As 2014 comes to a close I'd like to share some of the things I've learned, been blessed with, and went through in 2014; and my hopes for 2015.
In 2013 I had my first baby and went through a painful break-up with my daughter's father just days after giving birth. That pain and stress lingered into the beginning of 2014. But, in 2014 I've learned to forgive and move on with my life. Life is too precious and exciting to let things and people keep you down. I've learned how to let go of the negative people in my life. My experiences have made me a stronger person. One of the most important things that I've learned is that you teach people how to treat you by what you allow. People come into our lives for either a reason, a season, or a lifetime. We often get those people mixed up and because of it we pay some serious consequences.
However, 2014 has been a blessing. I was blessed with a niece, 2 jobs, my own apartment, a car, new friends, good health, and a lot of great memories. Even an oil change has lead to the start of something beautiful with someone wonderful. That experience alone has showed me that God has a sense of humor. (That's a story for another day).
I'm going back to school in 2015 and I am ready to finish this degree and move to a place with more opportunities. My hopes for 2015 are just to stay healthy, keep God first, continue to take care of my daughter, and NOT let anyone steal my joy! What have you been blessed with in 2014?! What are your hopes for 2015?!
Enjoy these photos of my life in 2014! God Bless!
