Better Yourself Bucket List

This year, I really lost myself. By the time I finished my course I was full of self-doubt, depression, anxiety and fear. My anxiety got to the point where I would have a panic attack every night because I would think about the past year and blame myself. It took my friend telling me that I was becoming a toxic person (a bit harshly), for me to see that I was letting the way people treated me, negatively affect others. Althought her words hurt I knew she was right and I am glad she told me because I couldn’t see it. So from that day I told myself I wasn’t going to be negative anymore. I am who I am and that is a great person, those who treat me poorly based on their own insecurities is their problem. It wasn’t that simple though, with anxiety comes a lot of thinking, a lot of self-reflection. Right after my friend said that, I went to Japan for two weeks and for the most part it was great, I was distracted, I didn’t think about everything that happened and was living in the present. While I was there, I wrote a ‘Better Yourself Bucket List’ for me to fulfill my passion for learning and while I haven’t completed any of it, I am working on it. So, here it is…the bucket list to learn everything I want to learn. There’s no set time period because learning is a journey.

I am finally feeling myself again and at this point in time, I am working on getting fit and my Japanese skills. One step at a time…
