I have to say that 2010 was a good, but hard year. The good kind of hard, the growing pains kind of hard, the wow I’m actually sleeping on the floor of my boyfriend’s sister’s living room for months at a time kind of hard. The acknowledgment of mistakes on my part and then everything that goes into fixing those mistakes kind of hard. And I am satisfied with that.
2011 is the year (I hope) for new beginnings. I’ve always liked the number 11, so symmetrical, and in some ways – because I’m all about anthropomorphizing things – a feminine number, graceful like a ballerina.
The Wedding will be this year (THIS year. I’m getting married THIS year), and with that comes other fun activities (bachelorette? honey moon? Yes yes). I’m hoping (fingers crossed) to start a new, better, broader, relevant career this year and with that comes a whole slew of new experiences (possibly a move? definitely a new apartment) and new challenges.
I’m planning on knocking off some Life List goals in the upcoming months. Grand Canyon? For sure. Tattoo? I hope so. Finding boots that fit me? God willing. It’s going to be an adventure, one that I need buddies for, cheer squads and devil’s advocates. I’m looking to you to keep me motivated (when I struggle at motivating myself), inspired (when I’m floundering), and surprised (because ya’ll have a knack for knocking my socks off).
So 2011! Let’s have some adventures. I have some plans, let’s see where they take me.
