Well as it is New Years Eve, I thought a post about my 2014 and saying farewell to it was in order.
2013…you were not the year I was expecting but I think you were the year that I needed to put me on the path to becoming the best version of myself I can be in 2014 and onward. I know that there will be challenges in this upcoming year but I intend to overcome them and make the most of it. Just want to say that I love all my friends and family, so glad I get to spend each year with you!
This was my Facebook status from last New Years Day. Every year, I try to write something reflective about the last year and make some kind of statement for what I believe the New Year will be. At the time I wrote this, I had no idea that in a few months I would be making the decision to move to the UK. I was simply making a conscious decision to just be happy with my life as it was and be a better person for that.
The truth is that 2014 was also not the year that I expected. I am not sure what what kind of year it was, there were plenty of challenges and plenty of changes. I think I did grow quite a bit this year, and made some good progress in becoming a better version of me. No matter what we should always keep growing, and I believe we do every year. Even if it is a tiny change, and even if there are set backs, always keep growing.
But I am really not sad to see 2014 go. Sure, I will treasure the special memories I have had, like my fabulous time in Vegas with my ladies or my family vacation in Mazatlan and as well, appreciate the big changes and decisions I made, like deciding to move home. Now I know you should never wish time away but I really feel that 2014 was simply a transition year for me, and I am MORE then ready to greet 2015.
This year I think my status will be simple,
Feeling ready to say goodbye to 2014. Welcoming all that 2015 will bring me with open arms. As always, I am thankful for another year with my loved ones and feel blessed with their love and support. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year everyone. I hope this year is all that you want it to be and lets you live, or brings you closer to, your something more than planned.
