A year full of many highs but also many lows. The highs leaving me feeling exhilarated & flying on cloud 9. The lows leaving me feeling stressed & uncomfortable.
Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a downer post though! I’m not telling you this for pity & I’m definitely not going to give you a play by play of the last year because that would take far too long. I’m simply telling you this because I feel the desperate need to be honest with you all. 2017 was a HARD year for me.
I told you guys that 2017 was going to be a time where I opened up & got more personal. Unfortunately, instead, this past year was full of experiences that made me want to disappear & hide from the online community. Which in turn led to many weeks where I didn’t want to post at all. The struggle between wanting to share my life & be personal, while still keeping my life just that, “personal”, can be tough but I’m determined to find a balance.
All in all, 2017 was a year full of learning experiences & figuring out who I am now as I’m getting older. I love that the harder moments made me realize certain things about myself & helped me grow so much as an individual & mother. I’m so thankful that I have such a supportive & wonderful husband & I love how much closer I have grown with my little family over the past year!
I’m starting 2018 completely different than I have started any other year & I am beyond thrilled for this fresh start! Stay tuned for a couple of posts on how I’m making this year different & how I’m going to make intentions instead of resolutions!
