2018 was an alright year. I could say it was mostly bad but overall good.

And I had a very nice break at the end of the year. More refreshed and ready to improve my blog.

Let’s go back and take a look at the good and bad, the achievable and unachievable of my life that I want to share with you.

So grab your mug of coffee or tea and let’s get right into it!

Look, every year has it's up and downs. But 2018 was the year where I decided to change my life. Good karma! #2018 #highlights #yearinreview #highlightsof2018 #bestyear #newyears
