An honest evaluation of my personal growth in 2017.
It was a bad end to a bad 2017. Back pain coupled with depression made me miss a lot of the Christmas season and just life in general. So naturally I turned my hair into a unicorn mane to feel better.
If you’ve read any of my personal posts this past year, particularly the one I wrote this time last year, you’ll know I had some pretty standard resolutions for 2017, but I’ve hit a few roadblocks along the way. First of all, I want to say that NONE of these is an excuse for failure, but rather a recognition of areas where I need to improve. Specifically, areas of physical and mental pain.
Having one or the other is difficult, but experiencing both at the same time is, for me, devastating. For the pain month or so, I’ve been struggling to function in any capacity. I’m either bedridden from back pain, or I’m bedridden from depression. Many days I don’t even make it out of me bedroom to eat. I’m dehydrated because I’m not drinking much water so I don’t have to go to the bathroom. Suffice it to say, healthy diet and exercise are non-existent in my life. Also, why else would this post be a week late??
The good side to this is that, while I’ve had difficulty putting it into practice, I’ve learned a ton of information on self-improvement. Some people might think that’s a load of hoohah, but someone like me needs all the help she can get.
As far as my business is concerned, I’m in a slightly better place than I was last year. I think that’s what I’m most excited about this year. I don’t want to say too much just yet, but I’m actually (relatively) pumped for the things I have planned!
I hope our 2018 is waaaaay more badass than our 2017. That’s it, really. Keep striving, keep improving, and while we might not be perfect, we’re always perfecting.
