Hello, 2018.

« il faut laisser aller le monde comme il va. » // we must let the world go as it is

I hope in the next year, love finds you. I hope your days are filled with happiness and light, that you’d let go of people who are toxic in your life, that you’d take better care of yourself. I hope in the next year, you’d be kinder to yourself too, because you are a work in progress. All of us are just trying our best here, really. And I hope you’d take braver steps, that you will no longer give in to the loud voices in your head, that your happiness won’t rely on things or people, but mostly on yourself. I hope you can find the balance between being generous, yet not so much that people would take advantage of you. And I hope that the remnants of 2017 – good and bad – will wash over you, as you enter the new year all clean.

Lots of love, Cara

    Just the words I needed to hear (or read) right now. Thank you for this, Cara. May your 2018 be filled with love and light.

    It’s nice to see you update your site again. 🙂 I wish all the same things you just said for you as well, because you’re right, we’re all just trying our best here. It’s good to start 2018 right, but it’s better to see 12 months later that we’ve made the most out of it. 🙂

    Happy new year!

    Hey Cara, this is so off topic but it sounds like something you’d read in a Taylor Swift booklet. Happy new year! <3

      I love that you said that because this is honestly inspired by Taylor’s Clean speech. <3
