I always seem to get a bit emotional around this time of year. I’m not fond of the holiday season, and having my parents absent just made it all worse. However, thinking about the upcoming new year always makes me feel a bit nostalgic. Did I make the right choices? Have I learned my lessons? Did I truly give it my all?
It’s been a whirlwind of a year and I can honestly say it’s been one of the worst years of my life. I can’t thank enough those who made these past 365 days so great, those who stuck with me and helped pull me up when I sunk. I met some lovely people who helped mold my life, and ‘lost’ some who didn’t matter – and some who did matter. On the other hand I’m super excited about what’s to come. Call it old-fashioned or superstitious, still I like to make a list of things I want to achieve. This year’s list will include:
* Get A1C down to a 6.5
* Stop burping/belching in public (act more lady like)
* Be more of an optimist instead of always being such a pessimist
* Attend the gym more than twice a month
* Regain the sexy feline inside of me
* Start acting my age instead that of a 64 year old woman
* Get new ink
* Strengthen my relationships (friends, family, etc.)
* Become a U.S. Citizen
* Truly live
Hopefully when I look back upon this next year I can be proud and see that I accomplished most, if not all of these goals. For 2014, I wish it brings new and positive change and 2013 is the catalyst for that change. I went into 2013 with the desire to have new lasting and rewarding experiences and I was blessed ten fold. That’s what life means to me. To have people that have your back, genuine friendships that allow you to live out loud and make the best memories ever! Seize life.
