Hello, everyone. It has been an emotional year for me. This has been the first full year without my grandma/mommy in it. This year, 2015, I have allowed myself to feel all the emotions that I kept avoiding back in 2014 when she passed away. I promised myself a year to get used to life without her in it, seeing that she has been there since the beginning.
Well, I did just that. I allowed myself the emotional journey in 2015, and now I welcome 2016 a stronger woman.
As I prepare to welcome a new year, I bring no new years resolutions with me. This year I just have different goals centered around self-improvement and self-growth. I want to have more of a positive, christ-centered life. I want to grow spiritually. I am no longer going after perfection because it is an impossible task to achieve. I want to love harder, listen more often, and grow from every experience. When I make a mistake I want to do what I can to resolve it and continue moving forward.
These are my goals, not my resolutions.
I wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year. May you continue to grow, connect with God, and positively touch lives with the life that you’ve been given.
See you all next year.
