To be honest, I’m not sure where, to begin with, a 2018 review. I’m not fond of doing the full year in review, and I don’t make New Year’s resolutions.
I’m weird I know, but I believe I should resolve to do better each day in every area of my life. Each night I review how my day went so that I know where I need to try harder.
Looking back over the year there were many blessings. My grandmother, a woman of great faith who had been severely ill for a long time, passed away peacefully in February. She had a beautiful send-off and is now at peace.
My husband and I were blessed with buying a house and moving to a new community. This was a 2 fold blessing. Homes were selling with competing offers before we could get down to view them and moving meant we had to get new doctors. In September my new doctor diagnosed me with C-PTSD, and in November the internal medicine specialist diagnosed me with C-PTSD. It may sound weird to consider this a blessing but with a correct diagnosis comes an opportunity to heal. With diagnosis comes validation on how I’ve felt, and most importantly I am able to find my freedom from the trauma and chains.
My writing has been my biggest blessing through all this. May brought publishing excitement with Timothy’s Adventures hitting stores.
I’m working on getting more comfortable blogging and using social media. I often forget to update Goodreads, so here’s hoping I can remember this year! Reading is important to me both for work and pleasure.
My goals in 2019 are self-care and to continue loving writing no matter where I am. I love my new fantasy plot, the characters, and the world I’ve built.
Here’s to 2019 being full of peace, healing, love, and fun!
