Last New Year’s, I wasn’t out having fun popping bottles or getting a kiss at midnight by some sexy man. Instead, I was at home making a painting of 2013, which I lost a few days ago. I painted the background Aqua. I made the 2013 numbers really stand out in yellow block letters. The confetti… gosh, I used glitter paint in every color you could think of because I knew that 2013 was my YEAR!
Now that 2013 is over, I’m proud that I took the leap on many of my goals and decided to share them on my blog. So, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane.
- I created an online dating profile and went on a date. Even though the date didn’t pan out the way I wanted, I got the experience to learn more about what I want in a potential boyfriend. This year, I will define what I’m seeking in a relationship.
- I’ve built better social skills. Ok, I’m a shy person and I tend to over think things. In 2013, I actually opened up. Now I’m really in the moment. I get a little nervous and it shows through my body language, but even with all of that I’ve improved tremendously because I put more effort into building relationships, hanging out with friends and meeting and making new friends both in-person and online.
- My last two goals were finding a new career and learning how to drive. I did just that… well on the career part. I found a new job in a healthier environment with tons of growth opportunities. I don’t have my driver’s license, but that is my top goal in 2014.
My word for 2014 is Time. I have so many goals, and sometimes I just think of the finish product and not about the effort it takes to complete them. Sometimes, I don’t even get started or put my best effort forward because I didn’t prepare. Toward the end of 2013, I noticed how important time really was and why I shouldn’t waste it on petty or stupid things that I don’t have any control over.
This year, I really want to work on bettering myself and becoming my best self. This woman that I will become will be more relaxed and self-assured in her abilities, and she’ll step out of her comfort zone to attain her goals. This woman is getting out of her own way and just going after what she truly wants in life because she believes that she can actually do it. She doesn’t define herself based on what other people think of her. This woman is in me and she’s finally going to make her appearance in 2014.
Thanks for showing your girl some love. Happy New Year!!!
