Here we are. Already at New Years Eve, ready to welcome 2016 in about 11 hours.
2015 has been a great year. I've been reflecting a lot over the last few days, mostly because my jeep was broken and I have spent a lot of time alone in my apartment. Usually around this time of year, I find myself thinking about all the things I did over the past year, and what I want to change for next year. However, this year has been different - I've been thinking a lot about what other people did, and how I strive to be brave/smart/strong like they are.
Like Missy. Missy hates running, but she made a New Years resolution last year to run every single month. And before my very eyes, my friend who refused to run became a runner. She also got dealt two terrible dude situations, and handled it with the grace and maturity that Missy handles everything. I admire her.
And my brother. John wasn't happy in his marriage, but he hates conflict more than any person I know. He finally summoned up the courage, told his wife, and now he is so happy it's actually rather disgusting. He is proof that five minutes of courage can equal happiness.
There are so many people in my life who impress me every day. Amy, who is a single mom and still rocks it out at the gym every day, and wants to inspire others to do the same. Jordan, who somehow manages a schedule I can't even fathom and is the most positive, loving person I know. Zach, who puts his daughter above everything else. My sister Kate, who just rocks out everything she tries.
My New Years resolution is to continue to find people who are amazing and surround myself with them. And also to be more observant, cause I still lose my jeep every single time I park at Hyvee.
