Any given year can either be an equal mix of good and bad, or can tip the scales drastically to one side or the other. For me, 2017 was a hard year... 365 days of good, bad, and ugly.
Although it was filled with beautiful sunsets, cleansing runs, challenging hikes, and renewing escapes; it was also filled with bitter disappointments and devastating heartbreaks. A year of clarity and conviction, sadness and separation, and trials, tribulations, and truths not welcomed nor expected.
A year full of lessons and revelations that would not have come to pass without the hardships that preceded them - making it a year that was also a surprising gift. Through it, ⚓️hope endured, happiness was found, and gratitude was mindfully cultivated.
2018 is now here, and in this new year, I believe strength and courage will guide me... I expect truths and trials will continue to challenge me... and I know stories and storytelling will inevitably soothe me. Sharing, writing and creating will, as always, save me, and love will most definitely keep it all together.
