It amazes me to look back on the changes I have seen over the past year.
The people who have come in and out of my life.
The challenges I have taken on.
The risks I have taken.
When there is change, we often reflect back on our choices. Did we make the right decisions, did we say ‘yes’ at the right times, did we walk away when we should have?
I believe we make these choices because of what was ‘meant to be’. We make the choices in our life to take risks, test the unknown, fall in love, and make life altering choices for a reason.
When we take the time to reflect we must remember that we are taking a path that is meant for us and it is important to be proud of this.
Taking risks and going after what we want is what life is truly about. I did this on many occasions this past year and I learned so much because of it. When things did not go exactly as planned, it was because there was something better waiting. By going after that something better it resulted in amazing things for me.
My career has taken a new direction.
My love to explore and travel is starting to become a reality.
My connections to those that can influence my life in nothing but a positive manner are starting to evolve.
But most of all, I am proud of the person I am becoming. Not because I am becoming the person those around me want to be. But because I am becoming the person I know I can be by surrounding myself with all the things I need to help me get there.
Change is not always easy. But life is not always easy either and we need to grow from each experience and choose the life we deserve.
When I reflect back on this past year, there were a lot of hardships. Each one of these hardships has led me to an even better and brighter future.
to always embracing change.
