2018 was the year of Awakening.
It was filled with passion, successes, grief and many other emotions that I just can’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 “Yes”. 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 I’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 don’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. You’re strong and you made it through the year of Awakening.
