So 2010 has come and gone. It’s been a year of firsts and lasts. I’ve seen people I love get married, engaged, have kids, pass away, accept Christ, go through major health issues, and move on in their life. Here’s the love down on what I went through:
January- Was a hard month. One of loneliness, lack of accountability, and personal hardships. An eating disoder that I thought I had battled, haunted me again. This time someone picked up on it, and made me seek help.
February- School started back and I was reconnected with my accountability, I took on a second job
March- Depression. Full on depression hit. Lack of motivation, no desire, and the suicidal thoughts that once plagued my life began coming again.
April- Stepped foot into an airport for first time in my life. Reached the lowest point in my life and tried to drown myself in a tub.
May- I got through the last month of school and made it home. Said goodbye to a few friend’s who were graduating.
June- Went to Myrtle Beach for the first time. Began my normal nanny summer routine. Learned how to drive a boat.
July- Learned how to drive a manual truck. Continued with the kid craziness. Built one of the largest slipnslide’s I’d been on with some awesome kids
August- Watched Taylor Hancock and several other’s be baptized. Went back to school and started on leadership staff
September- Began to feel called home. Berea was good but felt like I needed to be home. Went to World Equestrian Games. Lil sis accepted Christ
October- Went to Third Day,Toby Mac, MWSmith concert. UGA vs. UK game. Applied to transfer to Berry College.
November- Turned 21, went on first date in entire life, first relationship. Accepted at Berry College
December- Neil has a stroke,Finished at Berea College, candle light service at Christmas Eve eve at Oak leaf Church, and was dumped by boyfriend.
2010 had it’s ups and downs. No I wasn’t as strong this year as I thought I was going to be. 2011 isn’t going to be a year of resolutions or goals, it’s of a new mindset one that came from God. It’s to be strong in HIM and not give up HOPE.
