Would mean to look back at all that was … and wasn’t.
Words are so powerful and I have been speaking what I perceived as horridness this year into existence. So much so, that it has become me. It’s no doubt that this year was hard for me. But so many good things happened this year too. It’s hard but I’m learning to be intentional about being grateful.
So the good -that’s what I choose to reflect on. Because for every bad thing that happened, something good came of it. For every discouraging moment that tried to drown me, came a moment of understanding and resilience. Writing found its way back into my life as medicine, each time anxiety reared its head. And I found love of self again after months of feeling unworthy of it.
Awesome things that happened this year:
1 – I went to Jamaica, twice
2 – I did my first pop up
3 – I networked with so many amazing people
4 – My grandmother beat breast and lung cancer
5 – My grandfather celebrated his 74th birthday
6 – I decided that in 2020/1 I will be moving to *******
7 – I learned (and continue to learn) so many things about myself
8 – This year was the first year that we had a Thanksgiving dinner (since the passing of my other grandfather). It was filled with high energy and lots of love.
9 – I opened my business account
10 – Omg, I almost forgot – I got my licensessss!
11 – I had my first photoshoot for my business
We’ve still got a few weeks to go and I can honestly say for the first time ALL YEAR, I feel hopeful.
