2018 The year of Awakening

Fall 2018

2018 was the year of Awakening.

It was filled with passion, successes, grief and many other emotions that I just canโ€™t describe with words. For the first time in 23 years, I took my life into my own hands and decided to start living for Gabriela. I decided to start loving me.

My best friend and I decided that the word for 2018 would be โ€œYesโ€. 2018 would be the year in which we throw ourselves into the deepest end of our uncomfortable and strive. Which is how I found myself taking trips I never imagined, taking risks I never thought I would, loving people my heart was ready for, and fighting for myself. My year was filled with so many wonderful YES, but also just as many NO. As I started respecting myself, I started loving myself and Iโ€™ve learned about self-care and boundaries. Beauty is found in our YES, but also in our NO.

Life is too short and beautiful for us to let fear dictate us, so I donโ€™t let it. After many rejections, and tears I got hired at my dream job. Each day as I take the train to Time Square I thank God for this blessing because if not for embracing my fears I wouldn’t be there.

2017 was the year of lessons and growth, 2018 was the year of awakening and understanding, 2019 will be the year of adventure, success, love, happiness. I speak into existence love, wholeness, passion, success knowing that it will all come to fruition.

As 2018 comes to a close, remember to be proud that you made it through 2018. Youโ€™re strong and you made it through the year of Awakening.

RIP Mac Miller
RIP Jose Rosa
