There’s something awesome in the word “new”. The definition has many meanings, but in this case it’s a fresh start of a brand-new year of possibilities to create joy. Write new chapters, have new adventures, meet new people, go new places, and see where the year takes you.
Before we proceed further into 2019, it’s always a good time to reflect on the previous year. For our family, we survived multiple job changes, a relocation across country, changing high schools for our teenager, and the loss of a beloved pet. Sometimes life is challenging, and it’s those challenges where strength is found that can prepare us for growth. We are excited to be settled in a new city, creating new friends, and finding new places.
Some people, including myself, use daily affirmations or quotes to provide support and encouragement. There’s a few I’d like to share with you. I suggest finding a few for yourself to keep around as reminders when challenges arise.
