2009 is coming to end and hot damn, what a year it was.
Sometime in the spring I thought my big story of the year was that I was going to India.
Fast forward and I went to India AND bought a condo. Something I had dreamt of doing, something I had so desired. Because when you are told for years that you won’t be able to do it without the
jackass you married, it mattered.
It mattered a lot.
What also mattered was your unwavering support this year, as these past years. I can never quiet explain how great it is to have blog readers like I have. You have been with me when I am low, super low and super high. You have cheered me on, kicked my ass and given me virtual hugs and understanding that is hard to find other places. For that, I thank you again.
For 2010, we all should make a list of what we set out to do.
1. Thoughts become things. Choose the positive ones!
Nothing is more true. This year I definitely learned even more about that than ever before. Thinking positively, putting positive energy into the world, will be forever high on my list. At times in my life, I was so ill, I wanted to die and tried really hard. Now I look back at this rich life, full of love and friends and accomplishments and I am grateful I am still around to see it.
2. Reduce debt.
This means staying on the budget I worked out in November. I have some very specific goals in regards to that and I am going to be dead set to achieving them.
3. Deliver the most kick-ass XXXX plan that I have been tasked it at work.
4. To not settle. In no area.
When I left the job at the devil company, there were a few people who were concerned. “The economy sucks, what if the new job doesn’t work out.” And I was scared. For months I was worried. But guess what, this wasn’t just about going back to nonprofit. This job was about my integrity and my sense of fairness and standing up for what I believe in and who I am. I am happy I switched jobs. Delighted that I did. It was the perfect decision for me. I think I would have withered away at the other one. My brain as well.
And relationship, oh hell, our favorite topic. Aside from not getting the amount of proper sex I want and desire, it’s ok. I get lonely sometimes, but while traveling through India, there were only extremely few occasions where I felt lonely. Life was full of color, people, excitement, new things.
5. If 2. works out well and I do a good job from Jan-April, I will try to go on a trip to a few National Parks in Arizona.
I went to see some friends in Germany and they did this in 2009 and holy hell, AMAZING. I have to go. I might need a companion, so if anyone is remotely vaguely interested to meet up there or so, lemme know. :)
Let’s hope 2010 is full of the same things, no matter where I am, with whom I am.
And mostly, I want to be me and I want to, how does one say, dance like no one’s watching as often as possible.
I wish you a fantastic new year full of “you”. Be you, love life, be thankful, keep coming back to read and be my friend. Health, love and laughter!
PS: Last purchase of 2009….I think the “Furminator” for my Lani. Cause, damn, my brother has one for his lab and that dog doesn’t shed anymore. Fantastic.
