New Year, New Outlook.

Happy 2014! I can honestly say that. I’ve come into this new year completing a lot of personal goals and having many blessings in my life. Right now, things are ok. They aren’t super awesome or crappy but relatively ok and I can’t ask for much more than this. My finances are in a better place than they were a couple months ago (thanks to one BIG blessing!). I have wonderful friends in my life who are positive influences and bring me lots of joy. I’m attending a great college and doing well there. The job that I thought would last a couple weeks has lasted a couple years (and there is currently no end in sight *knocks on wood*). My family is so loving and strong, despite all that’s going on at the moment. I am truly blessed. Even though I’m not making the dean’s list or making tons of money or going out all the time, I’m really happy. There are people in this world that take their lives for granted. Someone could receive a check for a couple thousand dollars and it would mean nothing to them. Just some pocket change. Someone else could get that same check and drop to their knees in gratitude. It’s all about perspective and mine has drastically changed. I’m not living in the future. I’m not planning and hoping so much as before. I’m looking at what’s in front of me and thanking God for it, good or bad. I take time to say thank you for all the moments and things in my life. It’s done wonders. So has letting go of the past. I’ve held onto a lot of old feelings and they start to take a toll on you after awhile. I just surrendered it all (mentioned in a previous post) and it’s like a clean slate. I know there are some rough times ahead in this year but the good ALWAYS outweighs the bad. Here’s to 2014! I can’t wait! 🙂Image
