Happy New Year + 2014 Highlights

HAPPY NEW YEAR MY FRIENDS!  I want to take a moment and send you all of my love and good vibes.  I expect great things for you in 2015, but you must BELIEVE that good things are in store. It’s a matter of our mind-set 😉

Instead of focusing on “resolutions” for the New Year, I want to simply bask in gratitude for all of the amazing things that happened in 2014.  I figure if I just focus on the positive, the good vibes will carry over into 2015.  So here it goes, my Top 10 Most Amazing Moments of 2014…

1. Making Greatist Top Blogs of 2014 – Just before celebrating my 2 year blogiversary, I was so honored to make the Greatist list of best fitness and happiness blogs.

2. Undergoing a Successful Surgery & Maintaining a Healthy Body – After finding out that I had 13 uterine fibroids, I decided to have a laparoscoic myomectomy to have them all removed.  The surgery was a successful and I feel amazing.  God is good!

 

3. Watching my lil sis graduate from Texas Tech University & visiting my lil brother at University of Tampa – I had so many proud big sis moments this year.  I’m so grateful that my siblings are doing well and enjoying life.

Traveling to California for IDEA World Fitness Convention & Blog Fest – This was a huge turning point in my blogging journey.  I learned so many helpful tips and met so many members of the fitness blogging community.  I’ve already paid my deposit to attend again next summer – hope to see you there!
