Reflections

2019 is a year I’ll remember forever.

My divorce was finalized.
I was challenged in many areas.
I experienced so much and made many fun and happy memories.
I fell in love so deeply this year.
I laughed more this year than I’ve ever laughed in my entire life.

2019 was the year that I felt most authentically myself. The first year that I’ve felt the most secure in who I am and where I’m at — which has come from owning my story and not letting it own me.

This past year I found myself frequently, and increasingly, growing in thankfulness that what’s ahead is always more than what’s behind⁣ me – which, for me, is huge.

There were moments in the past few years when I thought that what I was experiencing was the best that life could ever get. I’m so glad I was wrong. Now life just keeps getting better and better and it’s more than I could ever hope or imagine.

If someone would have told me when I was 15 what the next decade would have looked like, I wouldn’t have believed them and honestly, would have pleaded for none of it. But now, I’m thankful for it all. I’ve never felt so sure of 25 year old me and I don’t think I’d feel this way if it wasn’t for the last half of this decade.

I can’t wait to see what the next decade holds — for you and for me. Leave me a comment below to tell me what you’re most looking forward to this year and what your ultimate hope is for this next decade. I’d love to hear from you!

Happy New Year!

Love,

mikayla

  1. Do you have any advice for getting through a divorce? I’m in the very beginning stages of it and am struggling. I have hope for the new year and decade, though!
