Wow! 2011 brought a lot of changes in my world. The biggest change being the loss of my daddy. It really made me take a look at the world in a new way and has caused some changes in me personally. I am still trying to work through it all and have not figured it out, but hope too soon. I have become quite reclusive in the last few months as I try to figure it out and am so thankful to all my friends for continuing to be there for me and being patient while I work through it. For some of them, I know it is because they have been here themselves and totally understand. You know who you are.
I am really excited about what is ahead in 2012. I am taking on new challenges at work. I have made some new, amazing friends in 2011 and I have had to cut out some negative people so I don’t get drug down by their pessimism. I know that I no longer want to be that person who is always taking care of everyone, but also want to open myself up to having relationships where we take care of each other. I have learned to admit that I can’t be around people who only make it about them anymore and that it is ok for me to need support too and relationships can come and go in life.
I hope to continue taking on new things at work and learning more. I look forward to some special relationships with friends that have developed this year and also doing some things for myself. I want to take a sushi rolling class. I want to take a dance class. I want to be the best me I can, without making resolutions that will only end in me depressed when I don’t follow through.
What are you looking forward to in 2012? Any big changes on the horizon for you?Think about what you want to do and just do it!
