To start...we made it. At some points throughout this year I wasn't sure if an end was in sight. You started off great...
Let's begin, first I had gotten a small promotion at work. My goals were set high. Then April/May hit and man, it's been crazy ever since.
In May I got a job in Minnesota, I was so excited to finally "be on my own". I had my own apartment. Things were going great. Then, I got sick. CF decided it needed some attention. After a week in the hospital, my emotions tested to the max, I was sent home on IV's. Nothing unusual. Then it was suggested I move back closer to home.
I was a little crushed. I had to leave my home that I loved. It was mine. I wasnt to upset to leave where I was working as I was able to transfer locally.
So in July, somehow God was watching over me, one of my neighbors parents wanted an apartment, and mine was right next door to her, and they even needed furniture, so everything was worked out and they got my apartment. I'm not even sure how that happened, but I know it was all in Gods hands.
This year I also became an aunt for the first time, and oh my gosh do I love that title. Such a blessing.
That now brings us to current. Last month I turned 21. A milestone years ago I was told wouldn't happen. I went to Beverly Hills with my parents and amazing friends to celebrate. Then we had the holidays, my favorite time of the year, and I was blessed with yet another holiday season with my amazing grandpa.
In conclusion, even though we're ending a little negativity with health issues(see last blog post), I write all this to say, Thank You 2015.
Thank you for all the craziness this past year. Out of all the past few years I will say, this has been one of the worst, and best. It's been one of the worst because there were times I didn't know what was going to happen or how things would turn out, but somehow everything always figures it's way out. But it's been one of the best years, because besides all the bad, this year has made me so much stronger. I've learned a lot and grown a lot. I've come closer to God and learned to leave everything up to him and it'll work out. I've learned to be thankful for the little things, and in the end it's made me a much stronger person.
You started out a good year and I would've never known all that was going to happen. I guess the saying is true; "I didn't know my own strength". But now I know that with my faith I can conquer anything, and I now know my own strength. I've gotten to live the saying; "you don't know how strong you are, until being strong is your only option", and I must say...I AM strong. I will NOT break. I AM a fighter. With those three things, and my faith...ill be alright. I've got a lot of living left to do.
Thank you 2015, you've been swell, but I think we'll end here.
2016...welcome. I can't wait to see the adventures this year.
