Hey future, 2020 Justina,
If everything went according to the plan, now you’re chilling in Sirvintos with your family, your Georgian cat and thinking about all that Christmas/New Year celebration weight you gain. I am sure, this year has been a crazy one. You’ve had doubts when year started, about which place to call home and where you feel the best, but now you finally figured that out. I know that whatever decision you made, it was the right one.
You got to spend time outside in one of the most beautiful places on earth and you traveled to 50 countries. 1/4 from all countries of this world! You, not-still-not-even-thirty-girl, can be proud of this, because when you was a kid, that seemed impossible. In 2019, you had trips with your sisters, you had fascinating travel experience outside of Europe!
You collected a good deal of knowledge through all those years, I am proud of you sharing more about it with others and again writing blog frequently! You’re killing Insta-game, you had opportunity to talk about your experiences in big event and your achievements are shared through social media and even published in print one!
You really missed learning, so I am proud of you that you took time to read more, to take some online courses and learn new things!
Your company is growing and you are growing together with it. In 2019, you became incredible tour operator/guide in Armenia and even more confident about how great you are in what you are doing. You improved your Georgian language skills and started learning Armenian! Your Magical Caucasus is the best travel agency for Lithuanian market in the region (or at least on the way to become)! You are smart and saving money for future home and as well learning how to unclutter yourself from too many possessions you have.
You are in the best shape of your life so far! You have healthy habits and you nourish your body as your soul. Don’t worry about all that feast you had last days. You ran a race and made 12 k! When you was at school running was your torture and you could barely make 300 meters. Look at yourself now! You even can do a headstand now!
You continue loving your friends, growing together with them, supporting in the big life events. You spend time bonding with your family and appreciating who they are. Your family became so close to you and now coming back to Lithuania feels so good. It’s your sanctuary.
And as you’re continue to age, you’re continue to get more awesome. You’ve got time, for everything you dream about now and you will dream in the future. You’re on your way to make all of your dreams come true. You pushed your limits, even you was afraid, but still stepped out of thecomfort zone and look what have you done! This year was freaking forking amazing! And remember that this current version of yourself loves you. And that’s not going to change.
Everything that has happened has lead you to this moment. Don’t change a thing. Everything worked out exactly as it should be. All the puzzle pieces fit, all the paths make sense. All the people were meant to be. All the successes and failures and heartwarming and heartbreaking moments were all worth it. No regrets. You were and are and have been and always will be yourself, and that’s what matters above all.
2010. Me in Georgia for a very first time. Still at high school and with no clue what will happen in future, but knowing it will be great! And having no idea, that Georgia will become my home. Just keep dreaming and working for my goals (even they frequently change!)
