I want to take a moment (like so many others today) to reflect on the journey that was 2023.
For me, and perhaps for many of us, it was a rollercoaster of trials and turbulences.
To be honest, I was at my lowest low I have ever been in my life!
I faced challenges that seemed unfair to me in the early summer.
Losing my job felt like a blow and the end of a relationship by WhatsApp hit me hard.

Dealing with my alcohol abuse and my mental health took me to the lowest point I've ever experienced.
I realized that acknowledging my struggles was the first step towards my healing
It took courage to seek help, to confront the scars and the reminders of those dark days.
There's a saying: “Patience whispers though the morning air, a gentle reminder of the burden I bear. Amidst the storms I believe, with courage and strength I shall achieve.”
I know the road ahead might still have obstacles, but I'm equipped with the knowledge that I can guide myself successfully around them.
I look forward to 2024!
A year full of happiness & good vibes only!
Happy New Year, Everyone!
