New year new me .. well not really

As the year comes to a close I can’t help but to reflect on 2017. Without a doubt it was TOUGH AF – well unless you were Cardi B. From the Trump election to the gun violence, terrorist attacks and natural disasters – it was a roller coaster ride. To be honest, love, God and having tons of faith got me through this year.

On a professional note this year brought a lot of growth. I focused on building my network and it really paid off. I now have what I call “my front row” which consist of senior managers that are supportive of my career. These are my go-to people that I can turn to for professional advice.

It’s such a relief to close this chapter and start the year fresh. I look forward to making new memories, crossing things off my bucket list and remaining true to myself. Admittedly, I dislike new year resolutions. During this time of year most people make unrealistic resolutions without putting in the work. It takes more than one year to completely change your life. Of course you will see gradual change but don’t place hard expectations on yourself. Enjoy the journey but keep your eyes on the destination.
