New Year. Same Me.

At the end of the day it's still the same me, but I'm working on becoming a better version of myself. This year was absolutely amazing and although I had a few bumps in the road -- I made it to my destination nonetheless. If you want to know what blessed is, just ask me about my story. Long story short, dreams come true. They might not come when you're ready for them to, but they will when the timing is right. I had to hold onto fast and remain patient before every manifested. It literally took years, but 2015 those dreams, aspirations and goals bloomed into fruition. It's been a beautiful journey and I'm just ready to see what's in store in the year ahead. I've learned a lot this past year and I plan on taking that knowledge with me along the way. It hasn't been easy, but it hasn't been hard. It hasn't been full of laughs, but it hasn't been full of tears. At the end of the day, you have to see the beauty from both angles in order to truly see something beautiful. With that being said, if you're interested in what I learned in 2015 -- get your note taking skills ready and keep scrolling.

1.) One Basket Won't Hold All Your Eggs

In other words, I had to learn to get rid of all expectations. Whether that be friends, family, a potential crush or even a goal -- everything is not always going to fall into place and that's cool. Learn to go with the flow and let things work themselves out. 'Que Sera, Sera.' Basically, what's meant to be, will be.

2.) You Have To Make Sacrifices

At the end of the day, you know what's best. You know what works and what doesn't work. You know what you have to do. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. Making sacrifices sometimes mean leaving some folks behind and that's okay. If they're meant to be in your life, they will catch up.

3.) Know Your Worth.

This happens to be the most important and it stuck with me throughout the entire year, especially during the summer. Sometimes you will be placed in a situation where you have to choose between two things. Know the difference between self-worth and selfishness. When you don't know your worth you're only being selfish to your true self. Don't place anyone before yourself. If they want to be apart of your life, they will understand that your self-worth means more than a few words that don't add up at the end of the day. If you can love yourself, you won't have to go out searching for someone else to do so.
