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,
