Friday Hug: New Beginnings

Hey Everyone,

I hope you all are as excited as I am that it is finally friday!  I have been on the struggle bus this week and felt really tired, which I am attributing to allergies at least in part.  I’ve missed a week or so of blogging with all the busy things happenings including graduation for my brother and some big work events. But I’m back and my Friday hug is a bit on the personal side this week.

Over the past few months I have been going through some relationship struggles and work challenges, which have definitely left me feeling in need of a new beginning.  In a few weeks I will be turning 28, which may seem young but also induces some anxiety about where I am in my life right now and how I want to invest my time and energy going forward.  So…I thought would make a list of 28 goals to accomplish in my 28th year as inspiration to take a more positive approach to the change.  I am definitely going to need help staying accountable, so if you wish to be a hiking/running buddy, food sampler, or event-goer with me I would love the company 🙂
