One more day left before we kiss 2010 goodbye. I can’t lie, 2010 was a challenging year for me. Work wise and on the home front….lots of issues arose but I can say that I learned from all of the challenges and became stronger as a result.
WIth the new decade looming, I know that big things are in store for me next year. I am hoping for a successful year at work and I know that I need to concentrate my efforts in the right areas and not get caught up in the day to day minutia. I need to make daily goals for myself and achieve them. Working smarter, not harder.
On the homefront, continue to work on projects around the house, investing in my family’s future and enjoying even more quality time with my boys and Mr. 1969. I need to work on my patience and learning to say no to projects and obligations that take me outside of the house.
The key to 2011 for me will be staying focused on taking care of my health. Training for my race is jumping off in a major way for the first six months of the year. I am excited and overwhelmed at the same time. I am so happy about having a fitness goal. When I have a goal, something to work towards…I stay motivated. I want to take care of me because it makes me do better in all aspects of my life. When I feel good about what I am eating and exercising consistently…I am a happier person…PERIOD.
Spiritually, I want to continue to read my bible and work on my personal relationship with God. This is an ongoing goal in my struggle to be less selfish and focus more on what I can do for others rather than myself.
Socially, I plan on continuing all of my service projects. I was able to help so many people through my sorority this year. I was able to do everything from volunteering at soup kitchens, feeding needy families at Thanksgiving, planning a community health fair, adopting families in need and providing books and school supplies to playing BINGO with senior citizens….I was able to personally help so many Philadelphia residents. I hope to continue to make time for these days of service as they really make me feel fulfilled.
Now, there are so many shortcomings I need to work on. We talked about my selfishness, there’s laziness, cranky attitudes and all around short temperedness. I have no shortage of faults. Some of you readers have felt the wrath this year. I am not always easy to deal with. What can I say? I’m sorry for the days when I take things too personally. I am striving to let stuff roll off my back in 2011. All I can do is continue to reflect and make adjustments.
I am getting ready for the New Year. How about you? Get Yo Mind Right!
