Here at Give Me My Crown Already, or maybe I should start using GMMCA, we like to celebrate occasions, all big and small. While I like to think we can start anew on all things good and fresh at any time, there’s something about the end of the year that makes you look back and reflect, as much as there’s something to looking towards a new year that makes you energized.
Having a blog really helps someone take a glance back at the past year!
A lot happened, as it seems to in life, most good, some sad, but they’ve all led me here.
The most popular post of the year was very clearly my open letter to Joy Behar after she blasted nurses for no reason.
Though my fame didn’t extend much farther than this post, it was still nice to have a brush of success. A preview of things to come, I hope. Though maybe I turned people off with my casual and totally innocent mocking of a faux-apocalypse scare.
For whatever reason, that I still do not understand, another popular post was the one that I entitled after a song.
This is one of the most-searched and most-linked to posts and I don’t even remember what it’s about other than mentioning that song.
We had a lot of fun with recipes this year, something that I hope to do even more of in 2016. Stir fry for example.
We also dedicated a lot of time to watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I can firmly tell you, there are no regrets.
Though I will tell you, there was a lot of hesitancy to start a new show so soon.
In the top two exciting things to happen in 2015, my sister and now brother-in law made things official and tied the knot this past June! I, of course, made a spectacular Maid of Honor, lacking only in humility.
What a perfect day it was with the weather, love, happiness, family, and friends!
Another of the top two most exciting things to happen to me, was when I decided to take a chance and make a change when it came to my professional life. Work is a huge part of how we live, love it, hate it, or grudgingly accept it, so we should make it count. I was miserable where I was and I was scared to move forward, but with a lot of support and a moment of blind courageousness, I took a chance. To get to work where I do now, with the people I’m working beside, and feeling as though I have a purpose, that is a blessing.
This all led to a significant moment in my life that has been building for the past four years when I finally woke up and realized I needed to take responsibility for my life and choices. As an early Christmas present, I took and passed the test that marks me a certified Personal Trainer and I am so so excited to finally get started.
2015 was a year with up’s and down’s and I’m very much choosing to reflect on all of the good in this post. I probably haven’t even gotten too deep into what this year offered me, but I’m so happy to have taken the time and opportunity to delve into it a bit so that I can truly leave 2015 feeling as though I lived through it with purpose, pleasure, and effort.
Take a minute of your day to do the same with your’s.
