No shocker here that 2017 was the year I launched this site. It was something I’d always wanted to do, so I decided to take the plunge. And let me tell you, I’m so glad I did.
My very first post was titled The Power of Putting Your Happiness Above All Else. If you remember this post from way back when, I thank you for sticking with me through this journey. If you don’t remember, need a refresher, or have never in your life seen this post, all you have to do is simply click the link to check it out!
Looking back, I feel like this was somewhat of a super ballsy post to write to kick start this blog. But, it was full of things I knew had to be said. Most of the words included in this post are ones that had been sitting inside of me for quite some time so, honestly, they exploded out of me all at once, and came to fight.
I now love that this post was my very first because I am looking back at it with an entirely new perspective. Things have changed so much in such a short year and I have moved ahead by leaps and bounds from where I was those short days ago. If you would have told me that my life would be [somewhat] completely different at this exact second than they were at this time last year, I would not believe you. I would not believe that I would accomplish so much in a short amount of time. I would not believe the experiences that I would have during this timeframe. I would not believe that the girl I thought was the best version of myself all those days ago, turned out even better, and even happier than she was 365 days past.
With that being said, I encourage everyone to keep pushing forward. To not only get back up if you’ve fallen down, but to get back up throwing punches. A lot can happen in a year, live it to your fullest potential. I promise you won’t regret it. xoxo.
