Goodbye 2016

They say a lot can happen in a year… shitttttt I’ll say.
 This past year was different for me… this was a year of growth.
 This was a year of pain, self- discovery, passion, heartache, confusion, anxiety, doubts, self-love, spirituality, and love. — Yes all of that wrapped into one. 2016 for me was my transition year… I have learned so much about life and myself .
 If someone would of asked me how I felt about this year months and months ago … I could have said 2016 was awful because of the pain I went through for half of the year…..
 but why dwell? The pain brought me so many amazing things that I would of never imagined happening.. Who knew I would go back to school, who knew I would find new passion in a different career or start doing yoga? Or start this blog….Not me..
 Quick Recap: Started doing yoga everyday, started this blog, started a small business, went back to school for naturopathic medicine, started making my own natural health products, travelled a lot with my friends, learned how to manage anxiety/fears, started reading frequently, re-found love that got lost temporarily in myself and in him, got my own apartment, bought a new car. Crazinesss. 365 days I’m here…
 Dear 2016,
 Thank you for helping me not only discover and embrace who I am as a woman (strong) but showing me who I want to be from now → on. Thank you for showing me what’s important in life, and most importantly thank you for teaching me self-love. You have changed my life and I will be forever grateful.

Who is she

{26} Just a girl who decided to go for it. Like any woman in her mid 20's- we go through one or hell even many transitions.. Graduating school, moving out on our own, the relationships, the breakups, the career.. Transitions are never easy.. But you know what is even worse ? Stagnation. As satisfying as it is to be an Occupational Therapist- I knew I not only wanted more.. but I needed more. I needed to have more purpose, I needed something bigger.. something more fulfilling. I became engaging in integrative medicine (yoga, acupuncture, etc.) and I was introduced to Naturopathic Medicine. A light bulb went off in my head and I thought .. this is it.. This is what I’m meant to do. I have always been passionate about everything in my life- the workaholic (early mornings- long days- no sleep) but I finally realized how stressed I was. So here I am- running towards my goals and my passions for my future. If any of you beautiful humans care to read my nonsense- thank you :) I’ll try to keep it interesting.

“Passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body, and soul into something as humanly possible.”
