If everyone that left or was removed from my life within the last decade was a flower, I’d have a beautiful garden filled with thorn-covered roses. A beautiful garden filled with lessons and memories that I would admire from afar, but would never think to pick again.
Each year I make it a point to wrap it up with a bit of a reflection, but this isn’t only the end of a year, but also the end of a decade. This decade was filled with absolutely everything, so I’ve found it hard to summarize laughter, tears, heartbreak, love, happiness into a 300-word post. It’s hard to sit here and summarize 3,285 days, when each day signified a different milestone in my life.
Some days felt like a second
many felt like an eternity
every day was a blessing.
2019 was a beautiful year.
I allowed myself to feel, and it felt amazing. I finally took my life into my own hands, and I loved every second of it.
I invested more time in my family
I invested more time in myself
I allowed myself to be vulnerable and grow at work
I said yes to love
I said yes to traveling
I said yes to building new relationships
I said goodbye to anyone toxic
I worked on my craft
and It was a beautiful year filled with so much growth.
2020, I’m ready for all of your blessings.
I’m ready to close the chapter of the past and welcome your new book and pages with an open heart. I pray for love, for success, for happiness, for growth, for peace. I thank you God, and I’m excited about what’s to come!
Happy 2020 Everyone!
