New year. New adventures.

“And suddenly you know… It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.” – unknown


{new year :// the first day or few days of a year in any various calendars}


2016 was rapidly coming to an end and in turn 2017 was just around the corner. Emotions and memories flooded the young girl as she reflected on her year. Her life had been flipped completely upside down but she wouldn’t have had it any other way. 2016 was a year exploring and discovering herself. By no means was the journey easy but it was well worth the tears, sleepless nights and broken boundaries of comfort zones. The young girl reflected on all that the year was but her wheels were already turning for the new year.  


She sat in the oversized, cozy chair with a warm cup of tea in hand and closed her eyes imagining all that this new start had to offer. A wave of nervous yet excited anticipation washed over her. Shortly after the holidays came to a close, classes would begin and she would be on her path to a business management degree. Slightly unsure if this is the path intended for her to take the young girl was willing to dip her toes back into the water. The coming days would consist of learning the ropes of a new job, studying intensely and balancing the monster in between. She also imagined expanding her writing skills. Composing a book of her mental illness journey, raising awareness and breaking down stigmas. An abundance of florals and photography flooded her “free” time bringing pure joy and happiness to the people around her. A quaint little apartment with her best friend and a space to call her own. Little touches of her style scattered across the living space. She would travel to new places and experience new things. Exploring the world and following her Jesus more and more. There were more runs to be had and longer meditations to lose herself in. The young girl could conjure up dreams all day.    


A new year meant endless opportunities to grow and learn. In a way it felt kinda scary and overwhelming but the young girl knew she had a fantastic team behind her. With a little bit of tea and a whole lot of Jesus the young girl was ready to tackle the next chapter of her story.


Isaiah 43:18-19 – Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
