I wasn’t originally planning on doing a year in review recap since I didn’t start A Couple of Dashes until August, but after reading a few by other bloggers (Lake Shore Runner, Meals and Miles and Run Eat Repeat), I decided I would be sad if I didn’t have one to look back at next year. My year was filled with some crazy highs and lows. I lost some old friends and made some new ones, let go of some dreams that could never fully make it to fruition, but also saw some dreams I never could have imagined before come true. So here’s a look back at all the shenanigans I got into in 2014! Let’s get to it!
I don’t know if you all have realized, but I’ve been on a bit of a self-help/motivational kick lately. Shocker, I know! I heard about the book “Daily Love: Growing into Grace” when I was listening to Wake Up with Taylor on my way into work one morning and the interview with author, Mastin Kipp completely reeled me in. I’d heard about The Daily Love before, but this was the first I’d heard about a book. In the interview, the book was described as being for the person who had hit rock bottom and needed direction in rebuilding their life. I wouldn’t say I was necessary at “rock bottom,” but I definitely had some stuff going on in my life that I needed some clarity and direction on, so I decided to pick up the book after work and see what all the fuss was about. Couldn’t hurt right?
