This New Year’s Day will not only be my 26th birthday, but a new beginning. As I get older, I want every year to demonstrate that I’ve grown, work hard, and have something new to show for it.
Every year, I set a theme. This year (2008) was “Re-construction”. I wanted to work on myself and get rid of the things and people that I felt were dragging me down emotionally. They were the man I was dating, the job I was hating, and the feeling of being in school forever. I knew that I couldn’t move forward until these three problems were solved. So what did I do? Got rid of the boyfriend (ex-boyfriend), finished my Master’s and got a better job to help a little more financially. It was the best decision I made in my life. As I go throughout my life, my resolution is to set a theme and goals that will set me up for next year’s theme. So now that I’ve gotten better emotionally, I have the motivation to do bigger things.
Next year’s theme: Career & Business
I want to take the first step towards starting my business. I’ve set a few resolutions for next year, but they are still in process (lol). 1) Start my business plan in Jan. 2) Move to a city that will generate revenue. 3) Continue to work in my field of study full-time. Saving the best for last, 4) Continue to work on myself and stay very close to God.
Of course, I hope I find “Mr. Right from God”. Love is always something I try to accomplish but next year, it’s all business, baby!
