It's so hard to believe that 2014 is nearly over. I remember every detail of how 2013 ended like it was yesterday, and the fact that it's been a whole year since then is mind boggling. Today, I want to go over a few things that I've accomplished this year and what made it the best year of my life.
2. This year, I've met so many absolutely amazing people. I mean you, Ashley from Firework People, Jessica from The Pyreflies, Rebecca from The Glitter Diaries, and so many more amazing, inspiring people that encourage me at every step of my blogging journey. I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for the the immense support that just radiates from these ladies, and in 2015, I just want to continue to inspire and be inspired by others because without those people to push us forward, we are nothing.
4. An ability of mine that I've been getting better at over the past year has been sketching. I decided during this summer that I'd like to learn to draw, and I started taking classes. I'm getting so much better, and that's something I'd like to continue to improve in the coming year.
5. In the past year, I've found some pretty amazing bloggers. I hadn't become a serious follower of any blog until this year, and by becoming more active on social media, I've definitely found a few that I really love. Kailey from Mermaidens, Amy from Amy Valentine, and Victoria from In The Frow (I know this looks like I'm just partial to bloggers with colorful hair, but their writing is superb!) are the bloggers that are basically my inspiration. My dream is to become even half the writers these ladies are, and I admire them so much.
7. My relationships with the online community aren't the only ones that have grown in the past year. I'm closer to my friends and family now than ever, and surrounding myself with amazing people is one of the biggest blessings this year has given me.
