so… with 2007 behind me, i feel i can breathe a sign of relief… this is the first year.. where i was REALLY excited for the year to change… and i foresee major change in the new year
i peeked back at my blog archives for the year last night, it was fun to reflect and look back… but i also noticed a lot of my blog last year, especially in the start of the year.. was "fluffy talk" to overshadow what was really going on…..
i realize now just how unhappy i was with my life, and where it was at. friends have been saying to me, not that i wasnt fun to be around a year ago.. but they can truly see a change in me…. see how much happier i am, and that makes me smile.
it wasn’t easy, 2007 wasnt a breeze… but nothing ever comes easy.. i learned that early on in life… i had just lost the grasp on that girl who was independent and driven…. and excited for life and what it has in store for her……
well 2008 is all about her, not in a selfish way but in a way of not losing sight on what is good for me, in all respects.
some major things that happened in 2007, that have made me stronger
i left a relationship i was in for a looooonng time (too long)
i moved out on my own, for really the first time ever.. cause college doesnt count and living with someone doesnt either
i reconnected with tons of friends, making time for them and fun times were definitely had!
i lost my best friend, and kitty of 20 years
i found out my dad is diabetic
i watched as some of my close friends had some trying times, not sure how to comfort them
on the flip side i saw some of my friends also regain control of their lives.. and moved on to bigger and better things
i opened my heart for new things, as scary as that can be
in 2008 i have some goals set.. not really resolutions, but things i would like to keep in mind as i trudge through another year:
i want to enjoy my last year being in my 20’s (eeeek)
i want to create more for me… this is always a struggle
i want to be healthier, eat, exercise, and mentally
pretty simple right?
happy new year everyone 😉
