While I was curating my favorite photos from last year I felt sadness. This was a surprise reaction to memories that I positively cherish. 2017 was a chaotic year for me — a lot of transition in both my professional and private life amidst so many different places I found myself. Regardless these photos are proof to myself that I really thrived amidst that chaos. I think that part of the sadness I feel looking through these memories is the fear of not thriving in 2018. In such a way memories of the past can drive us always forward if we allow them.
