New Year, Same Ole Me

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.
