Hey all! I just wanted to get in one final, quick post before the majestic 2013 comes to an end.
This year has brought a lot of laughter, a lot of loss, and a lot of everything in between.
Overall, it was a year of complete personal growth and change.
I’ve learned who my true friends really are, as well as those who just ended up being there when they wanted to be. While that circle of friends has gotten quite a bit smaller, I’m still very satisfied and I have no regrets about those who have fallen behind. I’ve definitely gotten more into the mindset of thinking for myself, and also in finding a better balance in spending effort on myself and on others.
Career-wise, I feel like things still have a long way to go. Having goals is a great thing, and even though I haven’t quite reached mine yet, it just gives me something to continue to strive for. As I had mentioned earlier, I think 2013 was more of a preparation year of sorts, and I’m definitely ready for what the future has in store. The things that used to hold me back, don’t anymore, and the future is completely wide open and I’m ready for it. I’m just ready. I made it through the busy season at work, and now have more time available to prepare for bigger and better things. I’m a little nervous, but very excited.
My Christmas was great. I’ve had some vacation time away from work, which I am continuing to enjoy. I was able to spend time with my family, my pets, and my wonderful friends whom I haven’t seen in quite some time. And unlike last year, if you recall, I am not actually spending New Year’s alone! Hooray for friend! (Yes, just one. One is all you need!)
I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas, and an even better New Year’s. Let’s all leave 2013 in the past, and look forward to what 2014 will bring. I’ll be sure to update more frequently, as I am able to get back into the swing of things. Have a great night, and Happy New Year’s! 😀
