What The F Happened

I’m not even sure where to start with this one. I obviously can’t get into what my life has been since my last post (a whole 7 months ago, whoops) without referencing the small matter of the global pandemic going on, but I’m not going to get into that too much. I don’t know about you but every other article I see is in reference to the pandemic in one way or another and I am feeling so done with it.

Now, where do I even start… My solo trip around Europe got cut short. When I came home in March I really, truly thought that by August I would be living it up in Greece, but here we are, I haven’t left the UK since I returned. I think since I realised travel just wasn’t on the cards for me this year it’s been hard to face the thought of talking about one of the best things I’ve ever done with my life and the fact I’m not still doing it.

I think i’ll save my trip as a whole for another post, but to summarise – travelling alone: 10/10 will be doing it again.

As for what’s going on now, life has been pretty wild and not in the fun and exciting way you’d want wild to be referring to. However, no dark cloud lingers forever and no matter how dark they all have a silver lining. Although this year has not at all gone how I planned, there have been SO many positives.

I’ve made new friends, learned new skills, changed my travel plans, updated my life goals and worked on my mental health. I can honestly say that if this year had gone how I thought it was going to go, I don’t at all think I’d be in a place as mentally strong as I am today.

The pandemic has been seriously hard on a lot of people, but I think at a time like this it’s crucial to take note of the bad and process it, but focus on the good no matter how small.
