reflections on 2019

Can you believe that 2019 is almost over? I sure can’t and I cannot get over how fast the time goes each year because time just keeps accelerating.

I would guess that most of the time bloggers of a businesss would go over all of their triumphs, list their great successes, and show only what was good that happened……..not me. I want to be authentic, transparent, and just well….real.

I made a few mistakes this year that gave me grief and caused me to re-evaluate everything. I mean everything. I would be a liar if I didn’t admit that thinking of quitting went through my mind a couple times. And yet, every time I get into the word of God he mentions “never giving up.” I so need that and I am so in awe of how he puts these reminders in my lap through his word.

I want to be thankful for the lessons I’ve learned this year and yet I cannot wait for this year to end because the lessons were hard. And its funny because we all think Dec. 31st and Jan. 1st do not coincide with each other. Somehow a new number aka 2020 will make things all better. Well I hope so! The thought that keeps coming up is the value I need to take away from the hard lessons I have learned. And maybe you can learn from them too.

1- do not ever be afraid of another company you are doing work for.

This might sound silly, but when you are a small company like me, big companies are intimidating and so… They seem to be the end all and be all. But that is not true. If they ask you to do something it doesn’t mean you have to do it and it doesn’t mean you have to do it for free. There are consequences to every choice but this one seems obvious, now that I made the mistake already.

2- do not believe someone when they say they have your back, and they have talked to you a few times, and live 2000 miles away.

I am a truth teller, and some people are not. That is not good news for someone like me. I think everyone is telling me the truth and I realize that some are not. I think if I tell the truth then others do too, but that is just not the case, which makes me extremely sad. I want everyone to mean what they say.

3- do not, NOT start your day without opening the bible and praying.

I started doing this again recently when I arrive at work. I want it to be the first thing I do before I start in on my to do’s. I can say that I have been forgetting this last week, and this morning I was reminded that I need to keep it up. Jesus is telling me good stuff, I am learning, he is always there no matter what, and he loves me unconditionally. Wow guys I am so thankful for this, so thankful. Jesus always has my back and he always is present. Right now I am really wanting some answers on things but even though I don’t have the answers yet, I know he will answer in His time.

These are only just the few of many things I learned in 2019……. and I am going to be glad when 2019 is over because we can start fresh again.

until then, your custom cabinet girl
