As the month comes to a close, most people are taking inventories on those promises they made to themselves just 30 days ago. As I was unwinding today, I decided to go back further and see the resolutions I made one year ago.
In this post: I Resolve I set forth a plan of what I wanted 2015 to look like. As I sit here rereading those words that weighed so heavy on my heart, I am overwhelmed.
Every. Single. One of those Hopes for the new year was accomplished.
I never thought I would be living out the life I am living. I am more confident in myself than I have ever been in my adult life. I feel stronger than I have felt in the last 15 years. I love the person I see looking back at me in the mirror, in all her perfect imperfections. I am in love with the dreams I am crafting for myself, for my future. The fact that I am planning for a future when just a few short years ago I couldn’t see past the day in front of me.
I am in love with my life. And all of that was accomplished by sticking to my plans for 2015 and now 2016 has the potential to be my best year yet. If January was any indication of what could be in store for me, I say: “Bring it on.”
So unlike the years of the past, as January comes to a close, I am not sitting here reeling in the feelings of defeat. I am shouting from the mountaintops that I am ready to bravely face all the challenges ahead.
Let’s make 2016 a wonderful year!
