I was going through my journal and reflecting on this past year. At the beginning of the year I was having a hard time with my career. I was in a job I wasn't aligned with and I was too fearful to make a change. Luckily I was helping a friend build a nonprofit that I loved. Still, I was lost and confused. It was January and I remember sitting in the passenger seat with my best friend writing in silence for hours as we moved her life to Denver. I wrote that "I would like my circle of friendship to expand. I want to befriend people doing amazing things for this world while doing what they love. People embracing their individuality and sharing their gifts with the world. I would love to date in a group of friends and travel with a crew and have masterminds. I would love to meet new people who encourage me to go after my dreams with confidence. I want to promote self love and help women gain confidence. To share my love of writing. Inspire and motivate and coach." In January I would have NEVER guessed that I would quit my job and join a mastermind from a guy I met in India and another in the same mastermind at Forbes 30 under 30, start traveling the world with them, and start a relationship with one of them. AND most importantly, start a coaching business to help women. To find a group of friends who are all sharing their talents with the world building businesses and encouraging each other in their journeys. This year was one of the hardest I've ever had emotionally but also the best I've ever had. It was fucking uncomfortable. I packed my life and became nomadic. In January I vowed that this would be the year that I did everything I've ever wanted. And by God I did 95% of everything I wanted which is pretty damn close. Cheers 2018. Uncomfortable yet transformational.
