"Best Of" 2017 & 2018 Word/Goals!

Best Nine on Instagram 

Happy New Year!
Does anyone else hate New Year's Eve as much as I do?  staying up late is not one of my favorite things. I'm old now. It's fine.

Obviously, writing on this blog was not a priority to me in 2017. I felt guilty about that, but, honestly, because my word for 2017 was patience, I decided to be patient with myself and let the blog go. And that's okay. I tried to document the best moments of the year, which, ultimately, is all you guys care about, right?

2017 was an interesting year. It definitely had some incredibly positive moments, but, also, it was a difficult one for me in many facets of my life. I am looking forward to starting a new year and having 2018 be even better!

Before I tell you my word for 2018 and some of my goals, I wanted to review the "Best Of" from 2017.

And now...my word for 2018 is: 





I am doing a lot of things in 2018 that I am excited, nervous and a little stressed about. I am starting my master's degree in educational leadership while teaching full time. I will be teaching teachers about the new science core and helping write the new core for the state of Utah. I am going to continue to deal with my PCOS and work on being healthy. We are working on starting a family (which is a battle with PCOS...and no, I don't want to go into it). I am singing in MCO Choir, continuing my Etsy shop of photography, and working on my church calling. I will be busy, but a lot of doing those things requires stepping outside of my comfort zone. I am working on using that courage to be more self-confident in my spiritual life, physical life, emotional life, my relationships, and my career. I am planning on traveling alone this summer and doing things to better myself, which, ultimately takes courage. I have some goals for 2018, but there are personal so I don't feel comfortable sharing them. But all of the goals surround my word: courage. I want to progress and grow this year!

Here's to 2018!!
