Recapping 2019 and looking ahead to 2020
Feel free to join us!
out with the OLD: 2019
While researching to do this post I realized 2018’s life was pretty crappy as well. 2018 I was able to figure out that something wasn’t right and in 2019 I figured out what that was. I have Anxiety/OCD and Depression. It’s ok because slowly, on this day in December, I am getting back on my feet. I always thought it would take just a little bit of medicine and I would spring back but it takes a lot more than that.
This year my blogging and reading suffered the most. My design, is still there but with my real job I am just not finding the want to do more of it at night when I get home. My day job is exhausting and it’s sucking the design right out of my body. If I was able to do this from home and just Limabean Designs, I would be 100% in but it’s not easy to do with a Job all day and coming home at night to design for clients. It leaves no time for me, my family or household needs. So I have pushed back design but I am not out of it, I still have my tour ladies that I love doing banners for and if anyone needs anything I am always here to help. I do have plans for next year.
This year just didn’t work out like I had hoped, I was thinking this year would have been better but it wasn’t…I am not giving up yet because Jan 1st is a new chapter and I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for me.
in with the NEW: 2020
Life has a way for making things interesting and also keeping you on your toes. I am ready for 2020, while I wish 2019 was a better year. I am hoping 2020 is the year of come backs. I am still planning to take my time and do things slow but I am going to get back into blogging and reading more. Plus I will be going back to what I loved most about blogging. Just being able to express and enjoy myself. I love all my friends I have made but I blog for me and having a place to express and get my thought out. I plan to do that more. Reading is one of my favorite things and so is gaming. So I hope to have a lot more of that in the future of Because Reading.
Limabean Designs isn’t going anyplace while I might not be doing as much as I would like, I am planning on a few things. Etsy downloads, Print on Demand shops and Premade Cover Designs. All these things are things I love to do and one thing I always forget I am good at is the organizing of stuff. I think it’s time I did some design things for organizing your life, blog, whatever. I am also trying to see if I can find more blog tour companies that need banner designs because I honestly love doing those.
I can’t promise that life wont get in the way again this year but I am happy to know that I am in a better frame of mind and looking forward to what 2020 has to offer. I know some will be good and some will be bad but I think I will be ok.
Thank you again to those that stuck around and checked in on me every so often. I appreciate it, I look forward to a very productive 2020! *Fingers crossed*
Now let’s chat favorite books of 2019
Favorite Books of 2019
You know I wasn’t able to read a lot this year because I sucked as a human. However the books I did read I had quite a few that I really enjoyed. I wasn’t big on 5 star reviews this year but I did few. One of my most loved was Daddy Duke, that series is one of my favorites and the build up to get to Daddy Duke was driving me crazy. I was so nervous I would be disappointed but it delivered big time. Now I want to read it again…lol
While I love the hot, I also love them proper. Proper Romance is one of my favorite genres, sometimes a girl wants a strong build with a solid kiss at the end and sometimes a girl likes it over the top, completely ridiculous and right to the point. 🙂
What are you looking forward to in 2020?
Thanks for stopping by to Check out my recap of 2019 and what’s to come in 2020
