Whew… When I think back on 2017 the only word that comes to mind is WHIRLWIND. I’ve experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly this year in ways I never expected. At the beginning of 2017, I envisioned the end of it to look a lot different than it does right now. It’s funny how I had this year (and honestly my life moving forward) planned out in what I thought was perfect, but God was like nahhhh girl watch this!!
Basically this year has been a huge reminder that God’s plan is so much bigger than my own. He knocked me off my feet in the best way, and I am so thankful. Rather than making my own plans and mapping out the rest of my life, I should have listened more to His plan.
Which brings me to my New Years resolution:
While I am going to try to eat better, work out more, and all of that stuff… My real resolution is to actually and actively trust in God’s plan and follow Him down the path that is right for me. Not gonna lie, I thought I was doing this for a while, but looking back I think I was only listening to His plan when it looked a lot like mine (which it obviously doesn’t work that way). So here I am in 2018, actually listening and letting God guide me. I have a feeling His plan will be way better and more perfect than I could have ever planned by myself.
Looking back on this year it’s crazy how many exciting life changes happened:
- I graduated from Louisiana Tech with my Masters degree.
- I left my college town after living there for 5 years.
- I packed my bags and moved to Dallas all by myself.
- I got my little dog, Tillie.
- I got my first big girl job.
- I STARTED THIS BLOG!
So many awesome experiences to look back on in 2017. While it was a whirlwind and knocked me off my feet a little, I am grateful for this year and all that I have learned.
Thank you to all who have supported me, read my posts, shopped my outfits, or just commented on a photo. I am living a dream and love sharing this with all of you! I have so many plans for this little blog in 2018, and I hope you’ll stay with me on this journey!
I am so ready to see all the new changes 2018 is going to bring! Here’s to hoping it’s the best year yet!! What New Years resolutions have you set for this year?
