My Letter to 2021
My letter to 2021
The year that gave a lot of memories, some good and some bad. The year I realized that the working world is extremely hard to break into and that the twenties are a time to figure out your life's path. My motto going into 2021 after 2020 was ‘go and explore because life is too freaking short.’
Dear 2021 thank you for the traveling memories and everything that you gave me. I got to do the wildest of hikes and explore more of So Cal while doing so. From Utah to the tip of Maine I got to travel the United States and get a bigger perspective of God's green earth. I didn’t get to go to Spain but I gained a camera full of memories and adventures to never shut up about. I also got to profill my lifelong goal of going to Orlando, Florida which is a win in my book.
Dear 2021 thank you for giving me all the family memories and realizing how important it is to be around the people they love. At the beginning of 2021, I didn’t think my grandparents would be coming to my brother's delayed wedding. Low and behold though almost my entire family came out to the special occasion and it made me so incredibly happy. It was the month of July that made me realize the importance of being around the people you love.
Dear 2021 thank you for understanding what it means to keep on pushing. 2021 will always be significant to me because it's the year I graduated from College. My college experience was extremely underwhelming and it made me realize what it meant to fully live out your life. I, unfortunately, will only have a brief set of memories for my college life and I can’t say they were all good.
Dear 2021 you gave me my dream car. I’ve dreamed about owning a jeep since I was 12 and I can't believe I am a proud jeep owner. I want to use it to explore the world and be an off-roading queen. I can’t wait to create memories in such an awesome car.
Dear 2021 thank you for letting me get through the rough moments. To be honest I’ve never been so lost in life. I don’t know what direction to go and I have been trying to get back into the church in hopes God can give me the answer. I applied and lost so many times and I hope I come out winning one of these days.
Dear 2021 thank you for letting me explore new passions. A year ago if I told you I read 40 plus books in a year I would have laughed. I am now officially book obsessed and TikTok isn’t helping me out with the numerous recommendations it gives me every day. I also realized how much I love to create videos and TikTok has allowed me to explore a different side of content creation.
Dear 2021 you let me turn 22 years old which is an odd age for me to turn considering I was singing 22 by T-Swift when I was 12 thinking I’d never get to this age. The twenties is such an odd time to be alive considering mentally sometimes I feel like I’m still stuck in my teens. I’m now realizing that teens see me as old and that older folks still see me as young. All I can say is what a weird time to be alive.
My message to 2022 would be to keep searching for your purpose, keep pushing, and keep your head up high. My parents keep telling me that things will work out in God's timing and that it takes time to land. I guess I’m a little lost and a little impatient cause I don't know where I’ll be this time next year or even in a month. I guess I just don’t see a point in working a job that makes you feel trapped and pays the bare minimum. So as I am posting this I am manifesting that by the end of 2022 I can find a career job or make my passions into a proper career.
My name is Mia and I hope to share my travel and life experience with you!
