Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season filled with love and gratitude. I am eternally grateful for the wonderful time I spent with family and decided that friends are now those who I see regularly not only but those who deliberately make time to stay connected and supportive.
For a big change that happened in 2021 was the choice I made to become a mother. As a result some people no longer dreamed the same dream as me and thereby moved away but more importantly I chose to ask for what I needed more frequently and began to see who showed up. As a result more and more time was spent with my immediate family and we grew as a unit. I am forever grateful to them and my heart has expanded to include more time for them too. And more and more time was spent with other families with children who could understand the phase I am in. I realize just how true it is that life stages truly determine friendships too. I am grateful for friends who are there for seasons, reasons, and lifetimes but most importantly to grow with others through times of change as well as times of stability.
Here's to a wonderful 2022 filled with family, friends, and lots and lots of love!
