A Work in Progress
Happy New Year Everyone!
Yesterday I posted my 2018 top nine with a caption that would be a good start to this post I think.
After traveling all over the country for the better part of last year, it was a journey of taking better care of myself that really started making an impact on my life. 2018 was a very long journey! The year was in a constant state change. A year of transition from place to place. Or just time changing me as a person. I didn't do everything right but over time I changed into a new person. This last year has been marked by so much change and some growth. I learned some lessons the hard way and other lessons I may have taken too long to learn. I made some choices that will forever change my life and met some people on this journey I will never forget. My physical changes may be evident but my spiritual and my mental growth isn't always. I hope that as I enter into the next season that growth becomes more evident and also continues to happen as I become a better person and version of myself. Thank you all for being a part of this last journey!
I now want to invite you to be a part of this next journey. I welcome you to be a part of helping me grow. I am a work in progress but this year I am learning to show my work! Although I am sure it will still have it’s ups and downs I pray that it will be more of the ups than the downs that I will see and focus on. I will be trying to remain relatively faithful of updating you on my continued journey. I may not be traveling to the farthest reaches of the country or the world right now but there is no knowing exactly where this next year will take me! I can ensure you that it will continue to take me to the reaches of my heart and imagination. I can guaranty that those have a very far reach. I am hoping in the coming months to write at least one or two short stories and share them here. I want to begin work on a novel. I am considering learning a new language. Learning to think differently. Possibly sharing some of the stories I have heard from others or even inviting some others to share their stories as guest bloggers. I plan to share a little bit more of my art as I begin to pick up a pencil and a paintbrush more frequently than I have in the past. So you may not see as many new pictures from my travels across the country but you will see what i am doing with what I have and see the beautiful things I find here in the place I am supposed to be. I am going to read a lot again. Maybe not as much as last year but I am going to be adding more books to help me grow and slow down the books for just entertainment. I am diving deeper into the Word of God and continuing to deepen my relationship with God as well. I am also going to reach a healthy weight and continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle staying active and adventurous! This year will be the new best year of my life.
