What can I say about 2015? Personally, it was full of tragedy turned triumph. Professionally, it was challenging yet fulfilling. While I’m not exactly sad to see it go in order to move on to a new year, I can’t fully embrace 2016 without reflecting on a year in which I learned so many lessons and received so many blessings. I lost a lot of friends this year, but strengthened some relationships with other friends that were worth the effort and time. I nearly lost my youngest brother, but instead got to witness a miracle. I tried to be a great mom, did okay, and finally stopped beating myself up about not being perfect. I discovered new talents and an occupational gift and decided to go all in, even though things weren’t perfect.
Oh yeah, 2015 was full of all of that.
The blessing of having a blog is that all of those lessons and moments are documented in black and white for me to look back on and marvel at for ever and ever. How cool is that? I thank all of you for reading here, commenting and engaging with me. Thank you, also, for making these 5 posts the top posts of 2015.
