Happy New Years everyone! I can’t believe we are only hours away from 2018. The year went by so fast, and I am grateful for all of the opportunities 2017 brought me. 2017 I began new internships and jobs while finishing off my second year of college and entering my third and final year. 2017 was also a year of loss. I lost my grandmother who passed in February. She passed only 4 months after my stepfather, making the past two years quite difficult. However, I have been coping and have been focusing greatly on my mental health. I am working on remaining positive and grateful, and really do feel so lucky to be alive. I started keeping a gratitude journal this year and journaling at least once a week which has really helped me remain positive and more in touch with my mind. I have also been healthier. I go to the gym five times a week, and although I do not see many changes with my body, I’m proud of my dedication and really do feel so much better.
This year has really made me begin thinking about the future, and what I want to do with my life. Even more specifically, what I want to do with this blog. I was thinking about putting a little bit more into this blog. As in, maybe buying a domain and creating a specific theme or topic. The reason I haven’t so far is because I’m not quite sure what I’d want that theme to be. I guess that’s something to be decided in 2018.
While I do not have any New Years resolutions, I do have goals for the future. First, a simple goal I have is that I’d like to start taking more pictures. I don’t take enough, and I would like some pictures to look back on here and there. Another goal I have is to travel more. I don’t travel at all, so even traveling to just one place this year would make a difference and give me something exciting to look back on. I want to continue to exercise and become in even better shape than I am now. I want to eat healthier and continue my mental health journey and continue to grow. I’m graduating college in a few short months and I’m ready to be independent. My goal is to find a good job and a nice home to live in, and overall just to be happy.
Happy New Years everyone! Hope 2018 is a good one!
