Yay! A new year is here and I am so excited!
2011 was a roller coaster of happy things and sad things and 2010 was much worse. I had hopes that 2011 would have been my year, but I'm blessed to say at least I made it through. I am so hopeful for 2012 and all that lies ahead. I truly feel it will be my year to make things happen and really, truly be happy.
For one, I should be completing my A.S. degree in Paralegal Studies this year. A huge accomplishment for someone who has struggled for years trying to balance school and full time work. I can't wait for that. Perhaps I'll be inspired to go even further and make more of my education. One step at a time.
I'm feeling strongly about continuing to make sure I am only allowing positivity in my life. That is something easier said than done, especially here in my hometown. It's incredible how much jealousy, envy, hate, and negativity is out there in the world and how much of an impact it can have. I will strive to speak positive words, not "should" on myself, and refrain from using "can't." There is nothing I can't do.
The beginning part of this year is make it or break it for me in Orlando and with my current relationship. I want and deserve to be happy after hanging by a thread and fighting to survive the past 2 years. That's why this year is the year for me to make things happen. I miss DC. I love it there. It is the home I carry in my heart. I feel very strongly that my career will be full speed and fulfilling there. It's very hard to have those feelings and not jump on them. But, I agreed to come back home, give things a chance, and determine if the sacrifice was worth it. I feel confident and happy that I will figure that out in 2012.
I'm hoping to spend more time giving to others, attending Church more often, and pushing myself to do things I wouldn't normally do. I'm hoping to travel and can't wait to go to Mexico again in a couple weeks! :) I hope I spend more time blogging this year than I did in the final months of last.
I am looking forward to sharing 2012 with all of you in this great, big bloggie family and see where this year takes us. Great things are ahead!!!
