Things I Hope For You In 2018

In exactly three weeks 2017 will be officially over and 2018 will begin. Wow. I feel like just yesterday I was reflecting on how tough 2016 was and all that it taught me. As I was sitting and trying to write out a similar list of lessons for 2017, all I could think about was what I’d HOPE for 2018 to bring. I wanted to say that this year was tough also, but I couldn’t bring myself to harp on about the reasons why. So instead, here’s a list of things I hope for you and me in 2018.

  • More good days than bad.
  • Thousands of random good thoughts throughout your day that make you smile.
  • A love so good you know that it was ordained by a higher source.
  • Moments where you are reminded of why you were placed on this planet.
  • The amicable end of toxic friendships and the beautiful beginning of new ones.
  • Random acts of kindness that restore your faith in humanity.
  • Opportunities that stretch you for the better.
  • Chances to relax, release, and regroup.
  • An uninterrupted appreciation for life.
  • The release of any harbored anger or resentment.
  • An end to any self-doubt or self-loathing that is preventing you from being your best self.
  • Receiving everything you deserve, no longer settling for “just enough”.
  • Permission to be unapologetically you.
  • Any healing you’ve been patiently waiting to receive.
  • Contentment in times of uncertainty.
  • And lastly, all the H A P P I N E S S you can stand, and THEN some.

 

Love,

 

What do you hope for in 2018? Feel free to comment below and share.

    To stop settling, to find joy and keep is at all costs, to find direction and walk boldly in my purpose, to love and really be loved properly, to let go of the past……to hope again. Thanks for the post wifey.

    More love, more happiness, more peace, more abundance. I just want more of all the good things that are already in my life, and the grace and resilience to handle the less than favorable things that are bound to come along as well.

    My goals for 2018? Hmmmmm…. a tidy house for when people stop by with little notice. While I HATE when people do that, it will help me not be so hateful and frazzled when they do.

    Thank you for all of these things, I happily received them all. And I wish the same for you in 2018.

    This one here though “Permission to be unapologetically you“ is my favorite.

    My goals are to actually tackle more debt so that I can be in a position to buy a house in the very near future. I want to travel more and overall just be overall happy in 2018.
