Hello, 2019

2018 was a lot of fun. I laughed, traveled, celebrated, and embraced major changes in my life. I accomplished some goals, stepped out on faith, helped others the best I could, and tried my best to be the daughter, sister, friend, co-worker, and partner in the lives of those around me.

I still fell short.

This year I cried, felt frustrated, stagnant, lost, and searched for meaning in work, life, and experiences. This year was hard. For all of my successes, there were times when I locked myself in a room and powered through my low moments. I became a magician and buried myself in work, pouring into everybody from an empty cup. I neglected my website but made major strides in my program of study. I saw parts of the country I had never seen, but also became so stressed my body ached. Life is about balance and I am still working on that.

I am still working on me. 

I am committed to doing better and being better. My goals are my blueprint. I want to be challenged to be everything I know I have the potential to be. I did not necessarily feel motivated or renewed when midnight struck. But I did feel love, I did feel the strength to stop pressuring myself and to let some things unfold naturally. I will survive the consequences and may even learn in the process.

I have the vision.

I want God to move in major ways this year but this does not happen without me playing my role and accepting His will for my life. I pray each person who reads this and relates feels my companionship. No matter where you live, we are in this together. Let’s set our sights further than the next 12 months.

Let’s aim for the stars and keep going.
