A lot can happen in a year. And let me tell you, A LOT HAPPENED THIS YEAR. I honestly can say I glowed the f*** up in 2018. In a lot of ways, I became a brand new version of myself. Let me just lay some highlights down for you:
I moved to a beautiful, miraculous, and challenging city. I am officially celebrating my 1-year love affair with New York City, and the relationship is still going strong.
I moved in with a very attractive and loveable man.
I started this blog with my two better halves. And thanks to you and your support it makes me happy to log into every day.
I met such beautiful and amazing people. I made new friendships (which is a daunting thing to do as an adult.) And I kept some great old friends even over a long distance. Shoutout to all my beautiful friends who have visited me!
I’ve begun a career that has so much joy and promises to it. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten out of bed, happy to go to work with such amazing people in a positive environment.
I got ENGAGED. I’ve found someone to plan a life and a journey with. (the attractive and loveable man mentioned above) And with that, I have received a loving and supportive second family. They are such a welcome addition to my life.
And most of all I SURVIVED. I survived in a new city, with a new job, new people, and new experiences. If I had to choose a phrase to describe my entire year, it would be “new beginnings.” Every year is a new chapter, but this year was like the sequel to my first book. I’ve created so many beautiful things for myself. And I’ve also maintained a lot of positive things from my past. It was incredibly challenging to bring two worlds together and find my place in the middle of them – this new life and my old one. Over the past year, I have held my self more accountable, more positive, and more open to change. This was a year dedicated to self-love and transitions.
Bring on 2019!✨
[If you want to use these fill-in 2019 Goals and Habits, we’d love for you to download them. They are available here.]
I have nothing but positive thoughts for 2019. As you can see by my goals, I want to stay in a constant state of positivity and improvement. I’ve just begun building this new life, and I’m determined to make it the best that I can. Just looking at my listed goals, they all seem very basic, to be honest. I know, everyone says they want to save money, everyone says they’re going to go to the gym. But sometimes the most basic and obvious things are the ones that are the hardest. I’m going to take these large goals, and break them down into small specific goals, week by week or month by month. I want to create new habits for 2019 that will last me the rest of my life. I don’t know about you guys, but I am excited for this new year! I hope you are too. There’s nothing but continuing elevation from here on out. Continue on with your positivity and if 2018 wasn’t your year, make sure to make 2019 the one for you.
Stay safe out there and change the world.
