It seems crazy that it’s the end of the year already. It seems to have gone by in a blur and yet, when I think about it, I really have done a lot.
This year, I travelled to Ireland (first time to Europe), Halifax, Chicago, Calgary, and Kelowna. I started working in my chosen field – and have already begun to excel and meet amazing people. My mind grew through experience and through reading, including the TWENTY-SIX books I completed in 2017 (pretty proud of that). I care deeply about some people who I didn’t know before (or know as well). My heart has hurt deeply, many times, almost every time I watch the news. I still don’t usually know what to do about this. I started to understand what it means to have an abundance mindset – and I’m not even that good at it yet but it’s gonna change everything.
It wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be, but I am grateful for every day I had this year. I will continue to fight for gratitude, the act of not taking what I have for granted.
There are many, many things I want to do and be in 2018. I’m not nearly as good as I want to be yet – not as good a person, not as good a sister and daughter and friend. But, like I am a better person now than I was 365 days ago, I’m going to keep improving and striving and failing and getting back up.
