2012 was the hardest year of my life. 2013 was certainly an improvement, but that wasn’t hard to do.
No, I didn’t get married, engaged, or have a kid. BUT I sure did look good NOT doing all of those things 😉
I met all the fitness goals I set for myself. I lost 40 pounds. I ran an 8k. I started this awesome blog with my awesome cousin Rose. I had some great accomplishments happen professionally.
As far as relationships go, things were sort of stagnant. I definitely got closer to Philly friends, and a few family members. I ended a pretty toxic relationship. Dated just a bit, but not very much.
As you all have probably gathered by now, I’m pretty hard on myself. I’ve been reflecting these last few days feeling like I didn’t “succeed” this year since not EVERYTHING I wanted to happen did. I’ve been feeling extra lonely lately.
But when I really look back, I need to give myself a lot more credit. Another pat on the back. An extra pep talk. I need to remember that healing and growing is a process that doesn’t come with directions or a timeline. I’m still learning what I want out of life. I definitely feel like I’m on a journey that’s not close to over.
Even though 2013 had its pretty big bumps, overall it was a really fantastic year. I’m excited to see what 2014 has in store!
