This past year has been full of adventures. A long distance move, switched work centers with various new trainings, reconnecting with old friends, letting go of those holding me back, and making memories to last a lifetime. I've been looking back and reconsidering everything I've done.
Even though gas prices have dipped below $2 a gallon here, I'm desirous of getting a motorcycle in the next few months.
Speaking of 7 years, the marriage itch has been satisfied and then some. I'm over being the mommy of three with the additional adult "child" I call my husband. This past year has tested us as a couple and showed me where his priorities truly lie. I've given my best. I'm done. My unhappiness has only grown to anger and bitterness. And it's time for a change towards the positive. This year will be our last as a couple. Everything happens for a reason and I've learned a great deal.
I'm going to be working hard.
This last year brought some fun times. I watched my dear friend walk the stage and get her diploma.
It's been good overall even while shadowed in sadness or regrets. I eagerly embrace 2015. The changes and the struggles. The good with the bad. It's making me stronger, wiser, braver. My confidence grows. These things make it all worth my while.
I don't bother with New Years resolutions. Why wait for a new year to make a change that can be started now? Over this next year though, I will strive to love myself more. To take a few minutes here and there to relax and give myself a break. I'll fight to be a better mother.
