2019

‘It’s been a hard year. Just take the next breath. Make the next decision. Keep going, even when everything within you is begging you to stop.’: Woman reminds us to keep pushing through, even when ‘life as you knew it ceases to exist’

“When you get the diagnosis. When the relationship completely falls apart. When mental illness becomes a real thing, not just something you hear about. When the company downsizes. When that person who was supposed to be there, isn’t. As you dig yourself out of the rubble, look back with lessons learned. Sometimes it takes the worst things to wake us up to the best things.”

‘Maybe 2019 wasn’t your year. Pat yourself on the back, look at yourself in the mirror, and tell yourself you made it.’: Woman claims ‘it’s never too late for a new beginning’ in the New Year

“Maybe you never lost that 15 pounds, or paid off that credit card debt. You never got that dream job or organized your linen closet. Or your life. You didn’t open a book daily or drink enough water. Maybe 2019 will not go down as the year that will be remembered forever. But if you’ve accomplished nothing more than living 365 days this year, that’s okay. Completely okay.”
