I am WAY overdue and am lucky if ANYONE reads this post! I REALLY missed blogging! There were so many things about 2013 I wanted to share, but didn’t get a chance to.
The past year has been a whirlwind. I got an unexpected dream job opportunity that literally presented itself out of the blue (thanks to my dear friend that I met in college). So, early in the year I jumped on the opportunity, but also stayed at my job of now seven years.
Somedays, I spend MANY hours on the road commuting, others at my office job near home. Even though most of the year has been about juggling two jobs, adjusting to crazy work hours, & pretty much not having a life, it’s been an AMAZING year! I feel very blessed! I’ve been able to go on a honeymoon get-a-way, take part in my sister’s wedding, & vacation over the summer.
My 2013 themes: change & stepping out of my comfort zone. Oh, boy did I step out of my comfort zone!
The craziness of 2013 has made me realize how valuable time is. When you don’t have as much time to be with your family (never mind hobbies), you start to get a little cuckoo & realize how you need those little things that bring you happiness to keep you sane!
That said, for me, this year will be about taking risks, leaps of faith, trusting my instincts, listening to that inner voice that is now SCREAMING at me. I will most importantly ALWAYS put my family first.
Goodbye 2013…Hello 2014!
