They may have a point when they said sometimes it is good to let go not just the bad things but also the good things – but nah, I’ll pass on that.

I can’t say goodbye to something that was all remarkable, fulfilling, challenging and memorable all at the same time and my 2017 was basically that. Learned (really) a lot, pushed myself and had amazing experiences along the way. One way or the other these memories will haunt me, not to scare me, but to remind me how I’ve outgrown myself, held on to my principles and to remember who I am.

Here is my 2017 by the numbers:

– 32 years old this year
