September brought back to school. (I vowed myself to be a present and happy mama when getting my oldest off to Kindergarten & my youngest starting Pre-school. I made the after school cookies, I cooked healthy meals & was very in the moment. Apparently I was so in the moment with that I barely blogged…I did share some Fall Fashion.
October I made an attempt to blog every day, and re-introduced myself.
November came and we Stay-Cationed.
Queen of Christmas, I made sure to soak up all the things in December.
Overall, 2018 was a pretty kick-butt year. We had some downers, and I’ve learned not to trust people so easily. (ALWAYS PERFORM A GOOGLE SEARCH!!!!) My family grew closer, loved ones beat illness, bonds grew stronger, we traveled with the kiddos on a plane and by the way, they just keep growing bigger and bigger! Getting a puppy was probably the most stressful and one of the harder things of the year. Things were just getting into a groove with the kids being older, and well having a puppy is legit 10x harder than a child. I said it.
I’ve learned a lot this past year. I feel like I’ve finally understood how precious time and who and what to give my time to. I pretty much re-learn weekly that I need to put myself first sometimes and that in order to give, I need to take time outs for just me.
I’m working on letting go, I know I’m a control freak and I want things to go a certain way. Like this blog; I write because my soul craves it and my heart feels so happy when I share. However, I struggle with how much I share because anyone can read it. I’m always real, authentic and honestly don’t know how to be any other way. This is my happy place and if I’m going through something I share because maybe my words could resonate with someone else.
There is so much power in written words.
I pray my words will be used for good and not against me.
I’m hopeful and excited for the new year. I will be sharing my “word of the year” for 2019 soon and have quite a few blog posts already scheduled–who dis?!
Have a beautiful New Year’s Eve and stay safe friends!
