The first week back to work after the holidays is always tough. This year was no exception. I’m just starting to get back into the swing of things! Although 2018 was not my best year, as I reflect on the year as a whole I realize how blessed I truly am. I completed my first year at my job, I visited friends, I started yoga, and I finally addressed some health issues. There is so much more I would have liked to accomplish, but I am proud of the little steps that I made towards my long-term goals.
This Christmas was especially tough, since it was the first Christmas without my grandmother. She was the center of ourfamily and always made sure to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Though Christmas wasn’t quite the same without her, I could feel her celebrating with us in spirit!
A few snapshots of my family and I outside of the Wortham theater before seeing the Nutcracker ballet and at the annual family Christmas Eve party:The transition from December to January really isn’t that different, but thinking of the new year as a new beginning feels good…even if it is just a date. This year I plan on focusing on my physical and mental health. I tend to focus my energy on other stressors in my life and avoid making my overall well-being a priority.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and wish you all the best for the new year! With that, I will leave you with the only New Years resolution I make for myself every year: BE HAPPY
