I don’t make New Years resolutions…. so you won’t find one here. With that said however, I’d like to take a moment to re-cap 2013, and what I hope 2014 will bring.
2013 was a roller-coaster of emotion. I’m not entirely sure how I made it to today in one piece, but here I am, whole and I like to think a better person for the trials and tribulations this year has put me through.
I am still with my amazing love, this was a good year for us, and I am so blessed to have him in my life. He’s been there for me through all the tears, through all the late night giggles, the stress of starting a new job, the tears from leaving my old one, the panic attacks and the great successes and strides I have taken this year. Through it all he has been right by my side, and for that I am truly blessed.
I’ve lost 10 lbs all by myself ,though I’ve gained and lost the same 10 lbs over and over, I’m currently sitting at a loss and couldn’t be happier. I’ve been making small changes bit by bit to become healthier in preparation for the weight-loss clinic and so far so good! I won’t jump straight into going to the gym, or promise you that I will never eat pizza again. I won’t tell you that this time next year I’ll be at my goal weight and everything will be peachy. I will say however that I will be closer to my goal weight 🙂 And I’ll continue to work towards it.
I started a new job, and am still going through the process of it hopefully becoming full-time. *Fingers crossed*, I absolutely adore my job and my bosses and my team lead 🙂 I couldn’t imagine a role better suited for me. I find myself walking more (the building is HUGE) and my stress load is so much less I still can’t get over it.
I’m getting better at saying NO, and at weeding bad friends out of my life. I’m still learning, though I’m much further along then I was, that it doesn’t make me a horrible person to say NO or to need distance from toxic people, no matter how badly the toxic people try to make me feel. I’m finding my voice, and my inner strength and I’m just not putting up with bullshit. It’s kind of nice.
I hope this blog finds you and yours in good health and ready to conquer 2014. It’s time to grab that bull by the horns and face it head first. Time doesn’t wait for anyone. Make the most of this next year, and enjoy all the small moments that make life great. The warmth that comes from snuggling, the feel of your love’s hand in yours, a full belly, the taste of hot chocolate rolling over your tongue, a child’s laugh, a kind smile, a stranger holding the door open for you… All these moments and a million more just like it, make life what it is. Focus on that and have a great 2014!
I’m happy. 2013 is leaving me happy, healthy, and in love…. Seriously who could ask for anything more. <3
