Happy New Year!

2014 welcome, 2013 goodbye!

I hope 2014 will be filled with as much love and happiness as 2013. May our friendships stay strong and our families stay healthy. May we all continue to grow and become better people than we have been and any cracked bits of us heal.

Last year recap:

I helped friends through some rough times and they helped me as I struggled heavily to find my personal identity. I struggled to find a balance between friend time, me time, school and making personal progress. I accepted that I wanted to try living with less and in a smaller space. I totaled a car and survived with very minimal damage and replaced it with my first “fun” car instead of a practical car. I adopted one more cat, fell in love with a man and watched my godson grow a year older. I grieved for a friend who had to make a hard personal choice involving children and her future. I celebrated my younger brother becoming an adult when he got an internship in Cleveland Ohio and had one week to figure out how to put his college classes on hold here and move up there. I am so proud of his bravery and success. My older brother continues to stand strong in his marriage and both he and his wife have balanced careers with their love for each other. My mother continues to create amazing photos and my father is steadfast in his hard work both in his job and at the house. My grandfather supports us all with his love and is there for any advice we may have needed in this last year. I saw my grandmother (mom’s side) and was pleased to catch her in decent health. I started working out consistently and have been doing well for the most part. I kept fake nails looking nice.

This coming year

I will continue to downsize and move into my trailer. I will continue to teach and love my job. I will keep this blog up and running. I will keep myself moving and working out. I will work on my diet a bit more. -Those are my goals. I won’t call them new years resolutions because they are not such a light thing. These were goals listed mid year last year and if I stay on track I will be changing my life and trying to focus on finding what truly makes me happy.

I hope everyone is embracing the new year with open arms and finding their happiness!
