I see you, 2018.
As I look back on this year, I can't help but deeply reflect on the last 3 years:
•2015 was enlightening. I was thrust into a fantasy world that forever changed my view of the real world. Lots of happiness, but also lots of hurt. So because of this...
•2016 was a lost year. I held back tremendously (by choice, by fear) and therefore missed out on so much "life". What a sad waste, really. So because of this...
•2017 started out aimlessly. But then a heartfelt conversation with my sister turned everything around. Her advice: don't focus on what you can't change. Focus on the things that you can control. What do you want out of life? And what can you DO to make those things happen for yourself? The very next day I started making changes, and it worked.
My talents, desire, spirit, determination...it's all back. It's all flowing. And life is so freaking amazing.
I'll be honest; these past 3 years have scared me. Lots of lost time, but tons of self growth. Looking back, I'm grateful for the weird journey. When you're broken, you get a chance to rebuild. And how damn cool is that?
I totally see you, 2018. 😎
