2017 was stressful, happy, frustrating, fulfilling, difficult, memorable… I don’t think I can find enough words to summarize my year. The past few years, I felt like I was stuck in a rut. That changed in 2017. So many things happened. It was fun, but it was also challenging. And I feel as if 2018 is going to be the same, but just more of everything. I’m feeling excited, scared, nervous, happy, anxious and a mix of everything else. When I think about what’s to come, I can’t help but feel overwhelmed and somewhat incapable. However, I hated being in a rut and would rather feel nervous and overwhelmed than bored and unproductive.
When I think of 2018, I feel a bit scared. It feels like a new chapter of my life is beginning, what with marriage and everything that comes with it drawing closer as each day passes. But I guess this is what comes with growth, and I should embrace it. Growth is good.
So, hello, 2018. Be gentle, but don’t be boring.
