Reflection: A look back at 2015 -2016

Reflection: A look back at 2015 -2016.

While I sit here in my computer I’m here thinking back about the last twelve months wondering, how I was seven months sick in bed not able to do anything not wanting to do anything but think about getting better. I did not even want to read, workout, write or even hang out with my friends.

Now that 2016 has come to end most of us are starting the new year reflecting on failures but we never take the chance to focus on the accomplishments.

What I will say that when I started I Renaissance Man, I had started 2015 full of fire and wondered at the time what if We tend to take a lot of what life has for us for granted we tend to let those everyday things that we consider mundane and boring be put to the side for another day.

Yet when we are in a moment of weakness and are not able to have the mindset to do anything that’s when those mundane things become treasure that we so want and desire. I was in sick for months and while I was sick could not go to work yet I desired my job.

I desired my office I desired being around the people that I something had no interest in talking to yet I was now wanting to be my old self I was grateful to my dungeon office.

I was ready to take life back I wanted to be overwhelmed with work so I can get out of my own skin and out of my own head.

 

But as I remember back in 2015 & 2016, I realize that although I had a very bad time in those months I realize the good things have happened to me.

 

What am I grateful for 2015- 2016:

 

I’m grateful for my website Irenaissanceman.com realizing that this site is what is keeping me and making me stronger.

 

Health underlined: I’m grateful that my health has returned to me in late October mid-November this was a fantastic slowly seeing that my strength was returning to me and making me feel better for things that I had set aside to concentrate on my health such as reading, writing, working out, and fixing the site. In addition, I wanted to feel better because my family was coming from Spain.

 

Family: my family visit from Europe in December I’m very grateful that I’m able to see my mother and father and enjoy the holidays with them as I previously tweeted in January 2016 that saying goodbye is the hardest part to family.

 

My apartment: it was a rough start in 2015 I don’t mean health wise but I mean living conditions originally when I first moved to my current apartment unit was not the original unit. The first The first apartment they were about to give me was delayed due to the previous tenant burning down the kitchen. The second apartment that they had given me upon receiving the keys space there was an infestation of termites. So, what I’m grateful for is that the management of the building gave me for the same rent a bigger unit facing the east side.

 

Traveling with family: I’m very grateful that I was able to take my family to visit the northern Florida and visit Saint Augustine. I love it the city is old and quaint, it’s a city that makes you feel like you’re in Europe.

 

I want to conclude this post by saying the 2017 will be a very bright year a positive year a year of prosper accomplishments
