Romee Strijd cut down on travelling and work over the last year to focus on her family.
The Dutch model, 24, shared her thoughts as she reflected on 2019 in a candid Instagram post, and explained that she and husband Laurens van Leeuwen had made a choice to spend more time together at their home in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
"Since it’s the last day of the year I wanted to share a little thought, 2019 has been a different year for me than the years before. This year I’ve tried to not focus to much on achievements, and just work related things, for me I really tried to find my balance," Romee wrote, adding that she found it "so much harder" to get that work-life balance right.
"We travelled way less, enjoyed our home in Amsterdam and tried to focus on things that make us happy, like family and friends but also doing my work since we love that aswell but just in a different ratio," the Victoria's Secret Angel continued.
She then urged her followers to stop focusing on results, and realise "life is not about work, the way you look, or what you achieve."
Romee, who has walked for the likes of Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton and Prada, then thanked her fans for supporting her over the last 12 months.
"Enjoy life, have a laugh but also accept down moments because also those moments are part of life and just do what’s good for you," she concluded. "Cheers to 2020!!!! and i’m so grateful to share our journey with you guys, here and on Youtube! LOTS OF LOVE."
