i was going over my what i want to do list for 2013.
some things i accomplished.
some things – not so much.
let’s review the list shall we:
i went through the list and crossed out the things i accomplished, or at least touched on.
there were – obviously – a lot of things i HAVEN’T done, and i’m ok with that.
i feel like 2013 was a year where i really took interest in life – and pursued some things that i never thought i would.
+ i went overseas to ireland and scotland (see entries here).
^i still can’t believe i DID this. with my anxiety struggles and fears, God was good and comforted my heart while i jumped plane to plane and made incredible memories.
+ i played a little game of truths & lie.
+ i turned 25 and shared some lessons learned.
+ i moved more – a lot more. i lost 35lbs this year! i started doing some things on my own, and then bumped up my accountability with my trainer. it’s been hard, and i still have a lot more to accomplish but can i just say how dang excited i am to fit into jeans i haven’t touched in 4 years?!?!
+ y’all – i got to see Ed Sheeran perform this year. absolutely amazing!!!
+ i totally fooled some people with this little prank. 😉
+ i shared some thoughts on blogging.
+ as well as some blogger confessions.
+ used that 50mm (and stock) lens and took some pictures!
+ the annual halloween party happened.
+ shared some fiction – which y’all have responded to in a way that is so humbling and encouraging!
+ the etsy crushes link up was born.
+ got deep with two really personal moments in my life.
+ went on a really awkward date. – story of my life.
+ tobi got sick a lot this year. poor buddy – but I can’t be taking you to the vet for every little thing anymore. momma is BROKE.
so there is a small list of some of the things that have gone down in 2013 for me. 2013 was definitely full of some struggles and drama, but God has been incredibly gracious and faithful. I’ve learned a lot about myself, my relationship with the Lord, friendships, adventure, and joy.
i’m looking forward to what 2014 will bring – what about you?
