I’m just going to apologize in advance since I haven’t posted in MONTHS.
2017 was pretty brutal for me but it also had some very rewarding moments. The end of 2016, I found out I was pregnant with my favorite little person and from there all hell broke loose. February, I lost one of the closest friends I had which led to months of emotional turmoil. Of course, this meant that I started to lose my focus… something I couldn’t afford to do with a baby coming in 6 months.
After taking time to heal instead of thinking of all the “what if’s,” I found an El Paso church home. I didn’t know where to start or how to rekindle my relationship with my spirituality & one Sunday a sermon hit me like a sack of bricks. My time had come. Ever since then, I’ve attended church faithfully.
I’ve learned that you can’t always please everyone else. There’s going to come a time at one point or another when you’re gonna have to think about and put yourself first. I honestly couldn’t be happier that I started thinking more about me and a little less about everyone else. It’s helped me realize more about myself and how to love me some me.
My 2018 isn’t going to be about these cliche New Years resolutions where I set these unrealistic goals… it’s going to be about learning. Healing. Growth. And overcoming the things I once thought were impossible. This is year is going to be my year. It’s going to be about me and the people I care about for once. I’m done making excuses.
So here’s to the first day of 2018. The first day of a fresh slate with no baggage. The first day of my new year.
Happy New Year everyone!
