2014 In Review

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

I think that 2014 was as close to a complete about-face of a year as I've ever had.  I imagine there will be years to come that will make this one look small in comparison, but while reflecting back on the year, I feel like I've never had so many pivotal moments in such a quick succession.

For one, I start the year at a job that I hated.  I was bored, unchallenged, and very very unhappy.  By February I had found my current job and oh how different it is.  Not only do I feel busy, challenged, and happy, but I would even venture to say that I love what I'm doing.  I never thought I'd say that about ANY job, but I definitely didn't think I'd be saying it saying it at any point in 2014.

I also entered 2014 fresh off another round of online dating.  I think it was around January that I decided not to renew my membership because I had found someone that I really connected with and hoped would stick around.  Now, a year later, we are still happily together.  I guess he didn't quite "stick around" in the traditional sense, but over the past year our relationship has grown into something that I don't think I could have anticipated at the end of 2013.

I also started off 2014 in a fairly depressed state.  The aforementioned job, the multiple not so great Match dates I went on before I met my boyfriend, and the general feeling of stalling in life was not the best combo for a successful new year.  Today however all of that has change and I'm not sure if I've ever been happier. 

There were of course some other changes that weren't as fun or exciting, but I think they've contributed just as much to get me to where I am today.  There was the deployment to deal with and also moving back home for the millionth time.  Luckily the END of the deployment is going to make for an amazing 2015, and the year of basement living will allow me to get a good jump start on savings for the next year.

With so many big things happening in this past year it's hard to imagine what could come in 2015, but at least I know that whatever it may bring I've got a great year behind me and can hopefully keep that momentum going!
