HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I can’t believe it's officially 2016 and another year is upon us. With the fresh start of a new year it’s only natural to reflect on the past year to see just how much has changed in the past 12 months. Looking back now, soo…much happened in my life in 2015. I overcame stress/anxiety, got a new job, drove halfway across the country (by myself), moved to Denver, went to the Bahamas, took 15 flights, flew to Cali, Seattle, Milwaukee, Florida, Kansas City, and most recently South Dakota on NYE with the team!
At the beginning of 2015 last January I was probably at an all time low. Stressed, unhappy, and living life with no hope as it seemed like it was struggle to get through each day. During the middle of basketball season I was in ER a couple of times, had multiple EKG’s, a CT, ultra sounds on my chest, and a stress test all within a month. Following that up dealing with personal and family issues that tore my world upside down feeling like my life turned into some dramatic Lifetime movie was insane. I was convinced that 2015 had it out for me as it was poised to be THE worst year of my life.
But, a little faith goes a long way. In late March I quit filling sorry for myself, temporary circumstances and found hope. I woke up one morning, prayed, and decided to fight. For myself, for my life, and for my dreams. Two weeks later God blessed me with a new job in April, and a month later I was in Denver. Wayyyy up I feel #BLESSED!!!! Crazy how God can turn your life around literally in the blink of an eye.
Here I am 12 months later living a completely differently life than I ever thought was possible this time last year. I could easily sit here and tell myself that 2015 was awful, even though at times…it was. But I refuse to let everything bad that happened this past year outweigh some of the best memories of my life.
I’m so ready for a new year and fresh start, 2016 I have high hopes for you.
