Once 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 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 bad? 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 think 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!
