2017 was definitely a difficult year for me, but it was also a good one when I was able to come back full time to HOL. I only look for 2018 to keep getting better. Though I continued to struggle with things through much of 2017, during the Winter Solstice, I did a candle burning ceremony to prepare myself for the year ahead. I burned away old fears and upcoming worries and so far 2018 has not felt like having a huge weight on my shoulders.
I can't say there is much that I have planned to look forward to, but given everything that happened last year, not only with me personally, but to the area I live, I want to be able to use 2018 as a way to give. I think that will be my goal for this year, giving back. I think giving back is not just a way of helping others but it is also a way of saying that I am grateful for what I have and that I want to share what I can give to others because of it.
So that will be my goal for 2018. Other than that, I am hoping to do some traveling later on and meet some of my new friends.
