Well, it’s the last day of 2015. I could be cliche and say all the usual things (I can’t believe it, it went so fast, etc.) – but honestly, I don’t think it went fast at all. I feel like I lived every day of 2015, in all the best ways.
I find that as I get older, I enjoy the year more than ever before. 2015 was like that for me. While nothing crazy or really exciting happened this year, I do feel like it was a successful one. I feel like we really spent this year growing as a family, and most of all we were generally happy and content.
I tend to crave consistency. Change is sometimes hard for me, and while we did have a few of those (Chris’ job change that now requires some travel, most notably), I feel like we took them in stride. I feel like we needed this consistent year in our lives to just BE – to enjoy what we have right here, right now. I really feel like we were able to do that.
Looking ahead to 2016, I have a lot of goals, more than I remember having in years past. I have personal goals, family goals, blog goals, professional goals, health goals – so many things I want to work on about myself and our family. I want to be an example for Abbie that no matter how happy or content you are, there is always room for growth.
I hope to slowly share some of those goals with you all as 2016 begins, but to be honest – some I may keep to myself. I’ve already got my planner ready to go with space for notes and goals, and I’m really hoping to actually stick to my planner this year… I’ve failed at that far too many times!
So as 2015 draws to a close, I’m ready to see it go. I’m ready for the fresh start that a new calendar year brings and all the new things to come with it. I’m hoping it’ll be my best year yet. I hope you all have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve. I’ll be ringing it in with my husband at home, probably watching When Harry Met Sally. It’s my favorite kind of New Year’s Eve.
