Hi Friend and Happy 2017!! I hope the holidays treated you well 🙂 After some time away from writing here in this little space of mine, I’m ready to get back to sharing with you the happenings in my life as well as what’s on my heart.
As I reflect back on 2016, I have this overwhelming feeling of HOPE. Hope for what the new year brings and hope for how God will use me. So much change has happened over the last year and I am definitely not where I thought I would be…
I’m some place better.
I’m more still, patient, joyful, connect, present and hopeful. My faith is stronger. And I now feel confident in where God has called me to be. I’m so grateful for the ups & downs that the past year brought with it…they brought me to a place where my relationship with God and the people I love is stronger than ever.
When I think about the possibilities that are ahead of me, I feel overcome with joy. Knowing where you’re supposed to be and getting there is so fulfilling. For so long I moved from job to job, never feeling truly satisfied. It wasn’t until I finally got quiet and listened to what God was trying to tell me, did I find true contentment. Getting to use my story to help others brings so much happiness to my life.
I always knew there had to be more to my journey, but I had no idea just how amazing it would be.
I’ll be honest, when I first started this blog I wanted it to be a place where I could share and document my life now…as a momma and no longer someone who struggles with HA. But I kept feeling this pull to share. Share my story, share what worked for me and share how I could help. I had no idea how things would change by following my heart. If you’ve been with me from the start, I’m sure you’ve noticed the progression. Sometimes you may have to walk along blind, solely relying on your Faith to get to a place where everything feels right.
I love that I get to help others going through the struggles of my past as well as share my heart and where I am today. My hope is that it inspires others to never give up. This can be your reality too. To be on the other side and truly recovered is simply amazing!
As I move forward into the new year…
I’m not exactly sure where God will continue to lead me, but my hope is to continue to provide encouragement to those in the HA Sisterhood as well build connections here with you. I’m not one to set resolutions, but I do have some goals/priorities for the coming year:
- Continue to build my relationship with God
- Spend more time being present with my family
- Provide support & encouragement to those struggling with HA
- Be more intentional about getting together with the special people in my life
I hope that as you reflect back on the past year and look forward to the future, you’re filled with happiness & excitement for what’s to come. Thank you for reading along and for all your support…Cheers to 2017!!!
