Blogmas Week 4

As 2018 comes to a close, I want to take a few moments to look back and reflect.

2018 was a game changer for me. I got married, moved out, lost weight, gained weight, lost blogging motivation, and tried/trying to get pregnant. It was a huge year. I got to know myself on a different level. I got to see sides of me I can be proud and ashamed of. A lot of things have happened and I’m so grateful for every single one of them.

thank u 2018, next

This year I got married to the love of my life. A person who challenges me to be better yet accepts me for who I am, flaws and all. We got off to a rocky start but ten months later, we’re at a better place planning a future for us. I couldn’t imagine having a different partner. He is truly God’s gift for me and every day I go to bed thanking God because He gave me my love. I didn’t know I could fall like this but it’s true what they say – true love is worth the wait.

This year was a great year career-wise. I’m finally at a place where I can say that I like my job. It’s just stressful and full of pressure but I’m enjoying it! I’m learning from all the challenges I face and I also get to see a side of me I didn’t even know existed. There’s so much to learn in terms of handling and leading people. I don’t even know if I’ll ever be the kind of leader I want to be, but thank you 2018 for giving me a chance to try.

With all that’s happened, my passion project, aka my blog, took the backseat. It’s only now that I’m finally putting my head down and deciding if this blog is still worth continuing. The new WordPress plans aren’t helping either. I’m thinking of changing my domain (only because domains aren’t free on my plan anymore) and trying to refocus but I’m not sure. Maybe 2019 will be the year when I finally stop obsessing where this blog is headed and just blog?

2018 went by like a blur. Some things haven’t changed while there are other things I can’t even recognize. I wonder what 2019 will bring? What kind of challenges will I face? What kind of growth will I experience? I’m ready 2019. Bring it!

      1. I totally agree! Blogging can definitely feel like a chore but I know that once I start it’s very therapeutic for me for some reason. I just wish I had more time during the school year to blog. And yes I’m still getting over the shock of getting engaged lol Will definitely share photos when the time comes!!
