As the Facebook resolution posts and Groupons for boot camp and yoga flood into my life, I want to really reflect on what a great year 2012 was.
This was a year for the books. Big things and little things that added up to big things are what made the year incredible. Let me reminisce real quick.
I ran my first 5k. A goofy picture of me featured here.
I got a managerial position at my favorite place of work.
I bailed on studying for my biochem final to take a 4th of July trip to San Diego with a couple good friends. (No regrets.)
I formed tight friendships with my classmates.
I won at bingo for the first (and probably last) time ever.
I graduated cum laude.
I moved to Texas (and brought a little piece of Vegas with me).
I started my dietetic internship. And grad school!
2012 brought some of the most significant changes into my life thus far. If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that God’s timing is ALWAYS right. Anyone remember the E! True Hollywood stories when the celebrity would start the show off with saying, “You think you know, but you have no idea”? That’s how I feel about my own life sometimes. I think I have things figured out; a plan that I consider perfect for myself. But then I step back and remember that my life is in the hands of the Creator and whatever He has in store for me is lightyears better than any amateur plan I can concoct. God gives you things when you’re ready and not a second before.
Most days, my heart feels like it’s about to burst from the amount of joy the Lord has blessed me with. The blessings have been constant. I found out how truly different life can be when your focus is in the right place (hint: the right place is not yourself) ((note to self: always remember this)).
In the new year, I hope to dig in to the things that really move me. Obtain and keep that can’t stop, won’t stop attitude. Love and give unconditionally. And maybe get a six-pack. Just kidding. Kind of.
