Goodbye 2018

Like every year, 2018 had some ups and it had some downs but y’all, it felt like one the roughest years me, especially the last quarter. The holidays are literally my favorite time of year but this year it felt different. In November I had a terrible car accident and after that everything kind of went downhill. My emotions were all over the place, I was eating terribly causing my weight to shoot up, my spending was out of control and it was just a mess y’all. I just couldn’t get myself back on track and feeling like T. Danni again. Well, a few weeks ago I finally got a little into the spirit of the holidays and started feeling better. I was having more good days then bad days. Now, never mind that Christmas was in a week and then NYE, I was feeling better and could pull myself together enough to be holly and jolly. I learned one of my biggest lessons (and taking notes on it) during this rough time that will go with me right into 2019. 
The last quarter of 2018 taught me that being strong and independent doesn’t mean that you aren’t invincible. You are allowed days to cry, to grieve and to just not be yourself. The key is to be sure that you don’t stay in that place to long and be sure you are able to ask for help and take time for the word of 2018, “self-care.” I plan to take this lesson right into 2019 with me. No resolutions for me this year but I have 5 key words I am taking into 2019:
  1. Love
  2. Strength
  3. Vulnerability 
  4. Consistency 
  5. Faith
The list could go on but these are the 5 words I am focusing on in 2019. They are all words that allowed me to make it through the last quarter of 2018. In the blink of an eye I could have not been here but since I am, 2019 I am taking no prisoners. Living each day to the fullest and living with no regrets. Let me know in the comments what are some of your words or resolutions for 2018? 
(P.S.: I hope y’all don’t mind this late, late, holiday post…lol.)
