Hi friends, happy 2018! I asked you on Instagram if you wanted to know my word of the year and you answered!
So last year my word was "present" and boy was that a FAIL!
My goal was to be more present in the things I was doing and not let my anxiety take me away from the moment. And that didn't work. What I did do in 2017 was grow. So I feel like my word should have really been grow. (Who knew). Usually with growth theres a lot of discomfort and changes. I would say that was my year in a nut shell. I worked a lot on my relationships, anxiety and just making my everyday life different and better. It took a lot of work and was exsaushting at times but Im so happy I did it. I think its really setting me up for a much more successful 2018!
Here are some great things that happened in 2017. And some not great things, because despite what Instagram tells you no one's life is perfect.
- Getting engaged!
- A baby nephew
- Professional growth
- A set back in my struggle with anxiety and depression (which Im happy to say now after a lot of work Ive come out of)
- My childhood dog passing away
- Disappointments in friendships
This year Im getting married and I feel like I did a lot of ground work to just enjoy this year. So this year my word is REVEL.
Maybe not all the drinking and dancing but definitely a little bit of it! I just want to enjoy everything that life has in store for me and really soak up this year because this exciting time only comes around once. I worked really hard last year and I think it's time I enjoy it a little!
So tell me whats your word!?
