Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

I wish I could say that it has been a great year. Unfortunately, it has been one of the most difficult years of my life. Needless to say I’m ready to say good riddance to 2016! 

I try not to dwell on the negative, so I do want to highlight some of the very awesome things that happened this year.  

  • My husband and I have become closer than ever and have overcome many difficulties which have made our relationship very strong!
  • I have become closer with family, my family and my husband’s family. 
  • I learned how to be a positive person not a negative person. This has been one of my biggest accomplishments this year!
  • I started blogging!!!! 
  • I started freelance writing and made a few hundred dollars! That was a huge success for me personally and professionally!
  • I learned what I really want to pursue long term as my career: writing. 
  • My husband and I are now debt free and rebuilding our credit. 
  • We just moved 2 weeks ago from an apartment to a rental house in the country! Home sweet home!!!
  • We got a puppy for my husband as an emotional support animal to be his companion!

I have a lot of goals for 2017 and I dont want to call them resolutions, just goals. 

  • Keep the house cleaner
  • Write on my blog on a regular basis
  • Get promoted at work
  • Write a book!
  • Get healthier! (Eat better and get in shape! Our new house has a pool so I need to get ready for summertime!)
  • Write in a journal daily
  • Budget both time and money better
  • Learn how to do hula hoop dancing!(my way of fun excercize)
  • Stay positive
  • Keep a garden!
  • Make time for me to relax

I am spending the night at home with my husband and our puppy Lexy watching tv and relaxing! 

 I truly hope you are all having a happy and safe new years eve and a very happy and healthy new year!!!
