As I had hoped it would be, 2014 was a year of intention. We really dug in and lived this year on purpose, and the result was a year that I'm really proud of.
Micah and I went to Vegas.
We paid off my car.
We welcomed my niece, Blakely, into the world.
I struggled to figure out how to balance work and motherhood.
Grace walked for the first time.
And then we celebrated her first birthday.
We said goodbye to my Mimi.
I explored New York with my mom.
I finished my first Whole30 and began a transition to a whole new way of life.
We added another dog to the family.
We got the diagnosis of my Uncle Clay's cancer and later rejoiced in his healing and remission!
I joined the gym and began consistently working out.
We went to Micah's ten year high school reunion.
I celebrated losing 100 pounds.
Micah and I had a long weekend in Austin.
We celebrated a simple Christmas.
And of course, there were millions of small, sweet moments with Grace and Micah that will forever be etched into my heart.
As for 2015...
As for 2015...
I'm lucky that I'm naturally inclined to be content. It's part of my nature, and I'm thankful for it. But my tendency to be happy wherever I am often means I am unmotivated to move. This is true in all parts of life and particularly in my spiritual life.
So this year, I'm going to grow. I'm going to overcome my inertia and seek to be better/kinder/Godlier each day. I will be deliberate in my prayer and Bible study and let Him draw my heart closer to His.
What are you hoping to do better in 2015?
