I was reading through my new year’s resolutions post from last year and it kind of shocked me. I had totally forgotten what I wrote and it pretty much summed up my exact feelings about this year. I felt like the year had been kind of crummy and I felt tired and grumpy. Nothing has changed. I didn’t do so well at accomplishing my goals for the year and I’m still feeling like things just didn’t go as planned.
Luckily, I started going through each of my blog posts from this past year to do a little recap and there were so many fun, wonderful, amazing things that had slipped my mind. The year wasn’t such a huge bust after all.
There are still a lot of things that I need to change about myself, things our family could be better at, and things that I really want for our family that just aren’t happening right now, but looking through these words, photos, and videos from the year make me smile so much. The boys said and did so many hilarious things. I accomplished so much with my knitting, crochet, and my Etsy shop. And I made some amazing new friends that probably don’t even realize how much they have helped me and how much they mean to me.
I don’t know what it’s going to take to give myself the kick in the pants that I need, but as long as there are memories like these along the way, I think I’ll be okay.
Here are some of my favorite posts from 2014:
