I just finished reading my last post of 2014. It was a reflection on what I learned throughout the year. It was a good reminder of where I was and what I had going on and that was good to read.
I didn’t make an end of the year post for 2015 though. 2015 spoke for itself in my life. It was a year of change and adjustment for me.
In case you’re new to me or this blog, these are the major life events that I had in 2015
- Quit my job of 9 years that I both loved and hated
- Moved from West Michigan to Chicago
- Got married (to the love of my love – I can hear Erykah singing now)
- Had a baby at 40!
- Started my journey back to writing
- Became a Stay At Home Mom (what a surprise)
After all of that change, the only thing that I needed to do at the end of the year was to sit down. I just enjoyed my self with my hubby and baby (my son was with his father). I really just marveled at my life. I feel blessed and I’m thankful for that.
Going into this new year, I didn’t make any resolutions. I didn’t write out any specific goals for the year (I already had those). I didn’t start a new diet. I didn’t start a new exercise plan.
What I realized though is that I don’t need to be a new me in this new year. I’ve been a pretty good me for a long time. While my circumstances have changed – a lot – my mind, heart and soul are still me through and through. That’s a great thing because I spent many years trying to be the best me that I could be. I’ll just keep on doing that.
