2010 – That was not easy – but easier…

December 31st, 2010 by Gallagher John 2 Comments

Don’t you wish we had one of these buttons for ‘life’?  Hard to believe that 2010 has come and gone.  In the Gallagher household, it was another year of growth for us as a family.  Somewhere I heard that the 3 most stressful things in life to do are: 1) get married, 2) start a new job, and 3) move. 

Well, thanks to my very understanding and beautiful wife, Chris, I won’t have to complete number 1 any time in the near future, but we did go through 2 and 3 this year, aside from all the other fun stuff!!

In April, I started a new chapter in my career with Simpler, Inc as a Senior Consultant.  I have found this new opportunity to be challenging and rewarding.  Then, in June, we sold our home to a nice family and moved down the street into a home that we had been building for nearly 2 years.  The real estate market, to say the least, has posed MANY challenges  over the past few years, not just 2010.

To say that it was an EASY year would be a lie.  However, I know that it was EASIER as a result of having my own written Life Plan to provide a filter for some of the decisions that I needed to make in 2010.  Many tough choices were made in our family this year.  Choices that have us all looking forward into 2011.  There are too many people to list that I need to thank for pouring into our lives this year. 

Thanks for reading my posts this past year.  It is my wish that they add value to your life. 

So, was your 2010 easy?  Let me know how it went by commenting below!!

    Hey John,

    I enjoyed your blog this year. I’m looking forward to reading it in 2011. You’ve always been there for me and Lisa, and you’ve helped us through a lot this year.

    I can say that I went through 2 and 3 this year too. It’s definitely not easy, but it was made easier with help of being prepared. It’s made Lisa and I stronger throughout this year.

    Looking forward to a wonderful 2011!
