2016 Word

So, I couldn’t keep it quite any longer!

I stole this from someone else in a fitness group I’m in but it’s perfect for life: BALANCE!

Here is the definition I’m following:

mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc.

I’m excited to start the new year. 2015’s choice of “HAPPY” was the best decision I have ever made, I have to say. I’m so glad I did. I decided to change my own outlook on life completely and since then, I’m finding I am more happy!

Happy Saturday!

I haven’t blogged about my Word of the Year lately. Not because I haven’t been happy. No, I have been SO freaking happy. Things have started to definitely look up. In the past month or so, I’ve gotten a new job, I’ve lost a good chunk of weight (I’m now 1.2 pounds away from my 120lb goal! Then I’m hoping to maybe lower it to 115, and if I can’t, I’ll at least be able to start TONING what I have). I’m feeling more comfortable in my skin. Josh and I are arguing less about stupid stuff. Now we argue about everything we agree with, which is quite hilarious.

Wednesday, Madi had her promotion to 7th grade, aka middle school. Thursday was the last day of school! I have the weekend off! We’re going camping next weekend. I have a guaranteed 40 hours every two weeks, even though I am working all 7 days starting Monday, 😆

I have a great boss, and I even sometimes get a chance to work with Jamie. Seriously, I’m LOVING my life lately.

I just haven’t felt like blogging about it. I don’t know why. It’s just … feeling like I’m almost bragging and I’m scared to jinx it.

But I am happy. Even when I’m crying because my baby girl is growing up, I’m happy with how beautiful she is, inside and out.

She’s also a really talented artist. She drew this Rainbow Dash from Equestria Girls, and it’s amazing! 😀
