Can y'all believe we're almost two full weeks into January already?! The older I get the more I feel like the years just fly by. I'm always super sad when Christmas is over but someone just reminded me the other day that the way time flies it will be Christmas again before I know it (regardless of that fact I'm not taking my Christmas tree out of my room for at least another month) and they are absolutely right. That just means I need to learn to enjoy everything life throws at me since its goes by so fast
The start of a New Year is always such a great feeling. You get to leave any worries or troubles behind in the previous year (or try to) and start fresh again with a blank canvas. For me 2016 wasn't quite the shitstorm of a year that it seemed to be for a lot of other people. I met MN, my brother and SIL found out they were having a baby, my sister and her girls finally got their new house, my moms scans continued to come back with good news, and my dad started a new job which meant that the oil industry was finally starting to pick up. I worked really hard on hitting some financial goals and though I didn't quite achieve them I got myself that much closer for 2017 and I definitely can pat myself on the back for that.
Though 2016 was a pretty good year for me I was still looking forward to 2017 because I have BIG plans for it. I'm not going to be sharing everything quite yet because somethings are still in the works but I have set myself some goals to accomplish for the year and I'm excited to get started on them (some I already have - go me!)
