Ringing in 2019

I know I’m going to sound like a broken record because everyone says this but I can’t believe it’s already 2019! But here we are in 2019 and SO many things I thought were going to happen in 2018 didn’t happen. Big things I’ve been praying about for years that I thought for sure this.is.the.year still didn’t happen. 

The beauty to that is, my faith is stronger.

The other unforeseeable great thing about it is, I know the reward will be that much sweeter. And to be honest, I’ve grown to love that this is part of my story because I can picture (one day) talking about the things I prayed for and it being an encouragement to others who have been playing the “waiting game” for a long time and are tempted to give up.

I find encouragement in those stories all the time and I look forward to one day passing on that encouragement. I think the one thing I have grown to learn is that the big things in life take 1,000 longer to get than you expected.  Can anyone else relate?

So switching gears, I never really do resolutions but then I looked at my blog from last year and found this post ?‍♀️ I hadn’t looked at it since I wrote it but I was presently surprised that I made the majority of it happen. The health one is still a work in progress but I started Whole30 9 days ago so technically right now I’m off everything I said I wanted to be (dairy, sugar, grains). However, I’ll only be on this diet for a few more days because Mike has been doing it with me but he’s going out of town this weekend for a sales meeting and won’t be staying on it… so neither will I. I’ve actually noticed a big difference in my skin since cutting out dairy so I plan on going back to the diet next week.

Thanks for reading!

Anyone else feel the shift on IG? I started noticing it a year ago & then much more about 6 months ago.

This might be an unpopular opinion, but I think this platform is on its way out. People are over the algorithm games and censorship. It’s all fake. The number of “followers” an account has means nothing. Social media is due for a reset and I think it’s coming. ❤️🍁 #thoughtoftheday #falloutfits
