We are officially New Year status! 2019 has officially begun, and with it, all types of possibilities are ahead. It has been said that how you bring in the New Year is the foundation of how your year will go. If that is indeed the case, then 2019 is going to be full of promise—for all of us.
I didn’t have any immediate NYE plans, but made a last minute decision to spend the final two days of 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. I wanted spend time with a special someone who has showed up for me in so many ways—it was my time to return the favor (hi, Will!).
During this quick trip, I learned more about myself and who I am growing into. No longer defined by other people’s version of success, I am now on a quest to write my own definition of it for myself. In mostly quiet, stolen moments of my trek, I felt overwhelmed with the options and possibilities that are open to me. It is a blessing to be able to have a choice of who you want to be, where you want to be, what you want to do—and do it freely.
What is a Glow Girl?
With this epiphany, I have titled 2019 as the year of the Glow Girl—she shines no matter where she goes, and she spreads her light to others, never shrinking down to make others feel comfortable. A Glow Girl also doesn’t dim the brightness of others, for she is an encourager, a cheerleader, and someone who helps people be their best selves, even when they can’t or won’t see it.
I have started my new journal after re-reading last year’s entries, and I plan on writing in it each day of 2019. This way I can chart my progress (or lack thereof), peaks, valleys, thoughts, feelings, etc.
I challenge you to also do the same.

Now that 2019 is here, let’s all work to do the work it takes to simply be a good human being. Spend the next 364 days living, loving, sharing, communicating, and being as authentic as you can be. No more shrinking violet—no more suppressing—no more internalizing. A true Glow Girl emits light even when it is hard to do so.
