone who shares their feelings with you that they should “just overcome it”… If it were that easy, they would’ve already overcome it. Just listen to them and give them your full support.
That’s how I’ve beaten it. With the invaluable help and support of other people.
Also, I’ve replaced smoking with sports, rotating swimming, cycling, and the gym. I’ve thrown bread and refined sugar away and I’m eating a ton of fruits and vegetables. Processed junk is out too and eggs and meat are my choice of food.
Next big thing that happened was that I wrote a book.
It took me a whole year to write, edit, and publish it. And I failed at selling it, but I don’t care. For me, the whole experience itself was a success.
In addition to all of that, I’ve become a Guardian on Uptrennd.
I met some amazing people, from all over the world. I learned a ton from them. And they helped me keep moving forward and get my shit together.
Thank you very much, everybody!
Yeah, I was lost...
Hell, I was like deep-in-the-jungle lost, but I’ve finally found my way.
There is no more sorrow, no more pain, no more hate. I feel incredibly well!
Of course, luck was involved in all of that, but the truth is that I was prepared to take advantage of it.
And, please, don’t fool yourself, it’s not all roses. It’s still tough as fuck!
It requires a ton of hard work, learning, and perseverance. It takes plenty of time. And I keep pushing myself every single day.
I have to start practicing smiling on photos...
No matter what you may be going through, it will pass. Everything passes. Both the good and the bad periods of your life will pass.
In fact, that’s the only 100% sure thing in the universe – change.
Never give up.
Everything is possible.
Just keep putting the effort, day after day, and be prepared to take advantage of your luck.
Have a great 2021!
