What Will You Be in 2015?

It seems like days pass with a blink of an eye and before we know it another year comes and goes! 2014 was a year of personal growth for me. The year started at a time when I needed the most help. I had suffered emotional losses and in 2014 I began to pick up the pieces and put my emotional puzzle back together. There were times when I felt like I had lost myself and that I wouldn't be able to feel "normal" or happy again. It took months for me to recover! After reflecting on the ups and downs of 2014, I am so happy with where I am today!

Jon and I made the decision to pick up our life in Colorado and move to Arizona where we could be with our families and friends once again. We wanted to start over fresh and this opportunity allowed us to do just that! We began our Arizona chapter by finding a wonderful home where we could start new memories. We began making new friends and trying new things! Jon began his new hobby of wood working. He has created many masterpieces that are in our beautiful house today. I started a new job at Carlson Elementary where I teach 2nd grade to a wonderful group of children in Chandler, Arizona. We are happier now than we have been in a long time. We cannot forget the hard times we have been through but we have learned to focus on the growth we have made through these difficult trials that we have been given.

2015 is going to be a year of new. We are going to try new things, and focus our lives on things that make us feel new and refreshed! Instead of making goals of things I want to do in 2015, I am making a list of who I want to be in 2015. I don't want to focus on the task but who I can become!

I will be more patient.
I will be confident.
I will be happy. 
I will be a loving and supportive wife.
I will do what I can to be a mom.
I will be more organized.
I will be adventurous.
I will be a great friend.
I will be successful in my career.
I will be spiritually ready to face future trials.
I will be thoughtful and giving as my Dad would want me to be.
