What I Learned in 2014
I live my life not just for me, but for you too. Of course I'm selfish in my own ways but most of my decisions in life and need for more are to make a difference in the world or your life. I want to and strive to make a social impact, motivate, inspire growth, and EMPOWER. I don't live selfishly to do whatever I want and demand ME ME ME. I am as much here for you as I am here for myself. Being a part of your world (for 5 minutes, 5 days, or for life) is what I want for US. And I kind of feel like anything otherwise is arrogant and selfish.
The more I worked and lived through 2014, the stronger I felt (feel) about how right this way of life is for me. I'm so happy about where I am right in this moment. I don't remember what my resolutions were for the year, but I feel like I probably surpassed them. I have come out on the other side of this year stronger and healthier than I've ever been in my life. I have more compassion, understanding, and forgiveness has become a huge player in my game. I've learned so much about myself and become more and more okay with who I am.
So what did I learn in 2014? Let the list begin:
