2015 is coming to an end. I am reflecting on the past year and I am realizing I need o do a better job of journaling and maybe do monthly highs and lows blog post or journal entry! I literally feel like Dec 2014 was a blink ago!
As I look back on 2015, a few things come to mind: Loss, work and exhaustion. I feel like there was a lot of loss in 2015 and, well, I worked a majority of the year “away”. I am grateful to end 2015 with a job I like and where I am appreciated!
I read through the 2015 goals I set and realized I did not reach about half of them. Yet I am not disappointed. I can see the circumstances that caused me NOT to reach certain goals. I am not making excuses in any way shape or form – but sometimes life and your career get in the way (temporarily) of reaching your goals. God has a plan. Being nimble and flexible are one of the major keys to success! One of the most important goals I did reach was to grow in my Faith and develop a closer relationship to the Lord.
I feel like 2015 was a rebuilding year on many levels, and I feel like I have had several rebuilding years. But maybe life is about constantly rebuilding and re-navigating?!
2016 is full (possibly overflowing) with goals and To Do lists! I am praying for a major work life balance as well as energy and stamina. I KNOW my end of 2016 blog post will have a different tone. To be clear: I feel like my 2015 tone is a bit “iffy” and I am not sure how to change that, but, 2015 WAS a good year! It was very full and tiring, but good!!
PS: I usually have a suitcase with me at midnight on New Year’s Eve as a superstition to attract travel in the new year. With the amount of business travel the past year if anyone has any suggestions on HOW I can differentiate pleasure vs business travel please let me know! I may consider leaving my suitcase in the closet this year!!
