Hope you get to spend as much time as you can with your loved ones and friends. To me, that is what the holiday season is about. :-)
I know I should of been blogging a few months ago but life has been hectic. Between planning a wedding, getting a promotion at work, and balancing out time for others and myself, it has been a whirlwind. I have described it as a roller coaster with those closest to me.
2015 has been an up and down year for me. For starters, my engagement changed things in my household. What was a "me" thing is becoming a "we" thing. I remember sitting in my nurse managers office during our annual review time and telling her that the only thing that was changing on my end was that I was getting married. Little did I know, it was a major change, and I only shrugged it off as a no big deal thing.
A few months ago, I found myself sitting in the doctors office with weird aches, pains, and overall not feeling physically well. Little did I know, I was having a panic attack. I have never experienced that before in my life. I thought other medical issues where going on. I couldn't believe it and felt like an idiot when the doctor came in and asked what other stressors where going on in my life. I had been caught up in the midst of things, trying to internalize everything that what it ended up doing was making me physically ill.
It was then that I realized that I had to change. I knew I couldn't stay the same person and expect everything to be okay. Not only did I have to change for myself, but for Adam, my family, friends, and the patients who depend on me. I know a panic attack is not the best thing in the world but for me, if I didn't experience it, I would have not had the courage to change. The panic attack was a blessing in disguise.
I found a few things a while ago that I wrote down in previous years that were goals for whatever year I was in or coming into. To my surprise, everything I wrote down, I accomplished in that year. So to get "back to the basics" so to speak, I wrote down specifically goals I want to accomplish for 2016. I am also thinking about a new project for this blog and to collaborate with my hubby to be, Adam. I am so excited to share this new chapter with you all. Ultimately, I am hoping that it will start to generate and grow for 2016.
I am looking forward to 2016 in a major way. I hope you are too and are being intentional about the goals you are setting for yourselves in the new year. Happy Holidays once again. I will see you all in February for a new year of blogging and new adventures!
With all the love my heart can hold,
