I have always tried to be as honest and transparent as possible on this blog, but what I haven’t shared yet is that over the last month, I’ve had a major case of the holiday blues. It’s no secret that 2016 was hard, but I thought adjusting to life after surgery would be easier. I am super goal oriented, so being realistic and telling myself it’s OK I didn’t meet all my goals for 2016 was tough. Now that 2017 has started, I’m ready to put those negative thoughts away and start the year off on a new page. I love that this is a new year, and I can start out fresh. I can say my surgery was last year now.
That said, my word for 2017 is hope. Starting out 2017, I have so much hope that this year will be so much better than the last. I’m hopeful about our plans (more on that later) and about what the future holds for us. Last year, I wrote about the three goals I have for every year, and those will never change. Obviously, I’ve struggled a bit with the “stay positive” goal, but that’s slowly changing.
So here’s to hope. Let’s do this, 2017.
