This year has been a good one for me. I’m on the list for a promotion, Shannon moved in and helped me repaint the entire place. I got to go on a few vacations. I reconnected with a few folk over facebook. My candidate won the election. I got caught up on a lot of my paperwork AND the majority of my clients terminated successfully from their groups. Over all, the only thing I would change would be the month of December. It was a brutal this year–so much grief and no new ways to handle it–and it was a struggle to get through the holidays.
I’m not big on resolutions, but I am big on introspection. I can see the need for growth/change in 2k9. I need to exercise more. I need to devote more time to reading and writing. Hell, I also need to take a good look at my goals for the future.
This Blog will also be getting a make over. New header, color scheme and some new content. But right now, with the whole year ahead of me, I’m pretty damn excited about all the challenges: From saving money to see how Shannon and I change together, I honestly feel that this year is going to be even better than ’08.
What are your plans and goals for the new year? More blogging? More Comments? New topics to discuss?
I’ve not yet sat down and actually written up my bloggy resolutions for ’09. I didn’t really have any in ’08 (though I had goals, and largely failed at them, but I’m not sure how much of that I can blame on myself and not outside forces).
I know I intend to leave some of the fluff behind, and I want to put more actual creative writing up on the blog – possibly a once a week thing. I have enough characters that I shouldn’t be running out of motivation that fast.
As for real life resolutions – a few work related, a few personally related (including some health ones). But the big one?
Buy a house.
