While 2018 is heading toward us, I thought about creating a friendly-discussion post where we look back through the good & bad things that happened in 2017. (If it’s related to Fiverr or not.) Just a friendly-forum conversation where we can relax from work to release our untold stories of 2017. Let’s keep it simple yet exciting to read! Maybe these stories will spread positive energy to start 2018 with!
Starting off with me rewinding my 2017, it was a great year overall. 2017 for me was the year that I’ve accomplished many of the things that I wanted to accomplish in the past years. It was the year that I finally had self confidence & made things that I never thought I’ll be able to make.
In 2017, I joined Fiverr after taking a course in the Web Design field that my parents did not agree with. I was still in my school year & they were worried that I won’t be able to get high grades as it was a major one. However, I took the challenge and managed to finish the course & get good grades as well! It was such a great feeling, being confident about your abilities and that you could achieve what you’re looking for if you have the passion to.
In 2017, I met some amazing people! Kind, caring, lovable & generous. I can’t really express how happy i am meeting people like you guys online. Just like @vickiespencer, @eoinfinnegan, @nikavoice, @offlinehelpers @gina_riley2 & the list goes on! Honestly, the thing that I love the most about Fiverr is the forum where we can all communicate together in a friendly nature regardless of age, gender, social class or anything that makes someone feel uncomfortable or different.
In 2017, I finally experienced that great feeling when you earn something you’ve worked hard for. I remember the days when I had to sleep 6 hours only because I was staying all night working on an order that should be delivered in the next hours. All this while having to wake up for school in the early morning. Sometimes, I even had exams! But knowing that I’ll be paid for my efforts later, made me love the challenge I was put in & appreciate it.
To end my 2017 in review, I believe that the choices that I took in 2017 were the ones which made all the difference. And although Fiverr is just a freelancing platform, I do believe that it had a great impact in making 2017 as one of the best years for me personally. Not because I earn money & that’s it, but because the people whom I met & influenced me with their stories which made me work harder on my self to reach that version of me that I’m happy being with. Not to mention, I take Fiverr as a place where I can take a break from school & life problems to focus on the things that I love spending my time at.
This clearly wasn’t a simple “2017 in review” reply at all, but I had to get those words out (I love writing long posts.) So what about you? Tell us about your 2017 In review! I would love to read yours as well.
