to 2018: before we part ways — i’d like to show my gratitude for the last twelve months. i’m grateful for the wins, the losses and the learnings yielded from both. i’ve known who i am for a long time but you exposed me to new layers of myself. you challenged me to reflect more, to ask more questions, to take a closer look at my relationships — most importantly, you taught me to see my worth and love myself fully, and to hold others accountable to doing the same. lessons hold no value unless acted upon, so in 2019 i promise these things: i will be bolder than I’ve ever been, i’ll be more vulnerable than i’ve ever been, i’ll say yes more, i’ll only choose those who choose me and i will make sure the people i love know how much value they add to my life. lastly, i will fall in love (with someone who sees my worth as i see it). 2018, i see little to correct and nothing to regret—cheers to me and you. salud!
