I always try to end my years on a potive note; this year was unexpected.
My husband and I cut ties with an old friend of his back in 2015. He was not understanding of my husband and I’s relationship. He was upset my husband stopped going out drinking every night with the boys, he made different priorities (we were just engaged at the time.) This same guy posted on Instagram saying some rude things about how my husband was whipped and such, and we decided he was immature and we could no longer be friends with him anymore. As hard as it was on my husband he made the choice, because he loved me & didn’t want to see anybody disrespecting me.
We haven’t spoken to him since, however we do have mutual friends. Tuesday night we were out for dinner & our mutual friend asked for us to come by and have a few drinks with them. Then he realized this old friend was there and said “doesn’t railroaderwifey hate friend?” I told him to explain that I didn’t hate the friend just that I felt disrespected at the time. Our mutual friend then said that this friend wanted to aplogize for his actions.
We ended up going and he apologized to me for being rude & told me he didn’t realize that he was just upset with the change but didn’t realize that I wasn’t to blame for anything but that his friend was happy and getting married and he felt like a jerk for not doing what he was suppose to….support him.
In the end we had a great conversation with him my husband and I were wearying because we hadn’t spoken to him in a while.
My husband and I agreed we won’t be hanging out with him very often, here or there but it felt good to no longer have a grudge.
What’s you’re year end positive?

- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
My year end positive is that for the first time in several years I managed to stick to my New Year resolutions! Knowing I accomplished what I set out to do leaves a pretty good taste in my mouth 🙂

My year end positive is that I have remained devoted to a healthier life style by working out with a personal trainer 3x a week for over a month now and have also successfully weaned off of an anti-depressant that I’ve been on for years. Regaining control in my life is my positive.

My positives are I am married and no longer on anti depressants. Not much else has went right, we’ve spent a lot of time talking about 2017 so hoping for better.

So much has gone wrong this year, but 2017 is looking better: new job opportunities and looks like my youngest brother will be home and able to go to my wedding. There’s my silver lining.

My year end positive has two parts. One, I got married this year. Wonderful wedding, sweet honeymoon, and I love getting to say “husband”. 🙂 Two, I start a new job in 2017, and am so excited for a fresh, new start. Currently enjoying some funemployment between then and now.

This right here is my literal year end positive ;). After 3 years of TTC and a first failed IVF transfer, this strong positive after our second transfer is definitely a great way to end an extremely physically and emotionally trying year!

I was promoted at work. We bought a house. We got engaged. We bought a new car. We had some fun little random adventues. We’ve had a really good year. I hope it stays this way in 2017.

Last year I cried my way in to the new year because my period arrived two days early dashing my hopes of a new year bfp. I made a deal with myself that come hell or high water I would be pregnant or have a child by Christmas this year and I turned 28 weeks pregnant on Christmas Day. So I’m pretty happy with the positive end to this year.
