2015 in 12 Images

NEW YEARS EVE

The day that everyone shares their reflective Facebook posts. I know these can sometimes become annoying, you find yourself combing through memories for those "post worthy" things to brag about. I get that. I'm personally working to break the habit of always trying to one up myself. It's amazing how easy it is right after a personal "upgrade", we can go from "Omigosh, this apartment is so much nicer than our last one" — to — "Ugh, I can't wait until we can have more space, nicer things."

Usually I hear the words of comparison, complaining, ungratefulness as they come out of my mouth and feel how ugly they sound. I want to be able to just enjoy what I have in the present and not constantly be thinking about how much better tomorrow could be.

As much as these reflective "Cheers to what the next year brings!" posts can be repetitive — I do think it is important to reflect on the good that happened in 2015. Remind myself, look how far you have already come in just 1 year's time. The challenges you never thought you'd overcome, and here you are standing on the other side of it. 

2015 was a year of enjoying earned stability and creating our own adventures.
