Oh, the possibilities of 2019!

I have so many things going on in my head and in my life right now. If I look at it all from an observer’s perspective it’s positively dizzying! But from the *eye of the storm* I see an unlimited number of amazing possibilities!

Sure, there are bumps in the road and windy days. But I think overall I’m so pumped and ready for 2019!! Here’s just a few of the exciting things going on and what I’m thinking at the moment:

  • We are moving! This is by far the biggest change and event of the year! From North Dakota to Mississippi! I will honestly miss the snowy winters – even with the cold (as the wind howls outside at gusts of up to 50 mph winds and -30 degree windchills! I must be crazy… lol. but I love it!). Though I equally as excited to go to the beach every weekend! Too much?! I don’t think so. 😉

  • We are buying our very. first. home.!!! I am like a kid in a candy store! It needs some upgrades, but that is so fun for me! I’m exctied to fix it up how we want it, and I know, there is a lot of responsibility and burden and cost associated with owning a home, but I think we’re ready for that, and it will all add to the adventure!

  • My husband is starting a new job. This is always an unknown. Will he like the people he works with? will they get along? is the job secure? Is this somewhere we want to stay? Is this really what he wants to do long term? So far the answers all seem to be overwhelmingly positive and we couldn’t be more grateful. With buying a home, we are crossing our fingers that things will be exactly, if not better, than what they seem.

  • I feel different. 3 years ago I went into a social funk, and I think I’m finally on the tale end of it. I’m starting to feel like my old confidant self again, and it feels so good. I don’t know what happened there in the middle, but I sure did lose myself and struggled to get my feet on the ground. I’m still not where I want to be, but I feel like my feet are on the ground and ready to take me there. It feels good to feel like I’m in control of me again. 🙂

  • Freedom! Over the last couple of years, one thing I did was a LOT of learning. Learning how to run a business, build a website, branding, marketing, and oh so much stuff! And I’m still learning! But in the middle of it I was getting pulled in 100 different directions of “do this” and “do that” and I couldn’t keep my hat on. But as of now I feel like I’ve learned the rules – and while I still haven’t implemented them all, I know enough that I can now throw them out the window and do whatever it is I want! lol. (Kind of like when you learn art… first you have to learn the rules so you can break them. 😉 ) I like being the rebel and doing things my own way. ESPECIALLY if it means swimming against the current. I like to be different. Sometimes that trait leaves me feeling pretty alone and defeated, but at the end of the day, I’d rather be different than just like everyone else. It’s exciting and adventurous, and I’m ready for some adventure in my life again!

  • Simplify. With big changes, and my awesome kiddos growing up and needing me in different ways, I’m ready to simplify. Over that last couple of years I really took on every role and wanted to do every thing. And it was too much. Obviously. A person can only successfully wear only so many hats.
