I thought about doing a year recap, but if I’m honest, even though it’s been professionally good, it wasn’t a great year when it comes to personal life. I started the year really empowered and I thought I could do anything because I had everyone I thought I needed. But, unfortunately, all the aspects of my life started to fall down one by one and there was no way I could change that.

It’s been a year full of breakdowns I’ve been recovering from progressively. Every time I felt like I had everything handled another thing fell down, over and over again. All of this until mid-December.

But, I think that everything happens for a reason, and even though these have been things I didn’t enjoy going through, I feel like all experiences provide you with something good you must find.

In not a beautiful and enjoyable way I’ve learned to love myself. I thought I was already taking care of myself, loving me, taking time for me, etc. But, now I realize that that was just a facade. I did things for myself, but deep down I didn’t do enough, or I didn’t do them truly for myself.

It feels weird because it’s been less than a month and I’m just starting to realize this, but I know this is the right thing to do now, for me. I’m starting a new year on my own, a year I’ll spend entirely for myself. This might sound selfish, but eventually, we all should be some kind of selfish, because that’s called self-love.

I won’t put any barriers to my goals, I’ll do whatever I want to do even though then I realize it wasn’t a great idea, I will have fun, I’ll surround myself with the most beautiful people I have ever met, I’ll get inspired, and the most important, I’ll grow as a person.

To grow is my goal this year. Obviously, I want to professionally grow, but to personally grow is my main goal this year. With this, all I want to do is empower you. As you can see not everything is what it looks like, we all go through things, but we can all recover and grow from them, and that’s probably the most amazing thing about life.

I wish you all a great beginning of 2019, so much love, and power for yourself.

Love and lipstick ❤

    • I have no idea of the name of the nail polish I wear, but I always go for nude tones to make my fingers look more slender!

  1. I am so sorry for you. But wish you a very happy new year. Be thankful for the good times. And the bad. Because I’ve learned, you’ll appreciate the good ones much more. And sometimes the bad things repeat themselves unless you learn the leasson. I had to learn this the hard way but I am much happier now. And goddamn your Outfit is awesome. I love everything & such ahmazing photography skills. LOVE!!!

    • I totally agree with you! Having hard times makes you appreciate and be thankful for the good ones, and there’s no better way to learn and grow as a person than to have to go through tough times and make decisions. Love your support! Hope you have an incredible year!
