The blogosphere is snap, crackin’, and poppin’ with talk of resolutions, change, creation, and all things related to starting over in 2011. I feel some kind of way about the upcoming new year. I think I am sensing that I am about to have the opportunity to challenge myself in major ways this year. And that freaks me out.
This year was full of extreme highs and extreme lows. In March, I got to see my third godchild come into this world. Two months later in May, I lost my beloved grandmother who ironically died at the same hospital where my godbaby was born.
I’ve gotten to do a lot of cool things because of my 9-5, but I also became increasingly aware that the way in which I spend that block of time does fulfill me at this point in my life.
I’m at a crossroads.
I’m feeling apprehensive about all of the decisions I have to make. I am scared of all of the things I want to push myself to do. I hate the idea of putting myself out there, but I know that I can never make progress if I don’t give myself that initial push forward.
I don’t subscribe to the idea that a particular year will be “the best yet!” I just want to make every year, hell, every day, count. My goal/ change/resolution for 2011 is to ask myself everyday, “how did I make it count?” And if I don’t like the answer, then I will figure out what I need to do to change this. I owe it to myself to give it my all.
Happy New Year!
Go forth and be fabulous!!!
I’m sharing this just because this song makes me happy!
