Happy Monday!

We’re just two and a half weeks away from 2016 and today isn’t focused on working out but on what happened in 2015. I keep seeing memes on how 2015 was full of mistakes and how it beat up so many people. I understand many of these memes are meant as “hoping for a better 2016” but they also add the “cause this year sucked.”

I’m sure it did for some of you. But it was also a great year!

So today, let it be a Monday of gratefulness for the things we went through this year. What do I mean?


This year was full of things that kept making me think of the necessity to move back to Miami. To live back in my parents place, rent free, with all of my family close by, with my dog, no hour long commutes and so many other perks. But that’s a huge step back. It would’ve killed me. Not because it’s a bad thing, I love my family and I’m sure they’d be stoked to have me back there. But I moved up north to reach my goals. I don’t plan on leaving without doing so.

So, when I got injured, got into a huge fight with my roommate, who I still consider a blessing in my life, moved in with my aunt and then lost my job due to my injury, I tried to keep my cool. And I did. I got my first interview, for an amazing job in the city at a funeral home, with bigger perks than my last job. But that didn’t end with a new job for me. Then I decided, I’ve been working and going to school full time, at times working two full time jobs while doing full time school (yeah, I barely slept) so maybe this is a sign?

I decided to make the best of it and use it as a time to rest, and by rest, what I meant was I needed to focus on my health, on doing only school for some time and making sure I kicked ass there. I wanted to get back to working out and I wanted to have time to do my therapy sessions. So, that’s what I’m doing. That’s the big outcome of a chain of bad things over the course of the last 6 months. Because of it, I registered full time for school for next semester and I get to spend the holidays at home in Miami with my family and I couldn’t be more excited. So, yeah 2015 wasn’t amazing, but it taught me so much and I am happy. Happiness and growth, what more do I want?

Think about what your 2015 brought and gave you.
