Today is my wedding anniversary and just a day away from Christmas and I am so excited! 2019 is almost over and I have been reflecting on the year and honestly, I am thankful. The Lord has been good to me and my family I am just happy and grateful to be here today.
Let me start with a brief progress report regarding my health as well as some other updates about my life. In a nutshell, it has been good. No major crisis but a few minor ones which I have handled at home. Lots of rest and drinking water has done the trick but it’s all thanks to JESUS! Though I have had some complications with my eye caused by my sickle cell condition (story for another day), I am working on it.
Throughout this year, I am happy with how I have learnt and grown and challenged myself. I have become intentional with whatever I do and I have set goals that I have accomplished and I am so happy about that. I have done my best to be a better daughter, sister, wife, friend, employer etc…I am still not there but working on it. I have worked on getting my finances in check…I love anything finances (I really don’t know why but I just find joy working on budgets and achieving financial goals). I have also tried to lose weight…and that has been an up and down kinda relationship…which I am definitely still working on.
There were challenges I had to deal with but I am grateful for them because they came with lessons but most importantly, they taught me to lean on God more than ever. I have so many things I wanted to achieve that I just couldn’t get done, but I am learning to trust the journey and I know when it is time, I will get to accomplish all of them. I am also very thankful for the people who have been there for me throughout this year. From my family, to my work colleagues to my very powerful study group members. Everyone has been amazing!
I am very grateful for this blog and for you all who read and share and like and send me feedback. I am so happy that I get to write and share my story with you. I have not always been as consistent as I would like to be but I am going to do better. I am just so excited to see where this will lead to and I can’t wait to share all of that with you.
God has been good. 2019 was a good year…and I look forward to an even better year in 2020.
