2015 has flown by way to fast. I would have never known where I would be last year, at this time. I had no idea what 2015 would have in store for me and sometimes I wish it would have just flown by faster than it did.
In 2014 I was working at a job I liked but did not love. I was not prepared for the loss that 2015 would bring by losing my brother in law. I was not prepared for the health issues my parents have had over this past year. Dad had a quad-bypass and hip surgery and Mom had a stroke. I would have never imagined how much of a struggle we would have trying to expand our family by having a child.
This past summer I switched to a different department at work. I was scared and worried about how the people would take me and perceive me. I would have never guessed how well I would fit in with everyone. I lost a few friends when switching jobs but I gained a ton more and they mean so much to me. I couldn't imagine my life without them.
Christmas used to be my favorite holiday. With all of the loss over the past few years, I would be completely happy to skip Christmas but I know I enjoyed it as a kid. I enjoyed it up until Dax died. I have learned over the years how much giving is better than receiving. I have learned how to be a better person and to not expect so much from others.
We don't always have the most but I am able to be thankful for what I do have. I have a roof over my head, food in my house, clothes in my closest and a husband who loves me. I have that and so much more to be happy and blessed for.
I have no idea on what 2016 will bring. I am hoping it is a good year and not so much as an emotional roller coaster. I can never complain to much as I am alive and breathing. I am happy with what I have and I know if it is meant to be, it will. I have to cherish all the moment and time I have and not stress it all away!
Let me know what are you looking forward to in 2016 below!
