2018: A Year in Review

2018. Too many things left unsaid. I have no regrets.
If anything, I wish to have been more decisive early on in the year. But in the end,

I still did make major decisions this year.

I’ve also decided to listen to what I needed the most, and that is to move forward, no matter the cost. And it did cost me greatly. Still, no regrets.

I am not sure if the good things can outweigh the bad ones that happened this year, but I offer my deepest gratitude to God for still letting me pull through, through it all.

I can go on with the bad things that have happened, but I choose to talk about my joys and the things I am proud to have done and experienced in 2018.

I know there are more things that should be here, but they escaped my memory.

I am thankful for everything about 2018.

For 2019, my prayer is to grow more in my faith, create more intentionally, relearn to be vulnerable, resonate with others more, be kinder, forgiving, and to look back less often.
