A year ago on January 1st, 2018, I chose to launch my blog. This was a huge accomplishment for me as I spoke about this new endeavour but kept delaying it. I finally told myself that there are no more excuses and I need to just put my brain to good use and launch this blog. A year of constantly updating this page. 2018 was a year of taking risks – some ended well and some did not. One thing is for certain, my blog is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
Some days felt harder to write than other days. I took longer breaks in between than I wanted to. But I did it. I went through an entire year putting my effort in this page. Just for you guys to read my thoughts and understand my crazy brain a little bit more than people normally do. Take a look at my first blog post by clicking here.
What Made Me Start This Blog
I wanted an outlet for my thoughts and passions. There were so many things I wanted to talk about and I needed a platform to do it. This blog has given me my space that I need to make matters that meant something to me be heard. This platform gave me a safe space to talk about the darkest thoughts in my head, all the way to things I am passionate about. If you ever felt like starting a blog, I recommend it. The feeling of satisfaction when everything comes together is indescribable. I thank the universe everyday for giving me the leap of faith to start this platform for myself. I can not wait to see what the future holds.
A New Year Means New Goals, New Adventures, New Accomplishments
I am not sure what 2019 has in store for me but I can only imagine it being better than 2018. Something I find hard to believe since 2018 was great. Even though I had my ups and downs and felt helpless at times, I came back stronger than ever. As years go on, I only grow happier. As someone who has dealt with depression and anxiety, I am slowly having happier years. 2018 was a year that brought me hardships and I almost felt like I took a few steps backwards when it came to mental health. However, I shook out of that and realized this was my happiest year so far. I know 2019 will only bring me more joy.
A Book In The Works???
I have so many goals I am focusing on this year. One thing I have yet to speak about is my book. I am currently writing a book and have finally started to make progress on it. Nothing feels better than realizing your story is falling together finally. A story that has been passed down in my family for generations. The story that brought my mothers family to where they are today. I am extremely excited to hopefully tell you more about it in 2019. I promise you guys will get some exclusive details on my book before anyone else does so stay tuned!
Something I fell back on closer to the end of 2018 was my workout routine. I was doing so well in 2018 and then my brain started crashing. I slowly stopped going as regularly. However, 2019 is the year I put all my energy into myself and only making myself a lot better. So this is something I am going to put heavy focus into. Planning to do a workout post once I get back into the flow of things at the gym.
New School, New Job
2019 – I am starting school again. I am completing a degree in Business Management. Super excited about this opportunity I have been given to expand my education again. Something I am hopeful will bring me to a better place in life an closer to my career goals.
Unfortunately 2018 was also the end of my time with the company I was working for, HomeStars. I made some amazing life long friends there and got the experience I needed after graduating. However, it was time to focus on what I want to do for my future. I needed to go back to school. In the meantime, I am still on a search for a full time position but I want a remote position or closer to home. I am sure my job situation will fall together soon though. Only time will tell but I promise to keep you guys updated.
The Future Is Bright But I Am Brighter
I am confident that I will achieve all my goals in life because I work so hard to achieve them. There is nothing I am looking forward to more than the day I can sit back and say I did it! I work extremely hard to get to that day in my life. I know 2019 will help me put things into place. Looking forward to what is in store for this year and I hope all of you go into 2019 with a positive attitude too! Positive attitude is key to success!!
Keep in mind – when I hit 10k followers on Instagram, I have some exciting news for you all! Cheers to a New Year!
