One thing I’ve learned about myself from 2018 is that I’m a goal setter and planner. I thrive when I have a list, my planner and what I want to achieve written down. I lost 22 pounds last year, hit many milestones in my blogging and vlogging career, and really discovered who I was. I believe I owe all that to planning, as crazy as it sounds. I thought of what I wanted and I went after it. It seems like a simple thought but if you’re not willing to put the work in, nothing is going to change. I want to carry this motivation into 2019 but make it even more intentional.
Last year I wrote a blog post about all my favorite purchases of 2017, so to keep the tradition alive… here we are again! I just reviewed that post and its interesting to go back and see what I loved that year. Some of the items on my list were gifts and some were purchased by me – either way they have been well loved.
2018 was one of the fastest years of my life! It has also been one of the hardest for me. I’ve been through a lot of shit this year. It was hard for me to find joy in writing this post at all. I’m glad I decided to do it though because it was nice looking back on the GOOD things that actually happened. Here’s to hoping for a better 2019!
OH MY GOD. How is this day already here. This entire week I’ve been having mixed emotions about my tiny babies turning TEN. TENNNNN! HOW?! I can’t handle this you guys.
