Goodbye, 2018! | My 1SE

Wow. Another year has passed. As I reflect on everything that has happened in 2018, the one word I could use to sum it all up is grateful. I’ve learned so much about myself, and I am so proud of all the things I’ve accomplished this year. I really tried to push myself out of my comfort zone, and challenged myself to be accountable to myself. I felt like I went through a big identity crisis (lowkey still in the middle of it, but I’m handling things better now), but I know that I’m getting closer and closer to the person that I want to become.

This year really showed me just how amazing the people in my life are. I have been so blessed to have met amazing friends, create new bonds, and strengthen current relationships. We have made countless memories in this year alone!

I hope everyone had a blessed 2018, and if you didn’t, just know that you are in control of your life, and you have the power to turn it all around (I genuinely feel like I’m a living testament of this). I’m grateful to have made it into 2019, and I’m thankful for all you for supporting me.

 

(ALSO I still have to finish editing Vlogmas Week 3, but I promise it’s coming! I also shot a bonus vlog for funzies that you can all look forward to!)

2017 In Review – My 1SE

Happy new year everyone! Wow. Can you believe it? We made it through another rotation around the sun. It couldn’t have come soon enough, if you ask me. I look back at the year and it made me realize just how fast it has passed, and it makes me think about everything that I have learned and experienced in the past 365 days. It also makes me very glad that I took on a 1 Second Everyday and a Project 365, because I’m always going to be able to remember this year of my life.

This wasn’t necessarily the easiest year of my life (in fact, I would say that 2017 is up there on the list of difficult, trying years), but if there was one thing I could take away from it, was that I learned a lot. This year tested me in so many ways, and some times I thought I would burst from the stress and anxiety I felt during the difficult times of this year. But I made it out alive, and I’m still trying to learn how to find the balance in my life. And if there is one thing I can take away from 2017 is the amount of lessons I’ve learned – about myself and about life in general.

I hope this year treated you well, and if it didn’t then, good news! It’s a new year haha. May 2018 be everything you want it to be and more. Remember that you cannot control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to it!

💖, B
