I know every year about this time we wonder, where did the year go!?
I can vividly remember this time last year, thinking of 2012 and how great it was going to be and what was going to lie ahead and now, it’s come and gone.
I am now officially over the Christmas music on every station and so done with the long lines and stressed out people at every store; I can’t bear to look at another piece of wrapping paper, let alone my once bright and cheery Christmas tree, which is now a more greenish-brown and losing a needle a minute but besides all of that I definitely will miss the Christmas cheer, the extra happy people and the sense of family this time of year.
As I look back over the year, I wonder, was it what I expected?
Did I accomplish all I wanted?
Did my resolutions stick or did they fizzle a quarter of the way through?
I can say overall it was a great year, nothing too crazy or over dramatic but a steady incline.
I received a promotion at my job, my husband and I happily celebrated our 2 year anniversary, we had our first ‘family’ camping trip and you can say it was a success (meaning no one got kicked out of their tent or was eaten by a bear!)
God has been great and has blessed us this year, not with money or material things but with lots of great memories and that is all I could ask for.
What about you?
Have you reflected back over this past year and if so, was it everything you expected and more?
Did you set goals and stick to them?
Are you in a better place now than you were last year? If not, why?
What could you have done differently and what will you do differently this year to come?
I’d love to hear about your journey this past year, the memories you’ve created, the lessons you’ve learned and the trials and triumphs you had to face, so please share your journey in the comments below.
I pray, even if this year was great, that next year would be even better.
Happy New Year and God Bless!
