2014 Reflection

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

This year has been filled with heart break, loss of employment and self-confidence, depression, and significant weight gain. But it also brought new life (granddaughter #2), closer relationships with my daughters and self acceptance.

I realize that I had set high goals and expectations for the type of life I wanted to live and career. So when it all fell apart, so did I. But I know now this was all part of God's plan to bring me back to Him. Once I started praying and holding quiet conversations with Him, I began to find peace. The peace that no one or anything can destroy. That inner-peace...

With this peace came the ability to put things in perspective and to actually lose 17 lbs in 3 months. For ME, that is a major accomplishment because I have been struggling with my weight since 2008 by losing and gaining it all back PLUS some. But, I have NEVER lost this much!! emoticon

Now, I'm working on finding my "dream job" by re-branding myself, and giving my resume a complete overhaul. I know that everything will work out according to His will, now that I am working on being faithful.

I am thankful and blessed to have BOTH of my parents, my siblings, children and now grandchildren. In hindsight, all of life's calamities has only made me stronger and more determined to find my place amongst the stars... emoticon

I can and WILL succeed (one step at a time)...

    Wow, the similarities : )
    I don't have any grandkids as yet. I only recently lost 9 pounds for the year (hit a nasty plateau). I only have my mom, thank God : )
    It's amazing what can come out of the world as you know it falling apart in front of your eyes. God is good!!! : )
    Happy 2015!!!
