I can't even remember the last time I really took my time to update this blog. Months ago ?! While a lot of things happened in the past few months starting from creative projects at work, my trips to Maldives and Nepal, I just can't believe in a few weeks, it will be a new year. A new year to begin again, live and dream bigger.
If there's one thing I learned a lot in 2017, that would be self love. Practicing self-love isn't as easy as it sounds. Have been incredibly lucky to live abroad by myself for the past few years, I always make sure to put myself and obviously my happiness as the first priority. I love the whole idea being an independent woman who fights for her dreams, she's fearless, fun, fabulous, and always up for adventures and celebrating life. Looking back I still had no idea how a girl from a small town like me ended up here...living the kind of life I designed. Been to many countries, cities I never heard before, even landed myself couple of dream jobs. The best thing for me has always been surrounded by good people. A true blessing wherever I go, I always run into beautiful souls who inspire, build, love me the way I am. And just when I thought I know almost everything about self love, I had to learn the hard way this year how to put myself and my happiness first above everything else. It's really not easy when you have to deal with some people who underestimate or belittle you. The kind of negative people who try to bring you down, spread bad energy, jealousy, anger and hatred. I thought I was overthinking, so I tried so hard to make them like me, to accept me, to prove them wrong... I tried so hard to the point I started to lose myself. Well, people said sometimes you gotta lose yourself to discover who you are. I can't control what happens in life, but I can control how I respond to it all. In my response is greatest power. I choose me. I choose peace, my happiness. No one can dim my light unless I give them the power to. I'm grateful to go through so much ups and downs this year, struggle that only makes me stronger and finally lead me to discover my new passion for pole dance. Never thought through pole dance I found my strength and confident back. I learned to express myself again, to let go of toxic people, toxic relationships. Some people are just so hard to please anyway and definitely not worth your time or energy. But one thing I tell myself every single day, to always doing the right things even when no one's watching. Your hard work does not go unnoticed, and someday the rewards will follow. This little miss sunshine will keep putting one foot in front of the other, and just like hopes springing high, still she'll rise.
