I’ve been reflecting during the last month of 2018. For me, it was the year of powering through grief and surviving the first year of loss. Also, wrapping my head around the previous losses and finding a way to deal with it all. It was about learning that when it comes to feelings there’s no right or wrong. I’ve learned that it’s okay to feel defeated and to lose as long as my aim focuses back on the future.
I think the best lesson I’ve learned this year is that life never gets easier. Even though hard situations may linger, you have to adapt and find what inspires you. Once you know what your passions, hopes and dreams, are protect them. Don’t let anyone convince you that what you’re doing is wrong. If I had listened to all these negative remarks I wouldn’t have known what I’m capable of. I wouldn’t have opened this blog and met all these inspirational bloggers.
2018 you’ve taught me better ways to deal with all this craziness and chaos around me. Now I’m sure that you can either let the past drain you or inspire you enough to create beauty out of it. You just need to keep navigating in different directions and hit some walls to learn what works.
2018, you’ve taught me to write without limitations. You’ve taught me to stop judging my writing and step away from the keyboard. (https://couchtalkwisdom.wordpress.com/ I added that in for you. 😛 You’re welcome!)
2018 you’ve taught me to say, “Enough”. Enough drama, enough sadness, enough negativity.
You taught me the ability to step back and ask myself: Is it necessary to keep going like this or is there a better way?
2018, thank you for all the supporting and loving people you sent my way. I appreciate and love all of you. I hope I can always remind you all that dreams have no limitations or an expiry date. If you fall you can always get up and keep on powering through to the next chapter.
