And it begins again…
As I write this, I’m currently flying across the Pacific to one of my favorite places in the world, Bali Indonesia. Returning to a destination like this that made such a deep impact on me has stoked my thoughts and heart of what an incredible year 2017 truly was. In all, I visited a bit over 15 countries and attended about as many workshops, trainings and experience events that one person can physically and emotionally engage with in one year.
As I thought about all the amazing experiences I had, I realize so clearly that it wasn’t the beautiful destinations that impacted me, but the dynamic, loving people I met along the way. Those interactions gave memories I will forever cherish and that helped me grow in ways I never thought possible. To all that I had a chance to interact with over this past year, I must let you know that I am forever grateful. As I keep thinking of each place I had been and experience I had, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for each and every person. It almost feels a bit daunting when I consider what 2018 can and will bring. It seems like changes in my life are all happening so rapidly now that “going with the flow” is the really the only option. Three thoughts keep me grounded - that God is good, that everything truly does happens for a reason, and that all I can to do is to be my best self and step forward in faith.
To all the people who helped along the way in 2017, thank you so much. I will never forget it.
