I've been extremely blessed this year with new friendships and memories that i won't forget, the people who surround me push me to better myself every single day. 2019 was a major struggle for me mentally and physically. But here I am at the end of it all knowing that what the future holds for me is good and I cannot ask for anything more. To anyone out there struggling just like I did, just know that you can do it. You can do anything you put your mind to if you want it bad enough, put in the time and effort to love yourself and better yourself. Set goals and don't stop until you achieve them. This year was a HUGE opportunity to grow who I am as a person. I take a step back and look what I want for me and my future. All the good and all the bad has lead me to where I am today and I can finially say I am proud of who I have become. To an amazing new year, to new friendships, to family and current friends. For the good and bad, I thank you and wish you all of the best in the start of this new decade. I love you all it's been a REAL year ❤️
