How are we already 2 weeks into 2019? How many New Year resolutions have already been broken? As I’ve said last year, I’m not a resolutions kind of person. My constant, ongoing life resolution is to always be aware of myself and to improve who I am as a person. Constant growth. It’s a thing.

2018? So much has happened in one year. Not all good, but not a lot of bad.

I quit my first job in Vegas. A job that I was really excited about. A job that I thought I would be really good at. After only 4 months, I realized how unhappy I was at that job. I was constantly stressed and anxious. I had terrible anxiety attacks and constant digestion issues. In the end, that job wasn’t for me, and I’m okay with that. Because God is good. He was calling me elsewhere.

I am now proud to say that I am an operations manager at a social services agency. And I can honestly say I love my job. It’s a lot of work and a lot of responsibility, but I love what I do. Being more financially comfortable doesn’t hurt, either.

We ended up not buying a house. We nearly closed on a house that we really loved! But the sellers ended up cancelling our contract. After all the time and energy and money we invested in looking for a house to buy, we decided to take a break and wait on the house. Allen and I are only 26 years old. We have time. It sucks, but we’ll find the right house for us at the right time.

Ultimately, I am content with my place in the world. But I also have so much I want to do. I want to learn. I want to travel. I want to grow. 2019, I’m ready.

“Write it on your heart that everyday is the best day in the year.”
