Reflections - Growing into a Better Human

I know I'm a few weeks late, Fam. It's been a hectic start of the New Year and I wanted to be make sure this post expressed the chaos but appreciation I felt while reflecting on this past year.

Now, 2017 was brutal, I've lost some friends, some feelings, and plenty of sleep. But in the process, I found my voice, my motivation, and plenty of goals. I've survived my first semester of Law School, maintained academic standing (that sounds a lot easier than it is to accomplish!!), got my children through another year of life fully intact (again, a lot harder than it sounds๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ), and my boo still loves me. I'd say that it's been a pretty good year.

I've had moments I let my anger and pettiness get the best of me and moments where letting my compassion and empathy shine through made it better for everyone. Both instances were justified and useful in their respective circumstances - I learned something. Through it all, I grew and continue to grow into a person I am proud to know.

You know the saying, "I am only human", well it speaks to me. It's only human to mess up, to get cocky, to be selfish. But it's also human to learn from those mistakes, be humble, and considerate of others. Basically being human is a never ending struggle of balance to be your best self. I think I'm growing into a pretty decent human being.

So Fam, it's never too late to grow into a pretty decent human being or aspire to to be an awesome human being! Have you reflected on your growth this past year? Are you happy with the person you are becoming?
