- thank you, next. I appreciate all of the trials and growth that have taken me this far. I’ve done nothing but fed my mind and spirit with positivity, and made sure to surround myself with people who only want to go higher. One of the most important attributes I’ve gained is patience. I knew that with hard work and self motivation I could create more streams of income from my blog, and I did. At the very tail end of 2018, (this month to be exact) I signed my biggest contract yet! And it has a comma. Yeah, I’m here to brag right now because I busted my butt for it and it wasn’t easy. All the times I doubted myself, my FAITH outweighed it ALL. Just so you know, you can do the same. Don’t give up on your passions and dreams because others might not understand what you are doing. Dismiss yourself from the small minded, but don’t forget to pray for them. In 2019, leave behind your fears. Tackle your goals. And don’t wait for anyone to hand you anything. Let’s go get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #Hello2019

You were a roller coaster ride and an amazing experience. And I have a letter for you on ShopaholicSharika...
--------------------------------------------- You taught me to work hard, to have ambition, to inspire others to think about what lies ahead of them... yet at the same time, you told me to relax, breathe, and stay in the moment for as long as it blesses you. A proper balance of productivity and self check-ups can take an individual beyond what they thought they were capable of. As high school slowly approaches in my 2019, I can only hope for success along with the mistakes that come from learning.
You taught me that friends will be there for you... but sometimes they won't. Remember that although there are many problems you have to face on your own, there are infinitely more that you do NOT have to deal with on your little self. Friends can be there when you need them.
You taught me that all families are dysfunctional at times, but they are your family. There things your family could not understand, and never will. But even so, they will support you through the things that don't make sense. They will show you that struggles are temporary, but family is forever.
Lastly, you taught me it's okay to not know what to do. It's okay to not know where you're going, where you'll be, what you want to do, or when you'll start making a difference. You showed me that things are going to hurt for as long as I live. That opinions can only drag you down if you let them. That truly, the only thing you need to go far,
is to believe that you really CAN walk that distance.

Dear 2 0 1 8,
I write to tell you that I am grateful for meeting you.
You will go down in history as the year of transformation and growth.
The year I chose to follow my heart and intuition. The year I created new routines and healthy habits for myself. Established a whole new lifestyle - which has changed my life for the better in so many ways.
You’ve been a rollercoaster full of highs and lows. I honor this. Thank you for bringing everything I needed. From beautiful people to deep challenges. They all guided me in the right direction on this health journey of mine.
When I stopped being so hard on myself and gave myself permission to just be me I achieved a lot. Look how far I came in a year - there’s been a whole lotta growth.
2018, you are one of a kind. And we turned out to be one hell of a team. Now I’m ready to let be and let go, to move on. I am so excited for what 2019 has in store for me.
I can promise you one thing:
I’ll keep expanding - towards more freedom!
Love Kristin 💫💕🙏🏼

A Letter To The Bullshit, Hurt and Trauma I Experienced In 2018. When I’m Finished, I’m Burning It. Let It Be A Metaphor Of Setting Fire To Those Demons And Starting Anew. I Came Up With It Last Minute. Hopefully, It Works🤞🏽🖤 If You Do It, Tag Me! Let’s Cleanse.
Всё ещё непонятно,как это уже новый год начался ✨
thanks for all the lessons #dear2019
Dear 2018 Kylie
2018 was great to you. You were able to experience some really awesome things. You got closer to your hubby and really fell into the awesomeness that is marriage. You also became a major (and I mean major) dog mom, which you swore you’d never do, yet here you are loving Hagrid as much as humanly possible. Along with changing your view on dogs you became more inquisitive. Thank you. Seriously. You learned so much in 2018. You also decided to take a chance on yourself. 2018 was the year you started (and failed) marketing for It Works. It was a great choice and I’m glad you took the leap, but it wasn’t the right company. At the start of fall another opportunity to work for yourself came up. And you were so brave! You said yes! You didn’t let your past failures get in your way. Go you! So you dove into Arbonne and while it didn’t take off quite like you hoped, you decided to stick with it because it was the right company. Seriously girlfriend you were awesome in 2018 and I’m so stinking excited to tell you that 2019 is going to be even more full of of the positives! You’re gonna travel, you’re gonna kick butt in Arbonne, and you’re gonna finally love yourself for who you are. 🥰
Hello 2019 👋🏻 #hello2019 #dear2018 #selflove #arbonne #arbonnebabe #arbonnelifer

I used to believe that I wasn't capable of certain things, like being on a tight, steady schedule. (The 9-5 life always scared me). I used to think that I wouldn't be able to work multiple jobs while still nurturing and honing my creativity.
I used to think that I would forever be a victim to my own thoughts, doubts and fears; never fully living free of the restrictions I had drawn around myself.
I used to believe that I would always stay the same in specific areas of my life; my work ethic, my ability to love someone and be loved, my desire to be more than I am. I believed these were some of the constants in my life that I had no real control over, that these elements were merely imbedded within me from birth - not capable of altering or shifting.
This year has brought a growth among the greens. My inner garden has flourished in hues of gold, lavender, blush, and rose. What was once seeds under soil is now fresh life in bloom. I have learned that I am both the seed and the gardener; my own flourishing is at the beckoning of my will.
I always knew the power of my thoughts and their ability to move mountains or simply add light to my day. I knew that I can create what I want in my life by believing in my ability to do so, but even though I knew of the magic that dwells within me, I often forgot of its potential and wouldn't wave my wand.
This year I remembered it's latent powers and put alchemy into my mornings, afternoons, and evenings - sometimes allowing it to drift into my dreams while at sleep.
The straps that I tied my arms and legs in when I decided that I would never trust again have been unbound and I decided by own will that I will no longer tell the story of a girl who's been betrayed, but of a woman who has grown from her pain.
I will take chances on love, I will trust in myself, all will be healed and renewed with the change of the seasons. I believe things are only going to get better from here and by my own belief, I am already carving out the path I walk upon.

📝Dear my 2018,
ชีวิตเรื่อยเปื่อย จุดหมายต่างๆ หายไป
แต่เรายังยึดคติเดิมว่า ' เวลาทุกคนมีเท่ากัน ขึ้นกับเราจัดการ และให้ความสำคัญกับอะไร '
ที่เปลี่ยนแปลงไปจาก ปสก. ปีก่อนๆ
แต่ท้ายปีได้ช่วยงานกิจกรรมดีๆ เล็กๆ น้อยๆ
เลยเพิ่งได้เห็นว่าสิ่งที่มีมันเอามาปรับใช้ได้จริงอยู่เหมือนกัน แม้ว่าผลตอบรับมันอาจจะไม่ได้ 100%
มิชชั่นคอมพลีทไปแล้วบางอันใน bucket list
แต่ยังเหลืออีกหลายๆ ที่ที่อยากไป ที่อยากทำ
(หรือยังคงขี้เกียจทำอยู่ 😭) จะพยายามไม่ทำอะไรบ้าๆ บอๆ หรือทำให้น้อยลง 55
แต่วันสิ้นปีเราได้ใช้เวลาอย่างเรื่อยเปื่อยมากมาย เช่นการนั่งรถไปกลับ 5 ชม. แบบแทบไม่ได้อะไรเลย 55
และแม้กระทั่งตอนนี้ ที่ต้องมานั่งโง่ๆ ที่สนามบินคุนหมิง

Vibrando por um 2019 ainda melhor! 🙏🏾🌅🌊 #Dear2018
Where do I even begin? I thought you were THAT year. You gave me a broken heart. A confused career path. You gave me a disorder that shook me to my core. You took away my chance to be either of the only two real dreams I had.
I thought you were the year that would knock me out and render me motionless and lifeless.
That's what I thought, anyway.
Plot twist after plot twist, you gave and you gave, and I have never seen life as lovely as I do now. I have never been as brave as I am now.
Instead of knocking me down, you swept me off of my feet.
I thought I would hate you, 2018, but I have come to love you and be thankful for you.
I have much yet to learn, but you are proof that the best is yet to come.
Now, 2019, let's see what you've got. --- "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." - Lamentations 3:22-23
Пока я тут по Риму гуляю, все уже итоги года написали, оливье съели и шампанским запили. ⠀
Не знаю, законно ли писать итоги года 2 января, а не 31 декабря, но я рискну 😄
Коротко о главном:
✅ Желание загаданное в новогоднюю ночь с 2017 на 2018й сбылось!
✅Очень продуктивный и весьма необычный был год в плане работы. Опыт получен, выводы сделаны. Жаль, что некоторые мыслят по правилам "кто не с нами, тот против нас", но радует, что адекватные люди в моем окружении были, есть и будут!
Благо, что ненужное само по себе отсеялось, а нужное пришло. ⠀
✅Мы наконец-то доделали ремонт и в последние деньки декабря перевезли вещи на новую квартиру. 🏠 Это большое событие. Даже не верится, что все "скитания" позади))
✅ Очень люблю путешествия и пусть их в 2018 году было не так много, как хотелось бы, каждое было прекрасным. ⠀
✅В ушедшем году закончилась моя глобальная стоматологическая проблема, к решению которой я планировала подойти последние лет 7. Миллион поездок в клинику в Калугу и вуаля - теперь наконец-то красивые и здоровые зубки 🐱 совет: не откладывайте на потом своё здоровье)) ⠀
✅Ещё в 2018 году у меня появился спорт. По-тихонечку, не так результативно, как могло быть, в перемешку с ленью/занятостью/нежеланием, но он появился и это радует! ⠀
✅И много ещё всего хорошего случилось, что останется вне инстаграмного мира. Спасибо всем, кто был и остаётся рядом! Очень ценю. Желаю каждому любви, семейного счастья, достойной работы, которая приносит кайф, и сил для исполнения своих мечтаний! И самое важное - не лениться! (ибо подкова приносит счастье только когда прибиваешь её к своим копытам и идёшь пахать! 😋) ⠀
Уверена, что 2019й год будет ещё "быстрее. выше. сильнее. "!!!
P. S. Вообще 2018й был мой год - собаки 🐶 и он был 💣💥
Dear 2018, Thank you for teaching me that I’m the creative director of my life. Thank you for teaching me about self awareness. Thank you for teaching me about being present. Thank you for teaching me the power of my thoughts. Thank you for all the connections I made, and all the opportunities that came my way! Thank you, next. I’m ready for 2019!
What did 2018 teach you?!
Thanks Semua Untuk Moment 2018 kmarin
Smoga Di 2019 ini Kita Semua Bisa Jadi Lebih Baik Lagi. without you I can't live alone,because there are you I can live.
Saya Meneruskan Dari Whatsaap #dear2018
I will look back on you with a smile despite the many hard days I endured. I will choose to remember the new friends I made, the growth I accomplished, and the many lessons I learned. During my time with you, I started my business, I worked on some incredible events, I learned who I am, and most importantly I learned to love myself. You brought me challenges I never knew I could overcome and with that I learned invaluable lessons.
Today is the first day of 2019 and I’m choosing to remember all the good you brought me. I will look back on you with a smile; but, I don’t want to ever revisit you because despite those lessons you were hard, really hard. I battled depression, I cried, I had anxiety attacks, and I faced fears. I thank you for giving me the space to grow but, I know 2019 is going to be so much better than you ever were.
With love + trust,
PS- thank you, next.

I want to start by thanking you for Gabriella and Ava. They have been an absolute blessing, even in the darkest of days you gave me my girls to shine the light. I have witnessed them grow into the most beautiful girls both inside and out. Even at their young ages, they are already strong-minded little females ready to change the world.
You didn't make the year easy; in fact, last year has held some of the most challenging moments I've ever had to overcome. But guess what 2018? I did it!
You tested me in ways I never could have imagined but also gave me the strength to get through it all.
When I had given up hope, you blessed me with the most amazing friends, who saw in me what I was unable to see and helped me rise again.
I'm leaving you behind, still trying to put back the pieces that you broke from me. However, I'm also leaving you behind stronger, more resilient, with a new outlook on life.
So 2018, I'd like to say thank you and f*** you.
Here's to 2019 😘🍾❤
2018, thank you for...
Bringing me back to what brings me the most passion and joy, my writing.
Showing me that “the hustle” can be done and that if you want something bad enough, you have to make the time for it, even when you already have a million things going on.
Deepening my connection with others and offering countless experiences for me to love harder, judge less, forgive more, and let go of what is no longer serving me.
Showing me how much love, appreciation and blessings can come from commitment.
Revealing to me yet another layer of myself; for allowing me to meet new people, try different things, shed some of the old while carving out space for what’s ahead. For this process of always stretching and moving forward.
And a BIG thanks to my readers and supporters who have followed me on my writing journey and who always lift me up with their emails, messages, comments, and love.
I appreciate you all so much and I thank you with my whole heart for reading my stories, my thoughts on life and my dreams for both myself and you.
I always love the beginning of another new year. It’s a blank page, another story to tell, a new chapter to write, and endless possibilities to revel in.
I hope this year brings you closer to your dreams, your heart and what matters most to you. I send so much love, gratitude and blessings your way.
Happy New Year! I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings 🖤
You were so good to us! We saw Jesus do amazing things in our lives from growing our faith, serving at church, receiving promotions, starting college, watching our babies grow, learning how to navigate marriage, amazing friendships and so much more. I was able to end and begin a new year with my very best friend. 2019 has so much in store for our family and we cannot wait to get going! #HeresTo2019
thank you for the bad and good memories.I can say that 2018 was OK?! It wasn’t good but neither bad...But thanks to you I started to understand what I couldn’t understand before & thanks to you I had the opportunity to experience and realize more things. You were the most INTERESTING year!
Spunky new vid is up (link in my bio) 🌤 it’s a fun little reflection/look back through 2018 as I read a letter I wrote to the year that’s gone by ✨ please check it out!
Al preparar las uvas ha habido algunos nuevos.
Y, por suerte, nadie a quien echar de menos.
Yo solo pido que el 2019 lo acabemos exactamente igual que ahora. Juntos. Son bienvenidos los nuevos, pero ni uno menos
Imposible empezar año mejor acompañada
#newyear #happynewyear #dear2018 #teriayabar #love #together
Thank you for everything
Memberi saya banyak pelajaran, semakin memahami bhwa muka bumi ini tidak hanya dihuni oleh saya sendiri. Bahwa sikap kita sendiri pun bisa jadi bumerang malapetaka bagi kita ketika kita tidak bisa memilih menjadi pribadi yg bijak. .
Terimakasih banyak mengembalikan yg hilang, bahkan mengganti dengan yg lebih baik. .
Dipertemukan, dididik dengan orang2 baru, yg mengajarkan banyak hal yg belum saya ketahui. Dididik di asrama (mayoritas isinya anak pesant**n) yg sudah terbiasa dgn kehidupan agama, sdgkan saya yg hnya dari siswa SMA yg blm memahami lebih dlm mengenai agama dan diajarkan kpd sy. bahkan mereka tanpa lelah walaupun saya bosan..
Terima kasih kepada teman2 dekat saya yg sudah menerima, menasihati, tanpa kalian jauh dari orangtua akan terasa semakin sulit,entah kemana larinya otak saya tanpa kalian di samping saya ketika mata, jari, otak harus berputar secara bersama.
Stand by with me @annisa_12m @drhmniyah_ @widyasapira_ @_wisma
(kita anak2 rantau yg ga pernah lelah berjuang di kota orang wkwk)❤
Now that you're safely gone I can say that I won't fucking miss you at all. You're like the evil sibling of 2016, that other death year. Sure, you inspired some good poetry, but this year I'd love to write more words sprung from joy, not from sadness, grief, illness, panic, worry and pain.
OK, I just had to get that off my scrawny, phlegm-congested chest. I hope 2019 treats us better. Now I'm going to go drink some herbal tea, then try to lie down and breathe at the same time.
I swear, 2018, you took years off my life and added plenty of gray hairs. I hope to forget you.

, I've reached the end of your year and there are so many questions that I need to ask you. Sometimes I am afraid of what you might tell me. Sometimes I am afraid this is a work of fiction. I can only hope that the answers will come to me in my sleep. I hope that when the year comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to.

My letter to 2018 is now posted on isabellesfight.com (link in my bio), thank you all for being a part of this year. This was a year that was near impossible to summarize with words ❤️
“Dear 2018... Oh where do I even begin? You brought more than anyone could have ever imagined... you brought storms of Herculean strength- volatile and treacherous. You brought the most beautiful moments of clarity and peace. You brought moments of agony and pain. You brought moments of pure heaven on earth. You brought it all- and you showed me how to fight as hard as I possibly could” #2018 #2019 #dear2018 #newyear #isabellesfight #thepeacewithinthefight #365days #living #thankyou #ourmiracle
I'm so glad to roundup my vision about 2018 as a kind of poetry. #dear2018
Kindly give the honest reviews regarding this humble creation..
I had that kind of love and hate relationship with you. I got so many exciting opportunity but i also lost someone meaningful in my life. You thought me so many things. You disappointed me at the beginning of the year, you gave me a new great hope in the middle of the year, and you really broke me to pieces in the end of the year. It’s ok. I learned so many things from you. I experienced many new things even i didn’t travel as much as before. I also got some new point of view. Thank you, next.
The tree’s turned off. The gifts are all done. And I’ve just journaled my last entry for 2018. #dear2018
for all you were, and all you were not... for everything you brought and everything you held back... for the deepest deeps to the highest highs and for every little thing done and left undone... I #bidyouadieu
. It’s meaning is not goodbye; but rather, I commend you to God. ..
And I do. Dear 2018, what’s left of you is in The Makers hands, and to what I need to let go, I let go... and to what He still has plans to use, I also let go... #adieu
- you are His. ...
, I see you. I’m coming for you. And to you , 2019, I give you to God too. #letsdothis #happynewyear
PTW/TW!!- Dear 2018, what a wild time you have been. A time of happy and a time of sad. At time of proudness, laughter, sadness and anger. You showed me pain and strength and what it can do to a person. You challenged me, you gave me a run for my money. In the first 4 pictures I was happy, maybe not always comfortable, or hell maybe in the being of ed, but happy. In the last 6 pictures I was so sad, I was crying and/or screaming every day. In the last 5 pictures I was eating less than 1000 calories a day, and in some off them less than 500 calories. I wanted to die, simply disappear. I didn’t even know if I would make it to 2019, let alone want to. I was to busy on calories, a weight, and when was the next time I’m gonna eat, and what I’m going to eat, looking up pictures and recipes of food I would never eat. I would lie, fake and come up with excuses not to eat or to eat to much (or at least to me.) I would pretend to be upset when I lost weight and be confused, on the inside I would celebrate and know exactly why I lost. But more importantly I was miserable, I couldn’t focus, I couldn’t laugh 80% of the time, I couldn’t enjoy the surprise party I had for my best friend, i couldn’t enjoy Christmas, my birthday, or thanksgiving. I couldn’t spend time with my family,I cant remember my darkest months. I don’t remember a lot, but I do know this. I couldn’t LIVE. But now I can, now I will. You 2018, were a hell of a year. As your final hour or so beings I want to say thank you. Thank you for taking a girl with small amounts of great quality’s-taking them away- and making them larger. Thank you for breaking me down to make me stronger. That was not your intention, to break me down nor make me stronger. But I say thank you. But this coming year I have permission to live and enjoy life, I have permission to just BE. 2018 got me, but I’ve got 2019~Sophia. #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorder #ed #edrecovery #recovery #edfighter #edstrong #strong #fighter #eatittobeatit #myfight #2018 #myrecovery #igotthis #2019 #dear2018 #mytopnine2018 #thankyou #edwarrior #eatingdisorderwarrior #newyear #newyearsnourish
Looking into the new year like... 😏🤙🏻 Dear 2018,
What a year you have been. So many ups and downs. I've survived my studies, graduated, fell in love, tried new things, improved some skills, stepped out of my comfort zone, gone through heartbreak, felt lonely, tried being more honest, tried being more vulnerable... You consisted of 365 days. Some of which were good and others not so good. Do you remember what I challenged myself to do this year...? Talk less, listen more.
I'm in no way proud of saying this, but I did not do as well as I thought I would. I am sorry. I will however keep trying.
With everything happening around us. I believe it is a time to listen to others. Hear what they have to say. Understand what they are telling you. Do not be disrespectful. Be kind. If you don't agree. Wait. Listen and then talk. I cannot urge this enough - be kind.
Be kind friends.
So 2018, this is my goodbye. You have been quite a journey. Do not take any offense, but 2019 shall be better than you.
2018 had me take a good lonnnng hard look at myself in the mirror, I’ve run away I’ve stayed , I’ve gained I’ve lost, I have cried from joy and sadness and have learned a lot this year. I hope to bring with me in the future the lessons I have learned and carry it on to those who need it. I’ve gained a family and lost friends. Dear 2018, good bye thank you for everything the good and the bad but no matter what I’m still going to be looking forward to the future and looking back on the past. -Kiara ❤️ #dear2018
You came... And you welcomed me with open arms...
I walked right into you- unafraid, motivated, fired up, excited, encouraged, strong...
And then you threw me some unexpected curveballs... including death.
Yet throughout the entire time I stood firm...
Not in my own strength but in the strength of the Lord.
His joy made me strong... His song made me dance... His word kept me grounded...
And even though there were some tears, some heartache, some pain, some disappointments, some set backs...
There was also many laughter, many victories, many miracles, many celebrations and many blessings... and I’m so grateful for all the lessons you taught me.
And as I bow out gracefully... I’m reminded that no matter what year it was, is or will be, God will always ride with me and He’ll always ride for me... And for that my joy is uncontainable.
So Goodbye 2018... Hello future 🥰🥰🥰

Ma très chère année 2018,
Tu t’en vas ce soir en emportant les bons et les mauvais moments que tu nous as donné cette année. Je garde de toi un peu plus de force pour aller un peu plus loin dans la réalisation de mes rêves, de mes projets. Tu emportes avec toi des décès, des succès, des joies, des peines, des réussites et des échecs. Quoi qu’il arrive, j’amorce cette nouvelle année en me connaissant un peu plus et en ayant un bagage un peu plus conséquent pour affronter ce que 2019 mettra sur ma route. Tu m’as appris ce dernier mois à réaliser la chance que j’ai d’être en vie, en bonne santé, d’avoir des proches qui le sont également. Alors je choisis de changer mon fusil d’épaule et de prendre la vie autrement. À tort ou à raison, je compte bien faire mes résolutions 2019 pour avoir une ligne de conduite qui guidera ma route. Je choisis de prendre soin de moi et pour cela de me battre encore plus fort pour perdre ces kilos qui me font du mal. Je choisis de vivre heureuse, de m’épanouir et de m’ouvrir au monde. Je choisis de vivre plus simplement, de me cultiver autrement, et de chérir le monde qui m’entoure. Je choisis de lire plus de livres et d’éteindre plus souvent ma télé. Je décide de vivre autrement, mieux, plus sainement.
Je suis prête.
Prêt? Feu? Partez!

New Year's challenge!
The goal of this is to both look backwards and look forward every year. Over time, there will be a dialogue of different versions yourself through the years.
Early 2019, we can check in and share some of our reflections and hopes.
And Happy New Years!!! @AsIAmInspo
Thank you, Next✌🏻
Hahaha I never got to use it as a caption so here’s me trynna sneak the bad bish in. On a real note tho. Thank you 2018 for teaching me that self love isn’t all about face masks and treating myself. Self love is about disciplining yourself and knowing what’s good for you even if you fucking HATE IT (mornings will forever be my enemy but I guess we can be frenemies). I learned that no matter how hard you try... sometimes shit doesn’t work out and that’s okay. As long as I know I tried my best- I think that’s what matters. I’ve also learned so much within myself that I can proudly say that I AM READY FOR WHAT 2019 WILL BRING ME. All of the future ups that I can’t wait to celebrate and the downs that I know will kick my ass.
I am fucking ready.

🌹My Love Letter to 2018🌹
First and foremost, thank you for being the year filled with tests, challenges, milestones and lessons that changed my life unexpectedly. I had a love and hate relationship with you. I was broken. I was seeking to love my authentic self wholeheartedly and embrace her. All this time, God revealed it to me through His eternal love for me; yet it was a long day's journey to feel it. Throughout all the setbacks and triumphs, each day brought forth a rejuvenation in all areas of my being and life. Every smile, tear, laugh, praise, dance, pain, prayer, and so forth led me to inner peace. Cheers to all my failures, scars, and breakthroughs because it was the cleanse which realigned me back to God and the pleasure of waiting for His timing. God lifted me up from these mountains like a Phoenix and declared fear no more. It was ONLY by God's strength, love, and trust that I made it this far and shall continue to do so.
2018, you were my clearinghouse year and 2019 shall be my restoration year.
As for 2019, I'm waiting for you excitedly, to leap into my greatness and conquer the heart of God. An outpouring of thanks to God, my parents, my family, friends, and my spiritual parents @domosei
for being a beacon of light that shifted my life for the better.
Lastly, farewell 2018 and each lesson you taught me is coded into my spirit. The moments of my life that were dim in 2018 will not follow me into the new year. 2019 is the return of my star.

Dear 2018, You’ve been a big year for me. You were hard and wonderful altogether. You were very welcome after the long rough time the year before. 2017 seemed like it would never end, but you were gone in the blink of an eye.
You started out lonely. Driving back and forth to South Carolina, saying goodbye to Grandpa. He told me that I better make it to heaven to see him again. I promised that I would be there. He gave me his car as a parting gift. 🚙
Then in the summer I finished up high school. I was scared to finish. I prayed for time to stand still in 2018, but you wouldn’t stop.
Opened my first bank account and learned why I had been putting it off for so long. You taught me that the bank is one of my new least favorite places on the planet. If only keeping money in my closet slippers was still acceptable behavior.
I turned 19. I got my permit and my license within two months time. Learned that driving with the windows down and music blaring is actually tons of fun.
I traveled ✈️ by myself for the first time to finally see Olivia in person!!! It was the highlight of my summer.
Being 19 brought several new faces to my life. I started my first semester of college and had my first experience in a real class room with different professors and peers.
While you, 2018, brought lots of new friends and faces, I lost some friends too. Said goodbye to our cat, Jules, of eighteen years. He served us well and had a good long life, but I was sad to see him go.
Had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family in Adel, Georgia. Kartwright, my bro, taught me how to shoot a gun. I made him pumpkin roll in return.
Kartwright won a baking competition with my desert recipe. I had to put that in here 😂. Definitely a highlight 😉
I got a new babysitting job with three little boys under four. Little boys are so fun!! Best job ever!!
Then CHRISTMAS!! Simply put, it was fantastic. Visited Colorado for the first time. Saw lots of rocks and beautiful mountains!! Made more new friends. Saw Elk! Learned what real cold was and that you need sunscreen in the north too, who new?!
Lastly, to top it all off, got to see all my nieces and nephews and I was a very happy Aunt 💜
I've got a chance to see Janet Jackson TWICE this year and I got a chance to meet her DJ. I went back to school and graduated. Got a better job! I'm progressing.
As the clock 🕰 continues to countdown our final hours of 2018, i am thankful for all of the sweet blessings and lessons. This was the year i stepped out on faith was tested multiple times with many trials and tribulations. But out of those trials came so many triumphs. Went on some beautiful adventures 🗺 ✈️. Bought my first brand new 🚙. Planned and coordinated some awesome events, created some beautiful memories with my loved ones and many more. Those are some of the key 🔑 highlights and memories of 2018. I pray in 2019 i become more wiser, stronger and continue to inspire others. Thank you 2018.2019, You Ready?
Happy New Year Everyone 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ #thankyou2018 #dear2018 #nye2019 #sograteful #godisgood
It was hard. It was not easy. It was more Down's then Up's. It was a Rolercoaster Drive. But I never give up. I always Fight. Even when it Hurts. Even when my Soul breaks. Even when my Heart breaks. It was more then I can handel. But a little Silverlight is on my Horizon. A Group of crazy, awesome; loveley People.
I'm thankful for that.
I hope this is it.
I just want a little bit Peace for my Soul and my Heart. Just to take a Rest. Just to breath... to heal... Please, no Repeat anymore... Thanks.

, the year I decided I’m going to do everything and anything that makes me happy. It’s also Year of the Dog, my Chinese zodiac, so I decided to make this year my bitch 🤗
This year has brought on A LOT of changes. I learned to love myself more, face my demons and learn to live life more positively.
Those who’ve known me for years would say that I’m so different from how I was or that I’m almost unrecognizable.
I suppressed myself because of my family, their reputation and expectations from the businesses. I needed to be proper, conservative and act appropriately. I didn’t have an identity of my own. I also didn’t know how to love or express myself enough, that it took a toll on myself and my relationship.
Starting 2018, I decided to go to the gym more seriously and see what kind of progress I’d make. I chopped off my long dark virgin hair and coloured it for the first time ever. My well-known physical trait - gone. Got Swarovski crystals put on my teeth - giving me an extra reason to smile. Finally, got the tattoos I’ve always wanted. And of course my first ever boudoir shoot with @emmeline.gr
This boudoir shoot, was the biggest turning point in my self love journey. I knew I wanted to capture my progress and cross this off my bucket list. During and after my shoot I felt fucking amazing! I felt as though I no longer had flaws or insecurities. I’m just me and I love me. I was flooding with love, positivity and good vibes and thought that everyone should feel that way.
The best way to describe it is that Em helped me fit into my own skin and just own it. I felt invincible.
Fast forward to the end of this great year, I’ve grown and have gotten so much stronger as a person.
This year has blessed me with so many opportunities and I got to meet so many amazing people along the way. I was able to spread my self love and positivity starting with the people closest to me, then eventually branching out.
I know my progress is nowhere near finished, but slowly but surely I’ll get there.
Cheers to many more positive days in the new year! 🎆

year. The year that i made time more valuable than before. The time that i decided to make my why specifically, why i want to help others, what my purpose is. The moment i started my education to become an NLP Master Coach, every thing fell into place. I've got my speakers certificate, i've had the best teachers, coaches and mentor. I learned from them, one by one give the things i needed at the moment of learning, and the things i will continue. I learned also from the beautifull and lovely people i got to know this year, as they got to Learn from me to. So much love and compliments i received, tears from letting go of blockages and tears of joy. Every thing came through just by being positive and connecting with the right people.
Thank you god NLPfamily friends & family ma pa , thank you @rutneysluis @didi.dirceu @pimjanszen

You have been the most meaningful year of my life as well as the most heartbreaking . You have been such a great lesson to me . Alot of changes occurred and broke me real bad , but I'm still blessed because it taught me that what really matters in my life and who is really here for me.
You have been so harsh to me but it was all for my betterment . This year I grew up mentally and became stronger like never before. I became stronger emotionally , physically and mentally .
I know what I have to do. This year taught me patience and gave me alots of hurdles as well , no doubt .
This year gave me alot of new people who became so special to me and I also lost the people who were really close to my heart but I'm blessed.
Thank you 2k18 for everything and
Javeria Khalid. .

Here’s to you. Thank You. Thank you, for making this one of the toughest years of my life, yet one of the most cherished ones. Through you, I’ve learnt more about myself than I ever thought I could. You brought along great friends and relationships, but also taught me of heartbreak and toxicity.
You’ve shown me that a small smile and a touch of optimism can make any situation better. You’ve helped me grasp the true meaning behind, ‘You win some, you lose some.’ You kept on throwing thorns into my way, and only today do I realize just how much I needed those thorns in my life, to help me get used to the roses life had to offer.
I’m sorry for blaming you for all that seemed to go terribly downhill this year. So far, 2018 has been a climb. And now that I’m mere minutes away from ending this journey, I know I like the view from where I stand right now.
Here’s to you. To be honest, unlike my hopes for the past few ‘New Years’, I don’t expect you to be perfect- rather, I hope you’d be anything but. I’ve come to learn that happiness can’t be measured without pain. And so, I hope, you bring me pain. But along with the hardships, teach me kindness. Patience. Care. Love. Blend all that with a pinch of heartbreak, to tell me that it’s okay to wear my heart on my sleeve only to get it broken by somebody else. Make me fall. Let me know of the negatives around me, but give me strength to block them out.
Here’s to you. You’ve made it through another year. And no matter how crazy the year has been, you’ve done a great job. With the new year just outside our doors, there are a few things I feel you should know with 2018 coming to an end.
Remember to love yourself. It’s okay to think about yourself first, rather than others. It’s okay to feel vulnerable around somebody who you know might not stay. I want you to take every chance that comes your way. Explore. Try. Live. Love. This year, tell people you love them. Appreciate the ones close to you, and the ones that are yet to come. Smile a little more. Laugh. Cry your heart out. Anything- just let yourself feel. .
Remember, this is your year.
