Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

In 2016, I was in the pits that I never thought I would ever escape out of. To many, my life was going perfectly and I surely had no reason to complain. Only a select few knew I was struggling… As that year ended My Father in heaven showed me that my course would have to change…2017 became a year of rising… I kept climbing out of the troughs. Running helped me see that I can accomplish anything that I set my mind to. Patience. Resilience. Mental toughness. All that seemed impossible became possible. My focus became redirected.
I am immensely grateful to my loving and supportive husband, baby girl, parents, sisters and new bro, Unni, and mentors who helped guide and encourage me.
I needed to find all that made my soul feel Positive. Excited. Motivated. Encouraged. I know that I can never lower my expectations for myself to please anyone ever again. I did that for years so others would feel comfortable and it turned me into someone I no longer wish to be.
Figuring out my flaws and how to keep improving and working on finding the balance that I need.
Be careful how you criticize and judge others, as I have learned that sometimes you just cannot understand without first hand experience (sympathy). Hence best to learn to show empathy in all situations ❀️ 🌺 🌸 🌹…
If being vulnerable and sharing my struggles makes me not tough or not strong, I do not care. This is my life. My journey. I would rather not cry silently any longer or drown anxieties and sadness with other negative things. I have found courage and strength. My faith has been tested. I am regaining my positivity. I am still here. Still standing tall. Stronger and bolder than I have ever been. I know I am blessed. I know I will thrive.
For all those who struggled this year, I pray that 2018 brings brighter days. May you find strength, joy and peace that is long-lasting. Amen πŸ™πŸΎβœ¨
I have grown and learned a lot in 2017 and I look forward with courage, hope and faith to all that 2018 will bring β˜ΊοΈβœ¨πŸ’“πŸŒΈβœ¨
