Valarsen Posted January 3, 2017 Share Posted January 3, 2017 Hello new friends! I know many agree that last year was a tough one. Personally, I think it was one of the hardest years of my entire life: I ended a three year relationship with a man I thought I would marry, because I had lost myself. My Dad, and best friend, moved across the world to Australia to start a new life with his wife. And, of course, my quarter life crisis hit full effect. I am still dragging to pick up all the pieces I left behind, still searching for myself and crying most nights over the love I lost. But, this year for New Years I didn't go to a club or a house and get wasted only to wake to a pounding headache, instead I enjoyed alone time journaling, meditating, and setting goals for the next year. Through this process I decided that this year I am committing to the word JOY. For so many years the voice in my head has been loud. And there, I have been battling myself: telling myself I'm not good enough, or that I cannot complete my goals. But, if there's one thing I learned through the challenge of 2016 it's that the voice in my head can be silenced. So, this year I will reach JOY. I will finally come to a place where I feel complete and that I can look myself in the eye, tell myself I'm beautiful and believe it. This starts here. This starts with my very first Whole 30. Something that for years I've been intrigued by, but have always convinced myself I couldn't do. So, I'm reaching out to make new friends, people who can remind me along the way that I CAN do this, people who along the way I can tell that they are beautiful. what brought you here?
