I cannot believe that 2018 is here! I took the first part of 2018 to really reflect on the past year and really think about what I want to do/change moving forward. 2017 was definitely the year of growing for me. I learned so much about myself, and how I want to move forward. I wanted to share with you the things I’ve learned and my 2018 goals.

2017 Reflections

  • To always keep moving forward no matter the setbacks.
  • Don’t rush things
  • Eliminate the bad friends and truly cherish the good ones
  • Be content and find ways to find calmness
  • Try new things, like kickboxing
  • Follow your heart and be open to being vulnerable
  • Be open to meeting complete strangers (heart you MSP bloggers!)
