Oh my goodness! This year has had so many highs and fortunately not many lows. Almost a year ago to the day I started the job that I am currently in and am so happy that I decided to apply for it. I loved the job that I had before and felt that I was really strong at it. However, this new position brings a new challenge every day and I am constantly learning. The team that I work with can vouch for me when I say that I am ALWAYS asking them questions. I feel like a sponge trying to absorb all of their knowledge and to be able to contribute to the team.
In December I moved out of my parents house and it has made everything in my life so much sweeter. The relationship that I have with my parents is so positive… they no longer need to tell me to clean my room or to get out of bed. When I see them I feel like we get more out of it then before since I was always around! I also like getting to learn to stand on my own two feet, decorate more than my bedroom and cook what ever I want. I love being in the kitchen!!
March brought about my first solo trip – all the way to Europe. I cannot wait for my next trip, I definitely have the travel bug now. It is too bad that it costs so darn much! In my travels, not only was I able to see so many things that I had dreamed about since I was a little girl, but I met some incredible people. Some of us have even talked about going on another trip together! Hopefully that will come to fruition!
This summer was one amazing moment after another. I got to see a lot of old friends, go camping, explore Alberta and make so many memories. If I could do it all over again, I am not sure that I would change a moment.
There have been so many wonderful people who I have been able to spend time with this year and I hope that I am able continue to build relationships with them. Friends, family, coworkers… there are countless incredible people out there.
As for the lows… hmm… this year has been pretty good! I feel like I need to count my blessings. I know that there are so many people who are worse off than I am. I didn’t lose anyone close to me, nor did I have any large hurdles to conquer. There is so much to be thankful for this year!
I want to hear from you guys! What was the best part the past year for you?
