Over the past few days I have been reading some incredible posts from many different bloggers sharing their reflections from the past year and their resolutions for the upcoming year. So, I thought I would sit down and try and write my own New Year’s post and found that I am not ready to write it yet.
This past year has been one of the biggest adventures of my life. As a family, we moved from Ottawa, Canada to New York City. To say that the two cities are different would be a tad understated. It has been life changing. I left my career, extended family and cherished friends to embark on a new and exciting life. I have never looked back, well, maybe once or twice… 😉
As this new year starts I feel like I am finally just settling in. We are building a home here and we are part of the community. I am finding my place. I guess that is why I am not quite ready to reflect on it just yet. It still seems too big, too overwhelming. Too new. We are doing it, all of us. Ron is loving his job, the girls are growing into confident little New Yorkers and I am slowly finding my way and that is okay. We are embracing this new life and that is what it is all about.
So, instead of reflecting and looking back I am going to look forward. Move forward. I am going to spend some quality time with me and figure out the things that I would like to pursue. A new job- yes! Running a 1/2 marathon- yes! Eating Healthier- yes! Worrying less- I wish! Figuring it all out- a work in progress!
One day, when I am emotionally ready I will sit down and reflect on this past year but not yet, I am just not there. One thing that I do know is how incredibly lucky I am to have such an amazing family, wonderful friends as well as the opportunities that have been given to me. Here’s to a year of endless new possibilities. Dream big my friends and remember “it’s always an adventure!” 🙂 xoxo
