So IT Begins




Well... Here it is. Day two of 2015. This past year flew by.  So much happened, changed, and also stayed the same. I learned so much about communication, determination and mostly myself. I went from teaching to running my own business, to feeling like the business I had was not what I wanted. I ran a half marathon in 1:54:37 (16 minutes faster than my previous best). I made new friends in my quiet little town and parted ways with others that had been in my life for a long time. I lost my temper, truly yelled, for the first time- I realized I really liked sticking up for myself and discovered being polite doesn't mean being a pushover.  I learned that being outdoors is the best remedy for all things and that being physically strong also makes me fell mentally and emotionally strong. I explored the west coast for the first time and fell in love with Seattle!!  I learned that communication really is the most important part of any relationship and can either save one or end it.  I learned what it was like to make hard decisions and that sometimes, I really suck at it... Best of all though, I'm starting to really learn who I am, what I believe, want, wish and need.  I even learned to end my worst habit of all- berating myself, about past decisions, personality traits, or self-perceived body flaws.  2014 saw a lot of tears, stress and upsets, but, it also saw a lot of growth. I don't think I've come to tears yet, with the fact that it's 2015... That a new chapter is actually starting and that in just 17 very short days I will be 30 (gasp!!!).  

I have chosen to re-start this blog, after more than a 2 year absence because I want to have a place to keep track of my thoughts, goals, mishaps and progress. I don't have a game plan or know exactly what the content will be, but I really look forward to watching it all develop.  

Happy New Year friends!  
with love,
JENI
