We’ve come to the closing of another Gregorian calendar year. Yay! We made it! Of the millions who have died in the year 2017, you and I have been naturally selected by nature to continue on. Pat yourself on the shoulder, I just did.
Ultimately, what I have learnt this past year is that I am seasonal. Every year, I get lost, I forget who I am and the only thing that keeps me alive are my goals, because I never forget those. I wake up everyday with the same desires; to travel, to travel and eat, to fall in love, to show and teach love, to learn, to discover, to meet new people and to share stories. I wake up everyday wanting to be a Neuropsychologist, who cooks and bakes, travels the world full time,served as an officer in the army, is a foster mom who retires on a self sustainable farm with dogs, horses, cats, and many other animals. I plant, nurture and reap my own food and I dance naked around my house listening to music and drinking wine. Haha.

They say a picture says a thousand words so even though I spent about 4 days writing a month by month review, it turned out to be too lengthy so I have posted a slideshow of pictures on Facebook @faith2040 and I will do a month by month with a sentence and/or a blog post that captured what that month was about. The months are hyperlinks so click them if you’d like to see the blog that sums up that month. It was a year of discovery and blessings! Cheers to old and new friends! See you next year! 💞✨😃😇
January was great.
I hiked the Blue mountains, explored hotel and resort life in Ja, found 2 great mentors and learnt about chakras. Re-visted my interest in entrepreneurship.
February – May
I fell into depression. I was suicidal, anxious and terribly afraid. You have no idea how grateful I am for life and love today.
I still tried though. I was making a bit of money through Airbnb, I learnt how to use a sewing machine and recycle old clothes to make new things. I learnt how to braid my own hair, I completed the Jamaica Defence Force’s Officer Selection Board, I fell in love, started grad school applications, did an island Road Trip for Easter Weekend….I tried. Hard. And my friends were very supportive in the moments when I was beating myself up, crying myself to sleep, not doing my hair and dressing like a mentally ill homeless person (lol, I wasn’t too far from that)
I’ve been a failure and I’m probably going to do it again
A letter to self
Just take one step at a time…
Trust Your Journey.

This month was about owning my fears, realizing how I act out when I am afraid and deciding to follow through on my commitments to self.
As I close with doing reviews of my year, I eagerly anticipate sunrise on Jan. 1. 2018. A great year ahead! I will write gratitude letters everyday. I enjoy writing my own story. I will share my Vision Board 2018 or perhaps portions of it with you in the New Year.
