It has been quite a year for me. When I first began submitting dream inspiration stories to 8WomenDream, I didn’t know exactly where this crazy adventure called life would take me.
Since submitting my first story, I’ve accomplished several dreams: Graduating from college, accepting my first corporate job, moving across the country to live my dreams in San Francisco, launching my own website, and so much more.
Now, as I write this, I’m back home for a quick but so fulfilling holiday trip to Ohio to spend time with my family.
None of this would have been possible without the love and faithfulness of God and the many people in life who have supported and encouraged me along the way.
I’m thankful for the challenges, the roadblocks, the hardships because they have only been overshadowed by adventures and opportunities. I’m thankful for the ups and downs because they most certainly have taught me to appreciate the “highs” much more.
I really don’t know what’s in store for me next year. Last year, I made a resolution to not make resolutions.
Instead, I make goals. I dream big.
This coming year will not be any different. I make monthly “resolution goals” but these aren’t resolutions that are “destined to fail” if you know what I mean.
Things like “lose 15 pounds” and “eat healthily” are not proactive. For me, the focus is to take small steps to be a better, happier, and healthier person each and every day. Just because it’s December 31 or January 1 doesn’t mean I need to make new goals and dreams.
Every day is a chance to launch and start new dreams.
Cheers to you for being here the past year to read and support my wild, fun, ridiculous, and ever-changing journey.
