This year has been full of ups and downs already. Granted, I started this project 5 months into the year, so we’re actually almost finished with 2015 (scary I know). It’s gone by quickly, and as much as I hate for another year to be over, I’m truly looking forward to next year.
When I started Project 29, I expected it to teach my clients more about me. What I didn’t expect was to learn a ton about myself. Some of it’s been not so great things, but a lot of it has been strengthening in ways I could never have imagined.
I’ve made a lot of changes within my life this year. A big one is making a valid attempt to ditch the negative circumstances that were shoved on me and embrace the happiness I have earned on a daily basis. While it’s proved challenging, it’s also proved life changing.
Then there’s been the challenge of finding a maintainable balance between everything I’ve got going on in life. Juggling multiple schedules and children has left me no choice but to ask for help almost weekly from my family members. I honestly can’t imagine what would happen if I didn’t have a reliable group of helpers when I needed them. Thankfully, I’m able to get things organized and with the help of my family, keep a roof over our heads and get time for myself without losing my mind. As things inch closer to that big old “grownup” 30, I’m realizing a lot of what I’ve been through has taught me where I want to go from here. I’ve remained true to myself, but I’ve grown and changed a lot. Sometimes we have to concentrate on where we’re going and let the rest of the world fall into place around us.
