9 thoughts on starting 2018

2018 is here and it’s just insane how time ticks away and life just doesn’t stop. If you have any connection to my husband on facebook, you would have seen that we have been up to so much over the last few weeks and I have deliberately given myself a break from the blog so that I can gather myself and really come to a place of “knowing” where I want to go this year.Its funny to actually write that down and read it back to myself. You’d think that by now, I’d have a clear understanding of who I am and where I want to go, right? But like everything in our lives, change is an inevitable thing and going with what my calling requires of me isn’t as clear cut as my human brain can actually process.

Honestly, there is so much to learn in life, that I would be so narrow minded into thinking that I would or could ever “arrive”. As I’m writing I thought I’d share the thoughts that are hanging in my head and heart as I step (should I say run) into this new year.

I am overwhelmed by the opportunities that lie ahead.

I am cautious to never take for granted of all that is in front of me and in my hands.

I am forever grateful for those that are around me and make my life so full.

I am choosing to always learn, in everything – even when it’s hard and I don’t like it.

I am going to continue to surrender to my Creator and enjoy the freedom in that place of vulnerability.

I am focusing on what is right in front of me – making sure to continuously push for what I cannot see.

I am soaking in the pursuit and experience of my dreams.

I am going to have fun as often as I can.

I am going to become a better version of myself, and not condemn myself when I make mistakes – thats when it’s time to learn and try again.

I don’t normally do new years resolutions but reading that back to myself – I think I just did. I pray that your year (and mine) will be filled with mountains to climb so that you can enjoy the beauty and pleasure of the achievement and success it brings. Even if your mountain takes another few years to conquer – keep climbing! and share it with me no matter where you are on the journey.

Let’s walk together and really learn from each other this year! Thank you so much for reading and walking with me through this life discovery of ours.



I'm a woman finding my way through life as the wife of Tim, the mom to 3 growing kids and trying to maintain some sort of self through it all. I hope you enjoy reading how I journey with my troops through this thing we call life.
