The Most Important Lessons I Learned in 2018

Happy (almost) 2019! It seems crazy to me that it's already almost January of the new year... I feel like just yesterday I was at the beach during the summer. If you've been following along since last year, you know I'm not the biggest fan of New Year's Resolutions. Only 8% of people stick to their fitness resolutions and I'm sure the numbers aren't much higher for anything else - I feel like it's almost a broken promise to yourself or to others that leads you to be even more discouraged. If you were to ask me, I'd say that every day when you wake up you need to decide what you want to change and what your priorities are and get whatever that is done, no matter how far into the year it is. That being said, I do always reflect on the past year and look back at all that I've learned after the Christmas festivities are over. I think it's safe to say that this year was full of lessons that were learned as a result of both positive and negative experiences, and I'm grateful for all of them. 

pure happiness with 3 of my favorite things - ice cream, my puppy, and my little sister
