2017 In Review

I'm currently gorging down a pack of christmas m&ms, admiring my new salt lamp and wondering where in the world this year went. 

As quickly as it passed, one of my favorite things about the end of year is looking back & looking ahead to the new year. 

At the end of last year I did a post on 16 things I learned, & so I'm continuing the tradition with 17 things, because 2017. Get it? I'm, extremely creative, I know.

1. Pizza & wine is a perfectly acceptable meal.

2. Good friendships change everything.

3. There is no logic when it comes to trump supporters & we should all just stop trying to understand.(i went THERE)

4. Sometimes all you need is the comfort of home.

5. There is no such thing as a straight line when it comes to mental health. Your good days will be overwhelmingly beautiful and the bad days overwhelmingly painful. It's okay. 

6. You can't play it safe.

7. You also can't run from who you are.

8. Yes, forgoing that near-daily starbucks really will save you dough, hard as it is.

9. Women are magical. This was definitely not new information for me, but it became increasingly unmistakable with things like the women's march and the celebration of wonderful women like mary tyler moore & carrie fisher. The spark we have in ourselves & each other is undeniable. 

10. We will no longer be silenced. 2017 became the year of the silence breakers, & I am forever in awe of the strength of the people, famous or not, who have ever come forward. They can't break you.

11. Vegging out for a day doesn't make you a bad person.

12. I wasted six years of my prime on pretty little liars. go figure. 

13. Don't waste your energy on people who don't give you any effort. 

14. Walking around target alone is its own form of therapy. 

15. You get out what you put in.

16. Just when you thought taylor swift couldn't outdo herself AGAIN....

17. Nobody truly knows what the heck they're doing .We're all just wandering around trying to get it right. Take comfort in that.

Tell me what you learned!
