words matter : the words that got me through 2017.
1. Growth - i am not complete, i am still a work in progress and will never be truly done.
2. Perseverance - i won't advance in this life if i don't allow myself to push through the hard shit in life.
3. Sorry - man, the power of the word sorry. 2017 helped me understand the importance of the word and how to say it when i'm wrong.
4. Forgivness - in 2017 i learned how to forgive myself for treating myself without care, forgive myself for the ways i treated other people because of my internalized hurt but most of all i've learned to forge people who couldn't say sorry for hurting me - their faults do not reflect on me.
5. Acceptance - accepting that that this is the life i've been given and its up to me what comes of it.
6. I'm here - the power of the statement, whether im saying it to someone else or i'm hearing someone say it to me.
7. No - i do not have to say yes to everyone and anyone. its important to say no when i need a break from life or when needed to stand up for myself.
8. Let go - let go of all the negativity before it chews me up and spits me out.
