It’s that time of year again…to say goodbye. I’m here to say goodbye to 2016, which was filled with love, laughter, and tears. I explored my ideas and dreams, made mistakes, felt my heart beat fast, wrote some beautiful stories, and loved a lot. It was incredible, and yet, just another year of learning and growing for me. I had to leave a few people behind in order to write new chapters. I also met some beautiful people this past year, who I’m thankful for.
Unfortunately, some people are only meant to ignite our lives for a short period of time. Flames don’t burn forever. Sometimes letting go can be healing and powerful, whether a job is no longer fulfilling, or a dream is no longer there. Other times, it’s harder to let go. There are some things that I will carry with me, always.
