HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR BABIES!!!! Whoa I can’t believe it’s almost the middle of January where has the time gone already! I’ve been trying to figure out what to write about what I loved most about last year. But to be blunt 2017 has taught me a whole lot. I’m serious this is not a drill. One of the things that 2017 taught me was that it’s okay to be by yourself. It’s okay that you don’t have a lot of friends. It’s okay to take time for yourself for once and not be worried about the toxic people that you’ve had in your life. Another thing that 2017 taught me is that it’s not about the quantity of friends that make you it’s the quality of friends that make you. In the words of one of my girls crush’s Demi Lovato sorry not sorry. 2017 helped me realise who was really my friend and who was not. And if I’m being honest I can literally count on my 5 fingers all the friends I have.

2017 has also taught me about love, loyalty, respect, trust, friendship, intimacy, connection, 
bonding, and companionship. Some of the ingredients for a healthy relationship. It took me awhile to accept the fact that if there is none of those traits in your relationship then it’s not going to work. Relationships in 2017 has been one of my challenges I’ve had many up’s and down’s with my relationship in 2017 and to be honest I’m at ease and peace with the fact that it’s okay to be alone sometimes and that, "I guess that’s just part of loving people.. you have to give things up. Sometimes you even have to give them up" it was difficult but now I’m healing and it feels great to be in a place where I’m taking care of me not only spiritually, but mentally, and physically. Life will throw curve balls at you but with time you can overcome those setbacks.

I must admit there are a lot of things that didn’t go my way in 2017. But I didn’t let those setbacks hold me back from what I wanted to accomplish. In life one must learn to take on the disappointments with the achievements. In 2017, I accomplished a lot even though some days felt like my life was ending and I had no where to turn. I’ve experienced joy, happiness, pain, love, laughter, sadness, and surprises.

You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It doesn't matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance you dont have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. Its one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go. 2017 taught me that words are powerful. Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for Good , because the only words you'll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone. Even though 2017 was a good year I know that in the many more years to come I will finally have the happily ever after that I have been searching for.
