Farewell 2017

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.
