2019 was quite the year. To be honest, I would call it my best year yet. So many wonderful things happened in 2019, that I feel really excited for 2020. I’m not really sure how it could get any better. Keep on reading for a summary of what the heck happened in 2019.
Some good things that happened this year include but are not limited to: dating Andrew (the best person in the whole world), getting a new job, finally saving up some money for the future, reaching 1,000+ Instagram followers (finally), fully committing to the growth of my blog, traveling to 3 countries and within the US, connecting with other bloggers online and IRL, landing not one, but two brand partnerships and SO much more. This truly was my best year so far. There’s no words for how thankful I am for everything that happened this year because it set me up for so much more to come next year.
Even through all the fun and frills, it wasn’t a perfect year. Here are some of the bad things that happened in 2019: didn’t quite reach my goal of 200 blog followers by the end of the year (*edit: I reached this just a few days before Christmas!), I lost my job, I effed up my finances for a bit being unemployed (and before that if we’re honest), experienced burn out more times than I can count, stopped going to the gym, spent a ton of time comparing myself to other people and a ton of other things too.
I have some more thoughts on this coming in tomorrow’s bonus blog post, but I have big plans for 2020. One year goes by so fast, but there is so much that can be done in that amount of time. My main goals for next year are to really dive full force into my blog/Instagram and create things that I love. I want to move out on my own, make new friends, travel and explore a different part of myself as an adult in her mid-twenties. There’s so much room for growth and I have a lot of learning to do, but I feel really ready to take on some new things. I’m looking forward to making 2020 my best year yet.
