It has been a while since I last updated the masses on the happenings in my world, so what better time than the beginning of a new year. Happy 2016, everyone!
I am always happy to see a New Year come bursting forth with the fireworks, ball drops, and drunken people into the streets; however, this year, I was PUMPED! 2015 started out pretty rough as far as dealing with some sickness and work stress, but it took a turn, and ended really well.
I got a new job, one that I have been wanting for a while, it happened at just the right time. I am loving my new job, and so blessed to have it. I feel like a completely different person, full of life and happiness. I do not dread getting up and going to work. I enjoy getting dressed and seeing what my day will hold for me. I am happy to have found a place and a job that allows me the freedom of doing what I love, and a company that I feel is just as amazing as the job itself. I am really blessed.
The BF and I , (more like the BF, and I help), took the adventure of getting a puppy in January of 2015, and she is now a year old. Her name is Maci, and anyone that knows me well, knows she is the love of my life. She is a furball of happiness and surprises every day. She makes me world a happy place, and reminds me that there is always happiness in the simple things. I could ramble about her all day and all night, because I love her so much, but I will spare you and just leave you with the cutest photo of her EVER!
See what I mean?! Adorable and fluffy and pure love.
Two of my cousins had babies in 2015, both boys, and a month a half a part. I have enjoyed watching the two boys grow. I cannot wait until they are older and actually causing mischief together. I’m sure they will be raising all kinds of hell in their future. I will enjoy all of it, and their parents’ faces when the stories come out!
I also completed three 5K’s in 2015. I had a goal of completing a 5K when I was 30. I didn’t meet that goal, but I did complete three of them in my 32nd year, and I am completely okay with that. I feel like this past year has really allowed me to get to know myself. I feel like with everything that has been going on over the past few years, I have lost a bit of myself and my way.
In 2015, I found myself, and was reminded of who and what I am. I am happy with me, work in progress that I am. I have learned some valuable lessons in life and in love. I am so very lucky to have found a man that I am completely head over heels for, and that has shown me what it’s like to “grow up”. I know this sounds crazy, but everyone has parts of their life they are not proud of, and they need to work on. I am okay with admitting my problem areas for the first time in a long time, and I am working on them. Slow and steady wins the race.
The year of 2015 was a recovery and rediscovering period for me, and 2016 will be the regrowth year. I am ready! I have decided to focus on my faith, finances, and my relationships. This really is the year of growth and regrowth for me. I hope this year is a year of joy and blessings for all of you, as well!
