What is up everyone?!
It’s hard to believe that 2017 is coming to a close. For many people I know, this was a tough year. This time of year I like to reflect on the positive and the negative moments that happened. For me, there was heartbreak, loss, joy, and much growth. I learned to stop asking why I got this amazing life, and have learned to accept it. The positive moments are ones to cherish, but the negative one’s I’ve come to value because they have helped me grow.
I hope everyone reading this comes to find some type of value in their negative moments while looking back, even when life gets hard, painful, or unfair.
As we close this year of weekly roundups, I want to share some of the top stories we’ve had along the way – with some great ones from this week.
Are you glad to see 2017 go? Let me know and see you next year!
