Five months in everybody! Just yesterday it feels like we were turning up and screaming "Happy New Year!" as the ball dropped. It's hard to believe that May has come and gone. We endured April showers, we saw a couple of May flowers, and we are headed into the official summer months! Thank God for all that has happened in 2018 thus far. I'm going to take a moment now to recap the month of May and all of the joys and pains that came with it. What I can say about this month is that it challenged me. Although my stress levels were high, I faced life head on and conquered all that was thrown at me. I challenged myself to smile more and to care a little less about things that weren't working in my favor. I challenged myself to be less self conscious and more accepting of my flaws. I challenged myself to practice mindfulness and to be happier all around.
