The New Year and Some Changes
Hi friends! It's that time of year again where we sit and reflect on the year that's just passed. I think most of us can admit that 2016 was a whirlwind and a roller coaster, to say the least. So much happened in my year and I can honestly say I'm ready for it to come to a close.
A lot of changes are happening for me as the year comes to an end. The most exciting, but also super scary, is that I'm changing careers! I'm joining my husband in the Real Estate world at the beginning of the year and I am beyond ecstatic. One thing I've definintely learned this year is that time is our greatest commodity, and between my long days and my commute, I've been wasting a lot of my time. It's become impossible for me to live as healthily and happily as I want in my current position so I knew it was time for me to make a change.
While I knew I needed a drastic change to happen it definitely hasn't been an easy decision and is still incredibly bittersweet, even as I'm ready to start a new chapter in life. We are lucky in life to come into contact with so many amazing people, some just in passing and some who become friends. Whether it was my acquaintances who I commuted with or my co-workers who've become family, everyone was incredibly supportive of my decision and the kindness and support I've received restored my belief that the world is full of kind people who truly care about others. As this year comes to a close with so many terrible things going on in the world, I really needed that little boost of faith in humanity and am so very lucky I've gotten the chance to befriend so many wonderful people who have taught me so much.
What does this all mean for the blog? Well my hope is that with my new career comes a lot more time to spend doing the things I love again, including giving my blog some much needed time and attention. As I look back at my blogging year I definitely wish I could have or would have spent a lot more time and effort on it, as I've truly enjoyed blogging and the community that comes with it. To all my friends who have put up with my inconsistency and still came to my blog and showed me so much love, thank you, thank you, thank you. I definitely want 2017 to be a year full of blogging!
I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you who have read a post, commented, or interacted with me on my other social media. You guys are amazing, I'm so happy to be a part of this community, and I wish you all the love and happiness in 2017! XO
