Reflecting on 2018

2018 taught me sometimes you need to go backwards to go forward.

I like to spend the new year reflecting back on the year. The ups and downs. Everything I’m grateful for. You don’t need a new year to start over. But it’s symbolic and allows for a collective change. 
Things I learned in 2018.

  • How to let go. Someone wise shared with me the saying “Trust and the net will catch you”, which helped me make a choice in a difficult time.

  • Let life surpris you- I never knew I would end my year in Paris. But sometimes life has a different plan for you that’s better than you could have imagined.

  • That friends can be angels in your life.

  • That a location can teach you so much- moving to LA I have met so many people that share my same passions and have opened my mind up to greater things. So happy for everything I have learned and excited for what the new year will bring.

  • Everything this year hasn’t been easy. Things moved slower than I had hoped many times. It can be hard as a planner and a go getter. But it allowed me to go back and learn some lessons I still needed to learn, and reflect on things I needed.

2018 taught me that sometimes you have to go backwards to move forward. What lesson are you grateful for that 2018 taught you?
