Goodbye 2018

I remember New Year’s Eve last year as if it was yesterday. I was filled to the brim with anticipation, knowing in my gut, that the next year would be a huge year for me. I rarely cry, but that night I did. Maybe my spirit knew the journey I was embarking on and warning me to tighten up.

And, yes, it certainly has been one heck of a ride. I have grown so much this year, both professionally and personally. Not only have I made more money from writing than I ever have, humble brag, but I moved twice this year, to two different states!

There were some low moments this year that really tested my faith, but overcoming them has reconfirmed Whose I am.

In summation, 2018, you have been an experience. Some moments I enjoyed more than others. But looking back, I recognize that all those momentsl led me to where I am now.

Thank you.

Let’s go 2019.

A good friend of mine shared an encouraging quote with me.

“No matter how tall the mountain, it cannot block the sun.” -Chinese proverb

Even though it hurts sometimes, and it seems impossible, don’t lose faith. Stay in the race, and eventually you’ll find your second wind.
