The title of this post was taken from the song Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band.
New Years Eve 2015. I spent time at home surrounded by family. We ate good food, played games, talked about our hopes and dreams and everything in-between. It was low key and nothing fancy, but being with the ones I love was a great way to ring in the new year. As I look back over 2015 there are moments that I'm super proud of, moments that I regret, and things I would change. I set goals last year that I didn't achieve while others I worked really hard on. This year I want to work on being okay with where I am in my life right. this. minute. I spend a lot of time beating myself up for things I haven't accomplished yet. I focus on the things I struggle with instead of looking at all the great things I do and have. I need to shift my thought process and be okay with who I am. I have a wonderful family and they love me just the way I am. Don't get me wrong, I have goals to improve upon things in my life, but while I'm working on those things I am also giving myself permission to be okay with how far I've come.
This morning the kids got up and Tyler made cinnamon roll waffles, and Blake curled up in my arms. I'm truly blessed.
