New Year, New Me... Goodbye 2015

Does anyone else dislike that saying? New Year, new me... What does that even mean? Yes, it is a new year (as I would say in a preschool setting, we said goodbye 2015 and hello 2016). A brand new year. However, I'm still me. I'm not new. 2015 has changed me. I have grown, I have stepped outside of my comfort zone in many ways, but I am not "new". Maybe I can change the saying to fit better, New Year, New Me A Changed Me. I like it.

The above verse has been my life verse for the entire year. At the start of 2015, I knew that I needed to make some changes. I was stressed all the time to the point of physical and mental pain. I cared way more about what others thought about me. I never made time for friends and really never stepped out of my comfort zone. I realized that even though I wasn't really that happy and I was in almost constant pain, I was comfortable there. I was content in the constant state of discomfort. Sounds crazy, right? It truly was. 2015 came and I decided, something has got to give. I can not and will not do this anymore. I stepped out. 

I signed up to be an Independent Distributor for It Works Global! Click here to learn more. 
I changed my job(which was a heartbreaking decision to make, but it was time). I no longer work full time and now have more time at home in the mornings with the hubby, which also means I will be able to go back to school to take a few classes! 
I have been doing more social things and inviting others into my home more. 
I stepped away from some people and grew closer to others. 
2015 was hard, but it was life changing. 

My goals for 2016 are much of the same as 2015. I want to expand on what I have already accomplished. I want to grow even more. I want better things for the hubs and I. I want to see my friends more and make even better memories this year than I have in the past.
