Hello Blog World!!!
Well, it's 2009 and I'm back!!! Since it's my first post of 2009 I'm going to talk about those dreadful New Year's Resolutions, I know, I know, but I'm really happy with mine this year so therefore I just have to share it with everyone.
My New Year's Resolution for 2009 is FOLLOW THROUGH. That's it - that's my mantra. I don't have some long drawn out list of things I'd like to accomplish (yeah right that's a lie...) just a two word mantra. FOLLOW THROUGH, FOLLOW THROUGH, FOLLOW THROUGH!
I'm usually pretty good at this but sometimes I get so caught up in everything that I get overwhelmed and I get into this place where if I can't accomplish it and accomplish it perfectly I'm just not going to do it.
So I'm looking at life realistically. I'm not perfect, no one is perfect, and I can't expect myself to accomplish everything and do it perfectly. So my goal with FOLLOW THROUGH is to do just that keep reminding myself to stick to it and FOLLOW THROUGH! It's better to be doing what you want to be doing, living the life you want to be living, and being the person you want to be then letting opportunities pass you by because you're afraid you won't be able to do it perfectly. Just do it and FOLLOW THROUGH.
This is especially important to me in this the year of my 30th birthday (I know gasp! I look so young don't I?) Don't worry I'm not going to freak out - I'm actually excited and ready to embrace 30. I feel like 0-30 is all about learning about life, how to live life, and figuring out who you want to be. I feel like 30-40 you get to become that person you want to be and now is the time to embrace that person! I don't want to miss out on any of this because I didn't FOLLOW THROUGH on becoming who I want to really be.
So that's it - my mantra - FOLLOW THROUGH. One of the things I want to be better about following through on is updating this blog. I miss it, and it's just such a great way to communicate with people. So expect to be reading a lot more about me, my life, my experiences, the books I'm reading, etc!
What are your New Year's Resolutions? And for all my friends turning 30 this year - how are you feeling about it? Are you ready to embrace it or going to continue telling everyone you're 29? :)
