Reflecting on 2019
Updated: Apr 12, 2020
2019 has felt like I have lived three years in one.
I have learned endless lessons and created endless memories that I will hold with me forever.
I have learned the importance, the difficulties and the rewards of independence. Through so many forms.
I have grasped the value of being alone and the need to be okay with being alone.
I have become more empowered than ever before to take my life into my hands, do what I love, be as unapologetic as I can. Lead my life the way I want to live.
Through relationships; ending and beginning, letting go and strengthening, I have learned the importance they hold in my life.
Through loss and grief I have learned to cherish moments, try harder not to sweat the small stuff, to love harder and feel prouder and to do the things that make me feel alive.
It is so important in my everyday to do good things for myself, but it is crucial to ease away from negative self pressure and allow myself more grace.
I feel so lucky to look back on this past year and think about the beautiful humans I have with me and who I get to spend time with.
My heart is so full. And that is all I could ever ask for. The good doesn't come without the bad but from the bad we have so much to learn from it.
I am so grateful for this year and I am so grateful for this life.
And I will continue to learn. In 2020 and beyond I will, more than ever, love and learn and practice gratitude for this incredible life I get to live.
