Well, here we are in a new year again!
I always love the beginning of a year because it’s a fresh start, a clean slate, and all that. Of course, I believe any time is a good time for a fresh start when we need one. But there’s nothing quite like a new year when it comes to making changes and starting over.
Overall, 2017 was a pretty great year. There were tons of changes, highs, and lows. I didn’t accomplish everything that I wanted to (like publishing my book!) but that’s okay because it was still a good year for personal growth and my mental health.
I have so many ideas running through my head of things I’d like to do in 2018 and I’m so excited to get started! I have so many plans and goals for both the blog and my personal life, and I can’t wait to share them with you.
But for today, I wanted to share with you The Inspiration Lady’s top 10 posts of 2017.
I also want to take this time to thank all of my readers for giving me the opportunity to do this and I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings! <3
