i thought i had found my calling. i thought i had found where i had belonged. so i chose the word joy for 2016.
crushing realization that this career path was not for me, i changed the word to hope. my dream was shattered and i was lost.
i really enjoyed the last six months of 2016 working for my Church. the last two weeks of december have been a rollercoaster to put it lightly. they were rough and joyous.
i ask noor to make me a beautiful print for the new year with my new word i had chosen: confident. with the move to los angeles, i really wanted something that i could constantly look at when i was doubting myself and that i could call upon for inspiration.
i am so in love with this print! i love the texture and the color and the font. i especially love the texture. i know that i will look to this many times this year and remind myself to not get intimidated, that i am a good writer, that demi lovato is in fact onto something, and that in order for me to succeed in this business we call show i can't get flustered and drown in self doubt. that won't do.
i really love choosing just a word for the year instead of goals for the year. i find it much more satisfying and i also am more accomplished by the end of the year because i focus on more thing instead of shifting my focus on several goals.
i'm excited for what 2017 will bring!
