We are hours away from 2018 and I can’t believe another year has gone by. Now that I’m older I feel as if time just goes by really fast. When I was a kid I just wanted time to go by so I could become an adult, now I just want to pause time and get to enjoy the moment longer. But I guess that’s the side effect of getting older. Sorry for starting the post a bit dark, but I tend to always be a bit pessimistic when it comes to time.
Although I am not a big fan of time, with time also comes good memories and life changing events. This year I finally got to become a US resident which is one of the things I have been dreaming about for a long time. With becoming a US resident I also got the ability to travel out of the country.
I visited my native country which was another dream of mine. I hadn’t been there in 14 years and I am incredibly luck to have been able to go back. I had so much fun and got to see my extended family. It was also the first time Sam and I have left the country which just marks another great milestone in our relationship.
Sam and I also celebrated out first wedding anniversary in December. I am so lucky to have Sam in my life. And every day that passes by is just a reinforcement of that statement. I think the first year of marriage is hard and I’m not afraid to admit that. You have to get used to another person’s everything. You have to compromise more, You have to learn to be much more patient. You have to be much more considerate.
But I am lucky to learn all of this with Sam by my side. And I just believe that 2018 will be much greater. Aside from all the negativity in the world and the injustice, I think 2017 treated me well. And I have high hopes that 2018 will be greater. I expect much more awesome memories and I hope that things get easier for many of us.
I hope all of you guys have a Happy New Year!
