2018 has been one of the hardest years for me, personally. Just when I thought I’d done all the growing I needed to do previously, something comes out of the woodwork which I need to deal with and learn from. That’s life…

I found 2018 particularly difficult because it was the year of bubble bursting, awakening and reality checking. I had spent years of my life planning or hoping for stuff that weren’t even a reality and looking back, never would be. It’s hard when you’ve put your all into something only to step back and see you’ve achieved nothing this whole time.

So, I guess the message is: it’s great to dream big and have high hopes, but also don’t expect anything from them. Discern between a pipe dream and an achievable goal. That way, you won’t be disappointed.
