In an era where Instagram has invaded our lives and turned seemingly ordinary people into celebrities, we find ourselves tuning in to the insta-feeds of these familiar strangers and in many ways, aspire to be them. By Damelza Harris-Olsen

😌 Reflecting on the year and all the beauty it has brought amidst the tough moments. 2017 wasn't easy both at work and in life. Buried myself in work and a ton of play knowing I had to eventually slow down & succumb to fertility treatments. I allowed my ambitions & the want for a baby to consume me and somehow lost myself along the way. But by God's grace I was granted my heart's desire and given a renewed sense of purpose. Along with it came an undeserving yet overwhelming amount of love. With that I started loving myself, my baby, and all the people around me. They say becoming a mom is life-changing; this truly is a pivotal moment in my life. I know that 2018 is not going to be without its challenges, but I feel like I'm in a better place and capacity to take on what is coming my way. And if there's anything I've learnt, it's that we all have an inner strength to draw from when the going gets tough. We just need to love ourselves to do so.

Sometimes I look back and am amazed at how fast time flies – never thought I'd arrive at being in my 30s but here I am well on my way. I still feel like a child at times and there is so much I still don't know, but I've realized that the only way to live a fulfilled life is to embrace all of who I am at this point in time and make the most with what I have right now – and that's the only way I know I can make a difference, however small, in this world.
