The year 2019 is going to be a year of
My family is growing as we are expecting a child in May. My career is changing course completely and I am pursuing a path I passionate about. I will be taking on a few courses in the year to fortify my resume. My home is less cluttered and quite minimal. My personal health is on a uphill, and the momentum will continue in the new year, as I educate myself and adopt healthier, more natural and environmentally friendlier habits. Last year was a year of change – I’ve let go of a lot and I’ve undertaken a lot. Last year was rocky, unstable, and transitionary. I feel that some of the efforts I have put forth in 2018 will bring fruit in 2019.
Because I am bringing a child to the world, I feel that I have to be active in shaping it, or I should at least try. There is so much going on in the world and I don’t want to leave it to my children in a state where I can’t say I helped or did something about it. So I have decided to embark on a journey of advocacy and activism.
There are a few topics I am passionate about. Obviously feminism has always been closer to heart. The environment is a big one as my generation is witnessing the change, and future generations will suffer the consequence. Mental health – I have always believed that it was an important conversation (Since my teenage hood) that needs to be had more frequently, more openly and more deeply. These are issues I would like to do something about – even if small but I cannot say look the other way and say “Not my problem”, or “this won’t happen to me”. Because, perhaps it is true, it might not happen to me, but it might happen to my children, and I can not stand by without even trying.
I would like to explore some of these thoughts later, but for now, this is my prologue.
