A friend of mine posted this on Facebook the other day, and it kind of blew me away at how completely spot-on it is for my life.
In 2014, I was completely transformed, getting pregnant and giving birth to my son. The following year was completely eye-opening as I settled into motherhood and transitioned to a new role at my job.
Then came 2016. Fuck, 2016. The death of loved ones. Watching friends endure unbearably painful experiences of loss. The election. Cancer.
In 2017, I had to rebuild, mentally and physically. It was a long, incredibly difficult process (and I’m still working on it).
I was nervous for 2018, but it has been a year of growth in so many ways. I’ve gotten to a pretty good place mentally. I still have tough days, but overall, I’m doing so much better. And I’ve achieved some goals in my professional life, and I feel inspired and excited for what the coming year may hold for that part of my life.
So on this 2019 eve, I feel happy. Hopeful. Ready.
I wish you all a fantastic new year full of good health, happiness and prosperity. Here’s to 2019! May it treat us all well!
