”The best view comes after the hardest climb.”
Every day you should learn something new. Every year you should grow. I’ve never considered New Years Eve like a time to start over, however, this year I see it as the most perfect day to leave everything that do not serve me behind, and believe that everything do happen for a reason. It’s not what happens to us that defines us, it’s our response to what happens. And response is something we can choose.
Everything I’ve been through has made me who I am
2017 has been one of the toughest years ever, nevertheless, I feel I’ve grown tremendously. 2017 was the year I became more aware. I’ve learned to become more mindful, more present. And most importantly, I understand that I can always trust my intuition. I can trust myself, and all I’m capable of. I know I’m unique – we all are. I know I was meant to inspire other humans, I might not know exactly how, but I know that everything will eventually fall into place. It’s through hardship you learn to appreciate life, it’s how you get to know thyself.
I’ve learned a lot about myself this year. I’ve learned how important it is to be grateful. I’ve learned how important is is to show kindness. To forgive. And to forget. I’ve learned to be true to myself, express my emotions and not be afraid to be. To be me.
I know that success is something we all have inside of us. We just have to dig deep, learn to love ourselves, the good and the bad.
I’ve struggled with low self-esteem, compared myself with others. Been listening to my negative thoughts, over and over again. When I woke up this morning I had this strange feeling. I felt at peace. It felt like all the negativity had left my body over night. I felt reborn. I now know I’m perfect, just as I am. I don’t have to be anyone else. I’m perfect – we all are.
I know I want to encourage people to believe in themselves. I want to be able to inspire everyone to dare to dream big. To never lose hope. We’re all perfectly imperfect humans. We all make mistakes, we live and we learn. It’s life, and it’s beautiful, not only when it’s flawless.
I’m grateful for you 2017, although you put me to the test. You thought me how to be a strong human. You made me understand that I’m capable of achieving anything.
I know I’m exactly where I need to be, here, surrounded by love ❤
