2014 has been a rough year for me and for the blog. So many tears, so many changes. It hasn’t all been bad, though. My ex and I went to Alaska, one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I have a new job that I like. My co-workers are really good to me and I am learning so much. I have been blessed with some amazing friends, who have been incredibly supportive. My brother moved across the state to live with me; that is love! Random acts of kindness from unexpected people have also blessed my life. The little things have kept me afloat when I thought I might drown. It has renewed my faith in humanity and encouraged me to increase my own personal compassion.

I hope 2015 is a year of rebuilding and improvement. Instead of making a resolution, I am going to make a list. A whole year is a long time and I have faith I can get a lot done. Cheer and Happy New Year!

A bad habit I am going to break: Negative, pervasive worry

A new skill I’d like to learn: How to be more handy around the house.

A person I hope to be more like: My boss, DJ. She is supportive and encouraging to everyone. Her kindness to me through these hard months has been amazing.

A good deed I am going to do: Buy the meal of someone behind me in the drive through.

A place I’d like to visit: Niagara Falls

A book I’d like to read: Too hard! I have 378 books on my Goodreads “To Read” shelf. I want to read them all!

A letter I am going to write: To my great aunt, Anna. To my OH friend Tom.

A new food I’d like to try: Marmite.

I’m going to be better at: Being more emotionally intelligent. Thinking before I speak.
