The year is fastly closing in on me. When this happens I seem to always reflect on things that happened in my life.
This was a big year for the Mr and I. We traveled a lot. We hit a major milestone of being 1 year married. Moving into a house, made new friends and didn’t attempt to murder each other!
Our relationship continues to blossom. We’ve gone through career changes, international traveling, working real jobs together, laughing a lot and just expanding in every way we can.
I have yet to make a better decision in my life. Marrying him. He’s the best thing that ever happened to me.
I am grateful that I have many more years to continue to be with him and grow! What a journey we get!
Continuing to look at the past year, we have overcome some obstacles. I had my 1st miscarriage. An unexpected one at that. Though we didn’t have a pregnancy plan, and still don’t, it was something that changed both of us. I don’t look back on the trials I have experienced and feel sorry for myself. I continue to grow and learn from each experience. I am optimistic about our future and hope I can stay this way!
My taste in whats important and good has drastically changed. I wish I had my taste now a year ago. Oh how I regret those stupid shoes and ugly dress…What was I thinking?
We have over come some family trials, learning how to become a unit instead of an extension of someone else’s. Learning how to become independent and look towards the future with our own desires and aspirations and not those of our elders and family members. I am a huge advocate of self reliance. I feel that you truly cannot experience true happiness unless it has been earned on your own. Having others constantly take care of you and enable your defaults stops progression. You can only go so far, and it’s not that far.
I want to be an example to my children, as they see how I strive and work towards my dreams and aspirations. I do not want them to be wusses. I feel I am strong, I am capable of so much, sometimes I want to do so much I can’t figure out how to do one simple thing because my eye is on 1000 prizes.
As this new year approaches, I do not have a plan. I don’t have a goal or a resolution. I have a desire. I desire to be better with money (crap. that means I either need to make more, or spend less….) I desire to be more positive. I hope to always be a better friend and helpmate to not only my husband but to those I consider my army. I have a few of them. But I love them like crazy!
I want to take more time and commit myself to doing the things that make me happy and make me better. Learning to sew is top on there! Using my inspirations for crafts and design and not waste the time I have on unimportant things.
It seems every year goes by faster and faster. Time seems to speed up as we get older and we end up with regrets or wishes. Not me. I don’t have time for that! I am too busy changing my world!
