Growing In 2018


Monday, January 15, 2018

Hey guys! It's been a minute since I've sit down to share some thoughts so I thought what better way to catch up with you all than to share some of my personal goals for this year. I also wanted to do a small recap of the past couple months. 

Let's start with the recap. From October- December my life was kind of a blur. October was such a busy month for me since my sister got married! Not only was I busy helping her plan her wedding but we also had some unnecessary drama that happened surrounding the wedding. Not only was I dealing with the wedding drama but I had a falling out with a new friend that I had made at work. It truly hurt my feelings the way things happened because I don't open up to people often and I really just let my guard down. But moving past all the drama... I entered November with the mindset that I was just going to keep my personal life very low-key and enjoy the rest of the year. 

December rolled around and I was feeling extremely defeated. I struggled all year to accept who I was as a woman, sister, daughter and wife. I just felt like a constant failure to all the people around me. I battled depression really hard at the end of the year. I was really dreading this new year for a lot of reasons. One... I was worried that this negative attitude was going to carry over to the new year and just start me out on the wrong note. Two... Nick got a promotion at work so our schedules were seriously about to change. It's so hard to be on opposite shifts, working completely opposite days than your spouse. 

Despite all my fears and doubts.. I ended the year on a positive note, surrounded by my closest family and friends. I vowed that my New Years resolution would include a LOT of personal growth. 

So in 2018 I plan to get my mind and body healthy. Not just for me.. but for my Husband and my family. The goal is to remain positive even when life seems to be throwing you all the curve balls. I hope that I can continue to remind myself each day that tomorrow is a new day with new possibilities. I've never been the one to "go with the flow" but we shall see how this goes. 

My goals for my blog are simple. I want to create more content, share more personal stories and be more active on social media. I know that life doesn't or shouldn't revolve around social media but sometimes your story can really change someone's mood for the day. You truly never know who you are reaching out to when you decide to be vulnerable. 

For all my loyal followers already, be patient with me. I'm very fragile and still growing. For all my new peeps... you will not be disappointed by following me along this wonderful journey called life. 

I love you all! Thanks for continuing your support.
