reflection

It’s that time of year again, 2018 is coming to an end and we are starting to make resolutions and setting goals for next year. This year blessed me in many incredible ways.

One of my major accomplishments this year was getting to live in Downtown Los Angeles. I absolutely loved every second of it and I think back to all of the friends and people I met and I am forever grateful. You can read more about it in my blog post that I wrote once it ended. It definitely was one of the things I have wanted to do and I’m so happy that I didn’t pass up the opportunity.

Due to the internship, I got the motivation and the tools to start my blog. This was something that I have been wanting to do for the longest time. To have space for myself and be able to talk about whatever it is that I wanted.

It’s interesting when you take the time to look back on what you have accomplished throughout the year. I got my license, finally, it was long overdue. I traveled a little bit more than past years. Also, I bought a car. It was a year filled with many adulting decisions but, I don’t think I would’ve wanted it any other way.

Although there were many good moments,

The start of 2018 was not the best. I honestly had no clue about what direction to take my life or if I even wanted to continue trying to find my passion. I had many moments where I doubted I was actually really good at anything. Fear and doubt were the main reason I had not decided to work on this blog. Without doubt and fears, there would have been no growth.

Looking back, I am grateful that reaching that point made me want to work harder. Thanks to the support of my wonderful boyfriend and the amazing friends that I met this summer, it only helped to validate what I already wanted to do.

Going into next year:

I am looking forward to many more accomplishments. Hopefully, I will continue to write, more frequently than now. One of my biggest goals at the moment is to start my own freelancing editing site. I think that aside from running this blog part time, it would also be great to work doing something that I love.

Hopefully, I will be able to bring you weekly content that would allow me to grow as a writer, and bond with you, the reader. We all have the same struggles, so thank you 2018 for allowing me to see the light at the end of the tunnel!

What was your favorite moment of 2018? Anything you would change from this past year?
