2014: The Year of Change

2014: The Year of Change

It’s 3.30 am and I am sitting here, finally typing this… I have been running through the year in my head for the past hour or so…

What an awesome year it has been for me and my family. My family increased this year and honestly we are so, so blessed. We have had difficult moments but together we got through.

It’s been a defining year in my marriage, we have learnt so much more about each other, discovered sides of one another that came unveiled as a result of more responsibilities. We have figured out how to handle our challenges without involving the world. We have remained friends and laughed together throughout.

My kids…it has been wonderful seeing them grow this year, I am so pleased to be able to have mini conversations with D; it’s fun watching them grow. They are truly blessings and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

Friends…come and go. I have met several amazing people in the course of the year at my son’s school, while shopping, at church and at work. I have been terrible at keeping up relationships because frankly I get so wrapped up in my own little world. This I will continue to aim to get better at….

Career wise; 2014 was surprising. I had new experiences that have enriched my skills and given me the courage to take the next bold step. I worked at two jobs this year and the variety of experiences gained has been wonderful. I have discovered some of my strengths and my weaknesses and these will help in my next steps.

Spiritually, I did not achieve certain things I would have loved to, I feel I did not pray enough, read my bible enough, have faith enough…but God remained faithful.

As I step into the last few hours of 2014 I cannot but feel grateful for an amazing year; a year of growth, a year of change.

Goodbye 2014!
