2013…You have been quite a crazy year. I looked back at this post and can’t help but laugh at how 12 months ago, I had NO clue the roller coaster year I would have.
In a nutshell, here is what I was hoping for in 2013… “Anticipate that God is going to do immeasurably more than I can imagine in my life. Anticipate that I will walk through life with purpose and passion. Anticipate that great things are ahead!”
Some amazing opportunities have come my way this year. I’m working on some projects that are stretching me beyond belief. These are things that I would have never imagined doing. This fall, I started proofreading for Scarlet Heart Magazine…again, this is something I would have never imagined being a part of and I love it! I’ve had the privilege of writing for some different websites, which is INSANE to me. I’m planning some crazy events that have been dreams for years. There have been friendships that have grown and some that have run their course. This year I really have experienced so much.
Loss and gain.
Failure and how to regroup.
Frustration and excitement.
This year has taught me over and over that the negative doesn’t have to dictate the outcome. Sometimes things just don’t work out the way we think they should or in the time that we want. I know that I don’t want to stay stuck in the ICK, I want to always have a spirit of anticipation. I don’t want to let disappointment paralyze me. I want to keep moving forward. Surprises can happen around the next corner if we just keep moving forward. New directions come as we set out on this journey of life. Anticipate that the best is yet to come and you will be surprised at the adventures that come your way!
