I want to thank you 2017 for being so good to me this year.
You pushed me outside of my comfort zone.
You challenged me to be the PR pro I want to be.
You helped me find peace with myself and give myself grace.
You showed me the true power of gratitude.
You helped me believe in myself.
You gave me new hobbies like reading and CrossFit.
You taught me how to not be so hard on myself, but to also never give up.
You showed me that it’s possible to slow down in the midst of busy seasons.
You made me realize that there’s a lot more to life than to moving onto the next milestone.
You listened to me and guided me to where I needed to be.
2017, thank you for everything.
While I’m still far from who I’m going to become, I’m feeling much closer to who I’m meant to be.
You’ve allowed me to embrace myself. To be proud of who I am. Quirks and a heart on my sleeve and all. I feel more like myself every day.
And I thank you for that.
While I don’t know what 2018 will bring, I plan to carry what I learned this year with me.
I plan to give myself grace in busy seasons…
To forgive myself when I fail
To be thankful every single day
To love myself for who I am
To believe in myself
To make a positive difference every day
To have patience and strength
To understand that some things can’t change
But to also embrace change
To hold onto slow moments
To love others harder than I have ever before
To trust the process
Thank you 2017. For everything. This year was truly one of the best.
