A fresh start.
A clean slate.
A day for resolutions, and looking back on the past year.
My year had some high points and some VERY low points.
2013 was a very hard year for me. I admitted to not wanting to be pregnant and to needing help mentally after giving birth, neither of which were easy to write out and share.
I had a hard time writing on my blog the past year due to repressing my true feelings for fear of what my readers would think. When I actually spoke about my issues, I lost 2 followers. Did I care? I tried not to, but I did. It is hurtful to think that how I felt affected them so much that they know longer wanted to read what I have to write. Am I better off with out them? I think so. I should be able to write out my true feelings and not have fear of backlash. This is my life, not anyone else's, and I just wanted to put it out there that life isn't always sunshine and roses.
2013 was also great to me. My kids are thriving in Lubbock and God blessed us with an addition to our family. With all my unhappiness about being pregnant and overly worrying about Brayden no longer being the baby, Paisley has truly added to our lives in ways I couldn't imagine. I will save that for another post though. She was definitely the HIGH for 2013.
My resolutions for 2014 are going to be simple so hopefully I can accomplish them. I am not good at resolutions, so I will just call them goals for the upcoming year.
- Pay down some of our debt
- Build up our savings account
- Write more
- Play and laugh more with my kids
- Find a church home
What are some of your resolutions?
Did you keep last years?
Are you ready for a new year? I sure am!
Bring on 2014!!!
Wishing you all health, wealth, and happiness.
