Well the New Year is approaching, its time to make the new goals (also known as resolutions). I like many other people make resolutions and I start off good but I fall off around April, but this year I am going to take a new approach to some of my goals.
My Yearly Review of Myself:
This year has been a huge learning experience for myself. I had a lot of good things happen this year, and I lot of personal things that have changed in my life. A goal I’ve had for myself for a while is speaking up for myself, I am a very non-confrontational person and sometimes I let things roll off my back, when I should have spoken up for myself. Well let me say that I am always improving on this trait and I am very proud of myself.
Over this year I lost on my closest friends, one day I guess she woke up and didn’t want to be my friend anymore (sounds elementary doesn’t it). Since I graduated from college I’ve been adjusting to the fact that you don’t talk to your friends everyday, nor do you see them everyday. But what I have realized is the true friends I have it doesn’t matter how often we talk, or see each other…the friendship never changes. Well this one particular friend I felt like was in the circle of my “closest of close” friends basically put me down and I really don’t talk to her anymore. I didn’t even hear from her for the holidays (now I’m sure you all know there is more to the story but I don’t want to disclose too much)…for months I didn’t have peace with the situation but finally I prayed about it and I talked to her one last time…and now I have peace. I know I didn’t do anything wrong to her (that I know of…or that has been told to me) so I had no choice but to let it go and give it to God.
I have also learned so much about sweating the small stuff-I cant make anyone be my friend and honestly I do miss her but it gets to a point of “what can you do”…So with that said basically I’m thankful for the friends that I have, the friendships I have gained, lost, and the ones that have been restored! Everything happens for a reason and sometimes we don’t understand it right away but God reveals everything!
This year I got engaged! I have been dreaming of this moment for my entire life…lol well since I have been older, and its finally here. We got engaged in October and I still cant believe it. I still sit and stare at my ring and wonder if this is all a dream (does that ever go away)?? I cant believe that this next year will all be a preparation year for me working up to 2012 when I will actually be someones wife. I will be marrying my best friend (everyone always says that but its the truth)!! Speaking of engagements and weddings…I get to wedding plan next all next year!!! Wahooo…I have the best bridal party a girl could ask for! I have already sent them cards asking them to be bridesmaids!!!
School and Work…boy oh boy! These two have been a challenge for me this year. I started school again in March online. I started with two classes but I ended up changing to one class per term because Graduate School is a LOT of reading!!! Since the summer it has been hard to regain focus but I’m working on it, I have been able to maintain a 4.0. Not sure if I will still have it once this current class is over because I currently have a B in the course. But hey there is still time! Work has been a total learning process. This is my first job after college, well except for the one that I transferred to Cleveland with when I moved home. I have learned so much about the higher education field, and although I love what I do I think there are some changes that need to be made in this upcoming year (I will leave this subject alone, because I’m not sure who all reads my blog…LOL).
Goals for the Upcoming Year…
~Get in shape for this wedding coming up (I’m going to make 5lb goals instead of one big goal)
~Continue to work on speaking up for myself
~Blog more and try to incorporate OOTD post (I always like reading Outfits of the Day and I think I may try some myself)
~Save More Money (THIS IS A MUST)
I think this is about it…I’m sure along the way I will make more goals and I will blog about them!
What are your goals for the New Year?
