Happy Tuesday everyone! And happy me - another great day of work, and Blogtember of course!
So the day 6, and today's topic: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.
I won't really describe the particular date, time, or feeling. It was just one of the greatest periods in my life.
Before that, - I've been struggling a lot. Dealing with all teenage issues, living in a wrong place, wrong family. Never being understood, loved, and care about.
You might say: 'oh yeah.. we all been there. And it was just another teenagers point of view, or something like that.' But being honest - people who know me, or especially my sister - knows that all the things I've mentioned above were true. And it was my life.
I've never had a good friendship with my mom. Either with my dad. My parents got divorced when I was 10 years old, and the life just fell apart since then. Even before - I can't remember any good day, without any struggles, or any conflicts at home. It was some kind of a hell. And after my parents divorced, I though that all will get better, - hell no! The same hell - just new devils.
SO. The big, and the dream day has come - I graduated school, packed all my stuff, and ran away.
Remember the day when I woke up early, got in a car, drove to the airport, sat on a plane, and finally came to London - that was such a relief!
The new life started. New people, friends, new love, new some kind of a 'family'.. everything was new.
It wasn't perfect of course.. There were moments when I was completely alone, all by myself. With my fears, and feelings. And I faced the moment when I understood - if not now, then never. So you better get your butt up, and do what you have to. And you will see, - the good things will come along.
And they did :)
Since then I learnt a lot about life. I admit, that mostly I have to be grateful for all the people I've met. I've learnt so much from them. And the most important - I've learnt that there's nothing to be afraid of. That if something goes wrong - you are not a fool, or a looser. It just didn't work out this time. But you still are the winner, cause you've tried, you did all your best, and in the end - you did something. You didn't just sit, and waited for things to come. You tried to get them yourself.
And every now and then, when I share my stories with people, they get surprised and ask me: 'But how could you just pack all your stuff, and go to nowhere?! there wasn't anyone who waited for you.. You didn't know where to go. You didn't have a home there. You just packed your stuff, and flew away?! How come???' Yeah. I don't know how. But I know why - I wasn't happy with my current life at that time, and I knew - that there's no one responsible for my life. No one will come and will change anything. I'm the one who will do that. And I did :)
And I'm still in a process. But finally everything seems to be much better now, and more steady. Less up, and downs. Less confusion. And I'm the happiest ever. Today, yesterday, and hopefully tomorrow! :)
