december 26.
I don't have a lot to say, but perhaps these pictures alone will speak a few words for you. 2018 was a beautiful Christmas and I hope yours was a wonderful one as well!!
i can't believe 2018 is almost over like wooooww what even?? I went through my last journal to the last day of december 2017, and there I was wondering what 2018 would hold for me just as I'm now wondering what 2019 has in store.

reading my thoughts for what I wanted 2018 to be was actually very enlightening and eye opening...and honestly, shocking. I'd reached almost all the self goals I'd scribbled down for myself and really saw a change in myself that I was realizing already, but hadn't yet fully comprehended. 
on Christmas eve I went through my entire journal and planner and wrote down highlights and thoughts of 2018. I filled 10 pages.
last year my last words in my new years journal entry were "be brave. be bold." and when I wrote that, I can't say I fully know what that meant, but that I know it now. and man, it is amazing.

I want to do a whole post on this later, for for now, I'd just like to say that journaling so much and going through past memories is something I think everyone should do, especially at the end of a year. you may not always see how far you've come until you look back and see for yourself.
2018 was a year of growing for me, and I can already tell 2019 is going to be a year of change. praying for all of you as we soon enter this new year xxxxxxxx

life has been good. my full journal it a witness of that. there have been not-so-great days along with the beautiful but deciding to choose happy and joy and do things out of my comfort zone has resulted in more happiness for me. idk if that makes sense or not but there's that. I hope you are all having a beautiful holiday season and are creating many new memories with the people you love. merry merry christmas xxxxxxxxxxxx
