2019 has been a weird year for me, because on the one hand it has had some hard life lessons, horrific personal situations and just a lot of negativity. On the other hand I’ve been successfully running a daily blog, partaking in a podcast and have been making serious adult decisions when it comes to my career path which has led to a new job.

I’ve been there with the nightmares about failing, sweating, shaking and wanting to back out of every single new change but in the end it all works out.
And if it doesn’t work out, well, you’re not dead yet!
