Honestly, how did we get to the beginning of the end of this year!!!
It’s around this time that I always sit and reflect on this past year. The ups, the downs. The dreams realized. The hopes deferred. The goals checked off. The addition of new goals. The losses and the gains.
This year came in like a wrecking ball. And I mean that literally. I always create a goal list for the year, and I try to review it every three, six and nine months to check on my progress and see if I am on target. This year was an incredible exception of each day being incredibly unpredictable, so needless to say, I have been off the mark!
The first three months proved to be a precursor of what the rest of the year was going to look like.
Life has a way of inserting itself in ways that genuinely leave you questioning EVERYTHING!!!
My vision and motto for this year were the”year of new” and boy did it prove to be just that. And although I have three solid months to go for 2018, I truly can’t imagine what more “new” could possibly come, but I am sure it will be life-changing as everything has been so far. Interestingly enough the “year of new” came with new experiences, new losses, new goals, new vision, new locations, new health experiences, and new sorrow.
As the year begins to wind down, though I have a lot more to get done and accomplish and experience, I await 2019 as the “Year of Miracles.” I will make my new set of goals, and maybe even carry some over from the “Year of New” and check in and see how I’m doing.
It’s an amazing journey of growth. It comes with incredible mosts of exhilaration and deep sorrows, but they are all part of this beautiful experience called LIFE.
I intend to live it loud and quietly. I intend to live it laughing and crying. I intend to live it dancing and sitting still. I intend to live it with others and sometimes alone.
BUT, I intend to live it!
Embracing all that it gives me. Learning so that I can teach.
What are your goals for 2019? What do you have left to complete for 2018?
Surround yourself with love, laughter, and joy, so that when those moments comes that strip of joy, love, and laughter, you have a source to draw from.
Don’t walk alone.
