There's a lot of things I could say about 2017, but I think I'm just going to say that 2017 was one hell of a ride! Okay, maybe it was more like a continuous loopty-loop roller coaster, but I digress.
For me, 2017 was probably my most transformative year yet. I know we’re always changing and learning, but I feel that now as I am approaching my mid-thirties, I’m truly discovering the direction that I am supposed to go in this crazy world. I’ve never really strayed from what my loves and passions are, but now, after nearly a year of self-reflection, it’s become clear what my next step is.
The hurdle that I had to overcome to get to this place, was accepting that I am just not like everyone else, and I had to stop comparing myself. I’ve known since I was little that I was not like the "cool kids", but I've still had this completely human feeling in me to want to be like everyone else from time to time, and to simply fit in. That’s just not my reality though, and I have completely accepted it. Finally.
What’s important is that, I have the most amazing and incredibly supportive family there is. I seriously don’t know what I do without them! I also have some of the most kind, smart, beautiful, funny, and amazingly talented friends that a girl could ever ask for.
You won’t find me making silly New Year’s resolutions here. The clock striking midnight does not magically signify a new you. What I am going to do, is continue into 2018 in the exact headspace that I’m currently in and continue along the same path that I’m on now, with the same goals and ambitions.
