At the end of each year I find myself anticipating the start of a new, different, exciting year. I don’t often look at the past 365 days to really appreciate all that I have done and learned and accomplished. This year that is exactly what I am doing. 2017 was the year of my quarter life crisis and honestly one of the most interesting years of my life. My crisis came, not in the form of a major breakdown or freak out but of massive introspection and growth.
I started the year in a tough spot but with those I love. I started this blog which has forced me to commit consistently to something, it has rejuvenated me creatively, and it holds a piece of me I am extremely proud of. I moved, I catered, I created business plans and recipes, I planned and spoke at my first event! I started my business softly. I am, as of January 1st 2018, officially open for business as a Holistic Health Coach focusing on stress management and dietary issues, as well as, a meal prep cook! (tell all friends and family and contact me yourself this is a shameless plug :))
I also closed a few chapters in my life. I closed two years of nonstop weddings. I distanced myself from toxic relationships. I stopped worrying so much about what others were doing and thinking and put those who I value and who value me above all else. This year has set the stage for 2018. The Bold Year.
The year of the Paleo/Whole30 based lifestyle thanks to 2017’s trials. The year I put my thoughts and practices into action and really get my business moving. Finally, the year I take more chances and do the things I have always wanted to but may have been to nervous to do in the past. So stayed tuned people things are just getting interesting.
Finally, the structure of my blog will stay the same but with a few changes. Instead of chronicling different diets with an additional food for thought, I am going to be creating meals based on the people in my life. Trying out or creating new recipes, giving some back story, and connecting with those around me in the best way, over a good meal.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are as excited for 2018 as I am. I’ll see you in the new year!
