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!
