closing chapter 31

i can honestly, cross my heart say that 31 has been my worst year ever.

without a doubt, the past 12 months have been some of the most challenging & painful for me & as i inch closer to turning 32, i’m more than ready to turn the page & close this chapter.

nothing in my life is the same as it was one short year ago & i definitely feel like i lost more than i won.

as the months passed i spent countless afternoons moping around with my dog Harley.

i started scribbling down inspirational quotes or sayings i liked, posting them around my room, hoping to feel better.

and i did. then i started journaling & felt even better.

hopeful words & a happy little dog ended up making a huge difference for me.

but halfway through this year, Harls was diagnosed with cancer & i had to say goodbye to my best friend of 10 years.

now i find myself really lost, wondering what the heck to do next & missing my afternoons with Harley more than anything.

those moments helped me through some pretty tough times & i’m sharing them now, in Harley’s memory so they might help you too.

xxoo, k

  1. Today, I m closing Chapter 31, and opening Chapter 32 tomorrow with a fun trip with my best friend.  I spent some time reflecting on my fears of turning 30, what I learned in my , my goals for turning 30, and then reflecting on my h year.  I won t lie, but 31 was a hard year all around.  However, it was a year where I focused on seeing the positive, learning, and growing, and for that, I am grateful. I find myself to be self-reflective, and at times, to a fault.  I generally like to get a lot of people s opinions and perspectives on situations before making a decision.  However, I also realized that those opinions and perspectives are shaped by people s personal experiences and that I make up my own mind based on my experiences and goals.  I am lucky to have some great friends who coach me, inspire me, and check me, and also know when I need advice and when I just need to vent.  I am striving for more of this in year 32 and less of people telling me how to live my life and cluttering my brain.
