Well it is officially January 3rd. A new year, a fresh start. I chose to take a holiday break from blogging. I didn’t feel like I had a lot to say, life got busy. Even scary at times. Taking a small break meant I got to read more, enjoy life. I realized that all those writing blocks I felt, were caused by me. So now that they are gone, I feel creative again.
2015 was a refining year for me. I don’t think we ever stop learning who we are as a person. However, 2015 was the year I finally felt like I came to the place where I loved who I was completely. It’s been a long time since I felt like I was in a place where I was comfortable in my own skin. I never quite felt like I fully faced the fact that I still heard and beloved the lies that someone else put in my head. I felt silly and even stupid. But it’s not silly and it’s certainly not stupid. I needed to come to the point where I believed in who I was. Yeah, I have scars but I don’t have to be defined by them.
I also learned more about love. I didn’t think by a long shot that I would face my mom getting sick after a surgery that resulted in a hospital stay and another surgery. Praise God she is doing so good now.
Loving my husband more then I did the last and the both of us have learned how precious it is to spend time together.
Seeing people you love hurting is hard and sometimes just loving them is all you can do.
I made friends and lost friends. Learned more about God’s love and learning to trust that His ways are better.
Now here we are. 2016. I am looking forward. I have been blogging 2 years and excited for what this year has in store. So hello 2016, welcome!
