Yep, it’s that time of year…time to make resolutions. And just like every year, I have high hopes that I’ll keep those resolutions. That’s when I think back to my 2008 resolutions and realize I can’t even remember what they were. I’m sure it was along the lines of workout, journal, read, etc. Same ol’, same ol’.
But this year I’m serious. No, really I am. It’s time for CHANGE, which is a theme that we’ve been living with for a few months now and it’s definitely something I think I can get on board with. For the past few years, I’ve been in this “thing”…kind of like a running river. I’m definitely going places (Oklahoma City–>Madison, WI–>San Francisco) but it’s like I don’t know where I’m going. I’m just along for the ride. Which has been great and very entertaining, but I’ve been the passenger. Just along for the ride.
With my theme of CHANGE, it’s actually a way for me to take control. To be proactive. To set goals and plans. To achieve. To make a difference. To do something good. To live life.
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about the start of a new year. It could be due to the excitement of starting a new job next week, but I don’t think that’s it. I believe I’m finally ready to make the change and start living life for me.
Here’s to an amazing 2009! *Cheers
