I have mixed feelings about this past year. It was a difficult one. I suffered with depressive feelings and thoughts throughout the entirety of 2018, I struggled to find my purpose and decide what makes me happy, and I didn’t meet as many of my goals that I had set for myself as I had planned. But, it was also a memorable year. I started Lang Videography and filmed quite a few weddings that I’m rather proud of. I opened my Etsy shop, Digidanico. Then most importantly, I married the man of my dreams, my rock, my everything, and together we went on an amazing Midwest road trip.
Sometimes it feels like there are so many things in this world that we can't control. Earthquakes, floods, fires, reality shows. But it's important to remember the things that we can--like forgiveness, second chances, fresh starts. Because the one thing that changes the world from a lonely place to a beautiful place is love. Love, in any of it's forms, love gives us hope.
As a new New Year's tradition, I have picked out a word that will shape and lead my life in the year to come. This year I chose the word create because this is a very pivotal time in my life right now where I am building and shaping who I am becoming. I will be graduating college, finding my place in a new job, building a career, making new friends, shaping a new lifestyle for myself, and creating a future.
