Okaaaaaaay, so 2017 has been not such a great year for me. I had to go through a lot of stuff which affected me mentally and physically but even in the darkest times, there were moments I was thankful for. So, I thought why not say it out loud and thank the people and stuff I was grateful for.
Enough of the gloomy stuff, Meeeeerry Christmas (in advance) everybody! ❤ Hope you guys have a great day and an awesooooome year ahead!! And I hope your every moment is filled with happiness and love.
Things I’ve been grateful for this year:
💟 My parents, especially my mom for trying to understand what I was going through. for just being by my side. Without her support, this year would have been a tough ride.
💟 BOOKS. The eternal love of my life. Books+Me= Life. Seriously, I would have been lost if I hadn’t found my way to books! They helped me not go totally crazy and also my escape from reality when I needed to clear my head.
💟 BTS. I can not be thankful enough. I don’t even want to think what my life was without them. Their songs, their craziness is indeed helping me to stay positive. BTS never fails to bring a smile on my face. And the ARMY family. Oh, my goodness, I can’t even begin to say… they are awesome. I have gained a whole new family and they have also become my favourite people in the world. Love you fam! ❤
💟 I’m also super grateful to English subbers. They seriously need a big shout out!! I mean without them, I couldn’t have understood a single thing my bias and my favourite group was saying. I sooo want to learn Korean but well, I will someday! Also, K-Dramas!! Thank god for the subtitles and those who take time to translate everything to English for us, international fans!
💟 This beautiful blogging community. Thank you for welcoming me into your bookish family, for staying by my side all this time. As a result, I have gained so many amazing friends. I’m sooo thankful to my friends and followers for continuing to support me! Love you guys! ❤
Memorable stuff in 2017:
💟 2017 was a successful blogging year. I was really happy with my blogging life. I don’t care about the stats or anything else, like seriously (most of the times) but I’m happy that I made new friends and well, I just love blogging, okay. It makes me happy! And books! (And BTS.)
💟 I finally gathered the courage to get help for my depression and anxiety with my mom by my side. And things are getting a little better step by step. (Though my lose my shit then and again.)
💟 I lost a looot of weight. For myself. I needed to for health reasons.
[Side note: I realised my body image issues were not from stemmed from within but from what the society has been constantly saying you have to look like that, you have to look like this to be perfect. Society can go to hell! Like seriously!
Anyway, a lot of people in my class and neighbourhood started noticing the change and they were like “oooh, you lost so much weight.” The first few times, I was kinda happy that okay, my efforts were working but then I started to feel irritated. Why should my body matter to anybody else before me! What’s wrong with being chubby. And why do people have to point that out if anybody is overweight or underweight! Why! Can’t they just keep their mouth shut and take care of their lives first! Okay, okay rant over and I also, hereby proudly admit I’m a cute little potato. Nah, but seriously the society needs a change.]
💟 I also finally got a new phone. Yayieee! My old one which I used for 6 years was barely working, so it’s a refreshing change now. 😀
💟 I plastered my bedroom wall with all the fangirly stuff I could find. Quotes, inspirations and of course my love for countless fandoms! But there were a loooot of posters to put up, I could have done it alone without the help of my little brother. And it was super fun, while BTS was playing on a loop.
So guys, how was 2017 for you? Was it an overall good year or meh? What are your most memorable moments this year??
