Is it just me or does the thought of leaving 2017 behind make you a little sad? I had some good and bad times this year but I made it through by the grace of God. After years of working for different employers through temp agencies, I finally landed a permanent job. When you come from not knowing when and if the job will end your assignment to stability in a workplace, you become a lot more grateful. The change felt wonderful and now I have the ability to excel in the corporate world. Shortly after that I made the decision to create my blog. Before creating my website, I rememer debating with myself on if I should go through with it out of the fear for failure. Now that it had been 8 months, my blog is doing well and I have been complimented heavily on my shares. Can’t wait for more to come! Quality vacation time with my family and best friends was lit this year. I surpised my sister with a Disney trip for her 30th birthday because she had never been and it turned out to be AMAZING! We took numerous trips to my hometown(Chicago) to visit family and I even took a trip to the beach with my best friends..Without the kids lol. 2017 had it’ downs as well. I lost a few friendships throughout the year, but I have learned that if something is so easy to walk away from, it wasn’t meant to be in the beginning. To sum it all up, 2017 was a rollercoaster of events that has now come to an end. I did things that I never thought I would do, and I tried things that has helped alter my growth. I’m taking my lessons and blessings of 2017 into 2018 with me because I know that out of everything that I experienced, it has prepared me for the walk to greater.
