Happy 2018 Verbs!
Reflecting on 2017.
Thinking back on the good, the bad, and everything in between of 2017 helped me become truly thankful for where God has brought me through. I started off 2017 with this fire to make it a much more positive year then 2016, and I succeed — Endo Awareness Month in March was AMAZING, I fell in love, bought a house, and got a new job.
However, there where major speed bumps that made stopped in my tracks and slowed down my progress — My grandmother passing, my aunt passing a week later, my cancer scare, and a few Endo flares that I haven’t had in over 8 months.
Life is tricky.
We sometimes think speed bumps are stop signs, and in hindsight all we needed to do is switch gears.
I would be silly to think that in 2018 nothing bad will ever happen. I just want to be wise enough to know that everything that happens is pushing me towards my desired outcome, so I just need to BE in every moment.
I need to BE present in every moment.
I need to BE happy no matter the circumstance.
I need to BE free to express myself.
I need to BE authentic enough to share in a way that helps others.
This year I want to BE exactly who I supposed to be and do the things I supposed to be doing no matter my circumstances. And if I am being fully transparent, I have already been tested. I the first of January was supposed to be dedicated to making video, and my eye decided to swell up on New Years Eve. I got a little discharged, but the first of January isn’t over and the videos are coming!!
My word for 2018 is “BE“, and I plan to live up to it!
