I was looking through my blog post from last year and saw that I did a post with my hopes for 2017. While I was reading, I realized that a lot of the hopes that I had for my life didn't come true. That's okay. I know that I have had an awesome year that has been full of lessons. Listed below are the hopes that I had for this year and what came of them.
My 1st hope for 2017: is that I focus on myself this year. My happiness will be placed first. If it doesn't make me happy or help myself grow, I am not going to focus on it.This first hope did not exactly work out. At the beginning of the year, I was focused on myself then I got hurt and started placing other things in front of myself.
My 2nd hope for 2017: grow more into God's word. I will spend more time praying and reading God's word more. I will be spending more time with Him and just grow more in my faith.This hope kinda came true. I did grow into God's word this year. There was a point in this year where I did blame him and didn't trust him but during that time was when I needed him the most.
My 3rd hope for 2017: lose weight and get healthier. I hope that by the end of this year, I am healthier and I lose weight. It isn't going to be easy but I am determined.This did not happen but it will in 2018. This is my main goal the next year.
My 4th hope for 2017: no more temporary people. Don't be afraid of cutting people off that aren't good for you. I will not focus on people that are going to be temporary. And if I have people in my life that become toxic, I will cut them off.Yep. This one did not work out. I had a lot of temporary people come into my life. Either for good or bad. I got hurt a lot by these temporary people.
My 5th hope for 2017: chase your dreams, cause if you never try you never know. I will chase my dream as far as I can. I will try things that I have never tried before. I may fail but it is worth trying.This one did come true. I chased my dreams this year. I tried new things that I never had done before. I became a better and different person from last year. This is the hope that I hoped would have happened.
These are some more hopes that I had for 2017:
- fresh opportunities
- new experiences
- amazing friendships
- peace and relaxation
- unbelievable growth
- me closer to God and able to share His love with other people
These last hopes did come true mostly. Looking back to the beginning of the year, I have had some amazing opportunities and experiences. I look forward to sharing them in my post that is scheduled for the 31st of this month.
I hope you all have had a Merry Christmas and I look forward to talking to y'all in my next blog post.
