    Amen. There are going to be many bad years, but, we have to try to find some sunshine among the clouds!

    Love your perspective! I always find that I look back on the bad year(s) in my life and remember how strong they made me. How much growth I had from it. And of course all the good memories sprinkled in.

    We cannot appreciate the good things in our life without the bad. What doesn’t kill you truly makes you stronger. Cheers to a wonderful holiday season and a 2020 with way more good than bad!

    Hey Chelsea,

    I love every word of this post. It’s so important to try and remember the good times, even the bad times outweighed them. This year has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me but it’s also been a year full of discovery and realisation which I know will stand me in great stead for a wonderful 2020. Sending Love, Alicia x

    Once again, you brilliantly point us to the positive while not ignoring or brushing aside very real pain. Thank you for this reminder, as I’ve struggled with painful guilt over my own poor choices. Recognizing the positive of the year doesn’t negate or ignore the things (bad) choices I made (and thankfully learned from)

    Exactly! Whatever choices you made, I’m sorry they brought you pain, but I hope you leave any guilt in last year. It’s a new season, friend. New mercies.

    I feel this. We had a shit year. We were stressed for 12 months straight at work, we lost our dog to a freak infection, ppd set in HARD after we Brough M home… It was/is a rough 2019.
    BUT we also took some trips and spent time with family and friends and we brought Bristol and Maddie home. So I just can’t write off the whole year.
    Excellent reminder, friend!
