living life yellow.
the ramblings of a 21 year old
Hello my lovely blog readers and happy new year!
Let's be honest, it seems like 2017 was a bit of a bitch to a lot of us, myself included. It did not go the way I had planned at all and I finished 2017 with the total of 3 surgeries.
I was thinking very negatively of 2017 until I saw an instagram post saying;
"When you look back on the year of 2017, don't think of it as a year of growth. You made it through each day. You should be proud of yourself. You are a better you, despite all the hardships. Take a deep breath and enter 2018 with hope and confidence."

I learnt so much about myself and think I became a much stronger person because of it. 2017 was a very challenging year in regard to my health but now I have all of that sorted (hopefully) for a few years. Yes, I will still be in pain some days, but because I took the time to actually take charge of my health, I can start my life back up again.
I have also come to terms that a lot of really good things happened to me in 2017 as well. I developed some really good friendships. I met an amazing guy. I pet a lot of dogs. I started up a blog. I went on 3 road trips. Leo and I adopted a dog. Bounce did some freaking cool things. I got to see my best friend who I usually see once a year, 3 times. I am starting a new job. Yes, a lot of shit happened, but a lot of amazing things happened also.
I am wanting to make the most of 2018 and to do this I have made a list. On this list I have written down all the goals and resolutions I have for 2018 which are:
