2017 was an epic year. I learned a lot. I laughed a lot. I cried a lot. I made good decisions. I made bad decisions. I was very human.
The biggest lesson that I learned was that I need to be my authentic self. God placed a vision in my heart, in my soul, in my being, and I need to chase it down with everything inside of me.
The end of 2017 was H-A-R-D. From Thanksgiving until yesterday, I functioned (barely) through the fog of depression. The sun broke through the fog a few times…but i felt like the dementors in Harry Potter were sitting on my shoulders.
In those six weeks, I relinquished all of the gains I made. Fortunately, I still have the tools…I just need to use them.
Today I started anew. More mindfulness, less television. More journaling, fewer games. More reading, less social media.
2017 is in the rear view mirror…and I say good riddance. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. How do you plan to use it?
