New Year’s Already!

alreadyOnce again, another year has passed by and we are left wondering what the New Year will hold for us all. I remember around this same time one year ago, I was so excited for 2017 to end holding onto the hopes that 2018 would be a better year. Honestly 2017 was a pretty miserable and disastrous year for me. It almost seems like anything that could go wrong, did go wrong! Going into a new year with high and positive hopes has paid off way more than I thought it ever could. I will say that several good things happened towards the end of 2018 for myself and my husband!

As I already said 2017 was a crazy year full of absolutely nothing but stress and let downs. If I am being completely honest with y’all, 2018 started off the same exact way images (2)2017 ended, but towards the end of the year started looking up. It wasn’t until September I was able to find a new job in the city we were moving to and able to quit the job that caused me SO MUCH misery! My husband and I had started trying to make plans to move years ago, but nothing aligned the way we needed them to, so we pushed the plans of moving back a little while. After searching for so many months for a job in the new city, I received a few phone calls, but they were not meant for me. Right as I was ready to give up and lower my standards, the perfect job came through for me. As soon as I received the offer, I gladly gave my notice and scheduled our official move for 3 days after my last day at my previous job! It amazes me how well things can work out when you least expect them to. It sometimes seems that when we think nothing in life is going to go right, the stars align and life starts on a new journey of happiness.

If I asked you to compare 2017 and 2018, did anything change in your life for the good or MovingForwardbad? Moving forward into 2019, are there any changes you would like to make? I often believe that setting New Year’s Resolutions are a typical and very common way to set ourselves up for disappointments, frustration and unneeded stress. Many people make plans for huge life changes like diets, quitting drinking or smoking and feel so much pressure they end up giving up. Truthfully, I can’t think of the last time I actually made a New Year’s resolution, but instead try to make changes throughout the year as I see fit. How do y’all feel about setting New Year’s Resolutions?

How has your year been and are you ready for a fresh start with a new year? Do you happy-quotes-0001-3-4think there will be some positive changes in 2019 or will everything stay the way it is? I just hope that there will start to be FAR LESS HATE and MUCH MORE❤ LOVE for all. I think y’all already know this about me from previous posts, but I have NO room for hate and evil judgments in my life. It is almost 2019 and I think it is far past the time to look at everyone, no matter race, color, sexual origin, religious beliefs or ethnicity as equals! I have already said this a few times, but we are all just humans with a heart ❤(there is a chance some are missing a heart, but I won’t mention him by name!) Kind of just joking!

I hope y’all are doing well and you are having a great weekend! I am looking forward to reading your fabulous comments on this post. I know it might have been a little all over the place, but hopefully it made sense! I am really looking forward to continue blogging as much as I can and I do promise there will be a Motivational Monday tomorrow! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

  1. Great post!! I’m glad 2018 has been such a great year for you!!

    It’s been a dreadful year for me, almost to comic proportions!! So I have high hopes for 2019 to be a better year!

    I agree that resolutions are sort of… impossible to ever keep! So I’m going to write a list of goals, like what to accomplish and that sort of thing!


    • Thank you Meg! The beginning of 2018 wasn’t all that great, but at least things got better at the end of September.

      I hope 2019 will bring you nothing but happiness and I am so sorry 2018 wasn’t a good year.

      Making goals is much better than setting resolutions that most do not carry out!
      I hope you have a safe and wonderful New Year my dear!!

  2. I went into 2018 hoping, praying, everything that it would be better than 2017. It wasn’t nearly as bad but as this year ends I’m over it. I want 2019 to be a me year. Where I just fall in love with myself again. Best of wishes for your new year

  3. Happy New Year! I’m so happy for you and Jon and pray God has many blessings for you both in the new year. I know many people question if there really is a God. Let’s look at Alyssa’s situation. They were trying on different occasions to make the move and it just wasn’t working. After some time and many disappointments it finally happened that everything was in place for them. The move was about to happen. Think about it for a moment. God knows all and he knows when the time is right for things to happen in our lives. Unfortunately he’s not always on the same page as we are but his timing is perfect. Try trusting in God’s timing for your life.

  4. Happy New year to you love! Wishing you all the best in 2019. My 2018 was a real rough year and this year has started off rough for me too and not very exciting so hopefully it will start to look up soon like your 208 did. I agree with the quote. “Surround Yourself With those who make you Happy”. Very true. There are so many negative people in the world it’s best to keep away from them and not have them in your life. I think the best New Years Resolutions and I was unwell so unfortunately didn’t get to do a blog post on it but I will definitely be doing one next year are ones you can actually keep like being kind to others, looking after yourself, smiling more etc.

    • Thank you so much sweetie! I know 2018 wasn’t the best year for you and even though this year has started off difficult, I hope it get MUCH BETTER!!! There are a lot of negative people in this world so it isn’t easy to find positive people to surround yourself with, but it is possible! What didn’t happen this past New Year’s for you, don’t worry about and there is next year to post about it. Just try staying true to yourself and focus on the good things in life!!

  5. It is so important to find joy in the little things in life. I think my goal for this year needs to be being more thankful for the little things I have in life instead of looking at all of the things I’ve lost because of my illness.
