At the risk of getting a little “woo woo” on you, I’ve always believed in the law of attraction – meaning, what you put out into the world, you get back tenfold. It has been my M.O for as long as I can remember, and whether or not it’s scientifically proven doesn’t change the fact that has always worked for me – my blessings have always been abundant, and I have never for one second taken that for granted.
I may be an eternal optimist, sometimes to a fault, but I’m much happier spreading love, and sipping on my half-full glass whenever and wherever possible. Gratitude, man, I swear it can make or break you – and being able to appreciate the beautiful moments – no matter how big or small – is paramount.
While 2017 had no shortage of hardships for most everyone I know, it was still an incredible year – filled with love, female empowerment, and lots of incredible moments. So please allow me to self-indulge, and reflect back on the last year, both on a personal and on a professional front. Following are a few of my favourites – my best of 2017, if you will…
