#Reverb14: At the Start

My favorite part of December is the #Reverb blog challenge.

This year, though, is an important one. I have only done 1 blog post all year. Not that I'm super consistent with my blogging in the first place, but only 1 is not normal. and its been a challenging year. When I needed to be writing to releieve my stress, instead I ignored it. So - lets start #Reverb14 with a bang!
At the start: Where did you start 2014?  Give us some background on this year.

Wow! The start of 2014 was a crazy ride. Literally! With a job offer I couldn't refuse, we packed up everything we had, Hubby in the moving truck and me in the car, and we moved back to Washington, after only a short 6 months living in Idaho. Leaving was one of the hardest things I've ever done. When I was offered the job to come back, it took almost 2 weeks to make a decision. As we started on our journey, it only took 1 hour for me to start crying as we drove down the mountain. I was leaving my mom, my lil sister, my brother. The people I loved the most and had wanted to be closer to and suddenly I was leaving. It was definitely rough. But I got through it. I threw myself into my work to try and ease my stress.

Then February came. I've faced a lot of hardships in my life and gotten through every one of them. But February was the roughest thing I've ever experienced. After months of trying, Caveman and I were finally pregnant. And then suddenly we weren't. It was the hardest thing I'd ever experienced.

Its not how I wanted to start my year. Its not what I wanted to carry with me all year either. The start of the year followed me through the rest of the year and have partially held me back. Its time for them to move on though. Its time for me to move on. I want to refresh my mind and my outlook with what is left of 2014 and begin 2015 with the heart, mind, and courage I know I have inside me!
