New Years Eve! That time of the year has finally arrived. 2018 came and went. There were highs and lows, but we got through it. That’s all that matters to me. We’re still standing. Looking forward to 2019! So many adventures and things to do. I’m really excited! πŸ™‚

MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: DECEMBER 24-30, 2018.

The holidays are in full swing! Two weeks of break. Woo!!! There was a lot of preparation, gift wrapping, and cooking. The sisters and I were pretty tired after Christmas, but it was well worth it.

There was a few days of rain, the lull after Christmas Day, and patiently awaiting 2019! It was a good week.

Healing.

It’s been a week of solitude. I’ve also been around my sisters a lot. They give me STRENGTH.

I’m healing in many ways. I’ve decided to reach out to my therapist again. It’s nice to have another voice you can reason with, whether you’re dealing with the good or the bad. It felt great to reconnect again!

I’m looking through my pictures and hoping to start posting again. Slowly getting back to my usual routine. I hope everyone’s been doing well!

I’d also like to mention Natalie Corona, a rookie officer who was killed in Davis a few days ago. Davis has a special place in my heart. So many college memories! I couldn’t believe it when I heard the news on social media. Gone too soon. Thank you for your service. RIP. ❀

It’s a new week! Hoping to tackle a lot. I’ve been watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Her folding methods are awesome! Haha.

Sending you all good vibes!

LET ME THINK 29.

I’m not in a good place right now. 2019 just started and there’s too much going on.

Mental health is important and I’m taking steps to take care of myself holistically. These last few days have been difficult. Being belittled and feeling insignificant is damning.

But I’m taking my power back.

I’ll be on hiatus for now. I still want to complete what’s left of my 2018 weekly photo entries. But I’m quite broken and incomplete. I just need time to myself.

Thanks and see y’all on the other side!

MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: DECEMBER 3-9, 2018.

It was a typical week. Another week closer to winter break! There was a lot of junk food, catching up with family, and a doctor’s appointment.

I also started my holiday shopping. No matter how early I start, I’m still scrambling by the time it’s Christmas. Time just flies! It can be a bit frustrating, but ultimately it must be done. I always set a budget too.

Farewell 2018, Hello 2019!

2018 was a trip. So many new experiences, places visited, and changes. We dealt with a lot of loss. It’s sad and heartbreaking, but it’s all part of the circle of life.

Loss always teaches me a lesson. The lesson from 2018: to love. Affection and all of that is what I want, but I ultimately don’t know how to do that. For example: hugging folks. If it’s reciprocated, sure. But if I’m the giver of it, I find myself being odd & awkward. I guess it’s just practice. Being willing to be open minded.

Reconnecting was another theme for 2018. We were so out of the loop, then we finally resurfaced. At the end of the day, family is all you have. Not everyone will see eye to eye, but somehow you gotta make it work. And even if it’s from a distance or full on separation, it’s important to respect each other no matter what. That’s growth.

I’m going to keep this short. I’m just going to continue to work hard, practice gratitude, and uplift myself through the good and bad. Growth is what I always strive for. I’m looking forward to 2019! Adventure is out there.

Peace and love,
