I started 2014 with a lot of hopes and dreams and goals and all those great shiny ideas and things. 2014 did not go at all how I thought it would though. (When does anything ever go how you think it will?)
I spent the first half of the year constantly sick. I was at the doctor every few weeks, had my first ER visit in March and surgery in May (gallbladder removed). Even after the surgery I was still sick a lot. I spent a lot of time at home alone because well I didn’t feel good enough to be out and about and I was always afraid of getting sick in public. I have always struggled with anxiety and depression so being sick, in pain and just not able to really live my life, it caused me to fall into one of the worst depressions of my life from August through mid October.
There were several things that have changed my life in 2014 and most of them just in the past 2-3 months. I am grateful for everything that I went through this year both the good and bad. I always like to reflect on what I have learned year. I narrowed it down to seven big things that changed my life and that I will remember most about 2014.
