It’s been so long since I’ve written. I’ve missed it so much.
I’ve spent the last few months continuing to grow by applying the tools that I’ve learned. And here recently, I’ve been learning new things by reading a book about grief.
Grief is not just experienced during time when a person dies but people experience grief during times of high emotions like being let go from a job, loss of a pet, moving, divorce, graduation, financial issues, empty nesting, retirement or even health issues to name a few.
I’m about half way done with this book and I have made some new connections that is helping understand myself on a different deeper level.
So I can’t wait to share more as times goes on.
I’m not a big believer in New Years resolutions mainly because I have not been successful in past years. At first it’s motivating it soon fades.
But I am a believer in words and how powerful they are for me. So rather than say, I’m going to join a gym and workout everyday, I’d rather say my focus is on self care this year and see how that plays out.
I found that for 2015 I wrote ‘living life with drive and purpose, faith and integrity, grace and joy, consistency and always with kindness.’ This was a hard year and I’m not sure how successful I was in all those words that year but then I got to start over.
And for 2016 my recovery journey started and I started the year off with ‘Trust His Plan’
I used words from my High School crest for 2017, ‘Grow in grace and wisdom’
For 2018 I wrote simply ‘I Love’. Which covered rediscovering and enjoying things I love and being open to finding new loves, like axe throwing! I went Axe Throwing a few weeks ago and loved it. It was so much fun.
So for 2019 my words are…..drum roll…
This is about doing even more that I love. Being around people I love. And stepping into new things coming my way with confidence.
I look forward to writing more this coming year and sharing new skills and dreams.
My journey to serenity continues…
Stay on this ride with me, the best is yet to be.
