Hey love bugs!! Happy New Year!!!! Are you excited for 2016? I am! I truly believe that this year is the “turnaround”! I have been feeling this way for months…I just feel like God is going to shift & turn some things around for me this year…I’m so excited! He is always so crazy faithful! So if you’re not ready, then get ready for God to blow your mind this year!!! Yaaaayyyy!!!!
So…I’m also excited about something else too! Guess what today is??? (Drumroll) It’s Coco’s Couch 2nd anniversary (Blog-iversary)!!!!!!
I cannot believe that it’s been 2 years!!! It was 2 years ago that I re-launched this site out of obedience to God. It has not been easy! What many don’t understand, is that blogging is WORK! Over the past couple years I have overcome many obstacles while doing this:
- People close to me walking away from me
- Lack of financial resources
- Outdated equipment
- A period of no internet (but was still blogging)
- Trying to create/maintain balance (still trying to do this) between ministry involvement at church, my 9-5, social activities, me time, & blogging
- Illness & injury
- Self doubt
I can go on but I digress. Through it all, I wouldn’t change a thing because obedience is better than sacrifice. The number of testimonies from those who support and have been blessed by the blog totally out weighs my obstacles!
With that being said, from the bottom of my heart I say: THANK YOU!!! Thank you for the support, comments, shares, likes, prayers, and words of encouragement! I am committed to this blog (my baby), and the vision God has given me for this blog. I am committed to creating a community of women that embrace their perfect imperfections, that embrace God’s love for them, that share His love with everyone, that are committed to growing and learning with one another to be better, more healthy women.
So bring on 2016!!! Here’s to another year of blogging….another year of embracing our perfect imperfections!!
Love each of you!!
