I’ve been trying to find the right words to describe 2017 before 2017 even ended. I’ve attempted to make this year-ender a few times, but never having the right words to do so. Even now, I’m not exactly sure what to type next. I’ve accepted 2017 for what it was but it’s still something to admit it to other people. Because while it may seem like I have my shit together, I really don’t. I’ve seen people flourish around me while I do the same things every single day and it was an active choice that I still do. That while 2017 was personally an okay year for me, I didn’t try to do any better. In 2017, I settled.
