Well...embarrassed doesn't really even cover it! I...there are no words. And no excuses really for why I haven't blogged in so long, I suppose blogging started to become somewhat too egocentric for me and I had to take a hot minute away from it, but here I am...blogging away again.
2017 was easily the best and worst year of my entire life. It was the best because I started this podcast. I began connecting to so many of you as well as so many interesting humans on the show and I traveled more than I ever have in my life...how fulfilling and exciting and thrilling on a deep personal level. But alas, it was the worst year of my life because the one person I love the most on the entire planet fell very ill and continues to fight every day to keep his health, heart and mind alive. Why does life work this way sometimes? I don't know. I'm not a big 'everything happens for a reason' type of gal, but I do try to remain positive. I try. Hard.
What was 2017 for you? Do you even place any value on time? I do and I don't. I don't believe in New Years resolutions, but I believe in keeping goals. I believe in the power of will power, ones self determination and that the human mind and heart are one extreme cluster of unknowns and hot minutes and emotions that make up who we are, even if time is endless and ongoing and everything, even if there just isn't always a reason for the hard times, the good times...you just have to keep going. Right?
We are all trying to keep going and hopefully you're being kind to the planet and others around you as you follow and pursue all your dreams into 2018. I know I am and I can't wait to keep going on the ride with you all, thanks for going on the journey with me and yeah. I will keep coming back to the blog if you will :).
Best as always ~ Ali
