Dear 2018

Dear 2018,

2017 was intense.

From six months of being bed ridden (due to serious back flare) and recurrent shoulder subluxations, to major dietary restrictions (to heal SIBO) and weight fluctuation, to debilitating pain and cysts in my body (I’ve lost count of the number of tests, scans and treatment phases I went through in total), 2017 forced me to look at my body with even more compassion and love. There’s no doubt that I’ve come a long way in terms of acceptance and creating a lifestyle that honours my body but I can sense that 2018 will need me to up my game.

2017 gave me the opportunity to share my creative passion with others and encourage them to express themselves through creative work. I came across like-minded people who were also on a personal journey of growth and healing. 2017 allowed me to use my strengths and to be of service to those in need.

The second half showed me once again that while there are things out there I have absolutely no control over, I do have control over how I respond to my experience and how I co-create with life.

Despite feeling tremendously weak physically, I have felt the strongest both mentally and emotionally. Thank you,2017, for all the blessings and lessons. Thank you for showing me who I can truly count on.

2018, I am ready for you.

Please let the good days be great and the not-so-good ones okay. Please let the upcoming transition be easy on my mind and body. Remind me to stand in my truth and show up for myself. Please be abundant in every way possible. Let me continue to find love, support and guidance at the right time and place, and, let me remember that the light in me always knows what to do next.

Thank you,

Manasi D
