End of the year

December 29, 2017

End of the year is here! Can you believe that in 3 days we will enter into a whole new year 2018? I have no idea how did the end of this year approached so quickly, it feels like last 4 months are a blur. Am I the only one who feels this way? Did the end of the year caught you by a surprise too?

It always happens that those few days right after Christmas and before New Year’s Eve are especially emotional for me. It’s as if when I slow down to celebrate Christmas, don’t have to go back to work for a little while and break my daily routine I actually do get to slow down and “hear” my own thoughts better. That’s when I start thinking about the year behind and how well I’ve “spent it”. Moments of reflections have never been easy for me as I’m overly sensitive and emotional person so whatever there is I feel it strongly.

I feel that this year was definitely a year of transformation, mentally more than anything else. I have grown away from some people, things and behaviours which didn’t suit me well but I have been stupidly holding onto for so long. I have celebrated my 30th birthday and yes, it’s true, whatever the trick is, you DO change a lot as a person in your final moments of 20s in a way that confidence as well as your “inner voice of sense” are much better and sharper than ever before.

I know that I still have so much to learn, change and believe my gut more often but the cathartic change has started and I’m so happy to enter 2018 feeling very confident about the future in every way.

End of the year reflecting did bring a whole new set of questions which have been bouncing in my head and I don’t think that I have the answers to all of them but that’s why the new 365 days are ahead, to unlock the answers and try to write the best story possible for 2018!

Yes, I did go through emotions of feeling down and thinking that 2017 didn’t bring me that much further in my career or that I wasn’t the best mom or that I didn’t took well care of my health or that I have trusted one too many people but I don’t want to end the year on a bitter end. When you truly think about it… We are here! We are alive and we have a chance to steer our lives and futures in the ways we want to! Some people have deceased in this year and they don’t have the luxury of writing the next chapter of the “life book” but YOU do, so no matter what, get your warrior spirits up and fight your way through 2018 making it the best year of your life yet! 😀
