As my husband and I were listening to sports radio while making dinner the other night, the host asked this question at the end of the segment “what will be your story in 2018?” Hhhmmm, what an interesting question. I never looked at the new year in this way before. It made me think, what will be my story?
As I pondered this question, so many ideas flooded my head. Will it be a new career? Move to a different city? Change someone’s life? It was a bit overwhelming. Then I realized that I don’t need to figure it out instantly. My focus right now at this moment is myself. Selfish? Maybe. I think it’s important to make yourself the priority sometimes. With work, relationships, and families, it’s so easy to lose yourself.
The last couple of years have been an emotional roller coaster with several miscarriages, moving, unemployment, deaths, and depression. I vowed to take care of myself which meant getting back in shape, eating right, evaluate my career, accept the things that I can’t change, and just getting back to me. My own happiness will be my story in the beginning. We’ll have to see how this story unfolds, but I’m determined to make this year a positive, knock it out of the park year.
What will be your story in 2018? Let’s go Eagles! Fly Eagles, fly!
