2009. A horrible year:
-A had lost his job over Christmas
-I had the most severe flu I had ever experienced.
-The in-laws were trying to build a kitchen around me.
-A and I broke up.
-I met a man I thought was my Prince Charming but he turned out to be a horrible man.
-I then met a couple of other toads in the pond.
-Realised that my friends weren’t that great.
-My clothes got smaller aka I put on weight
-I was plagued by many self-doubts and insecurities.
2010. The potential to be one of the best years I have ever had.
-I have a couple of friends that care deeply for me.
-I still have my thirst for reading and knowledge.
-I am still meeting new, international friends through Couch Surfing.
-I continue to volunteer, not changing, but helping one child or person at a time.
-I am going on the best holiday and life-affirming journey I ever plan to make.
-You wonderful bloggy friends will continue to share my life and;
-I begin this year with a very special man in my life.
I don’t like to make New Year resolutions because they never seem to hang around for long. So instead, I will call them my Hopes and Aspirations if I may?
I will attempt to believe in myself more…I am a special young woman.
I will try and give people the benefit of the doubt…despite the doubts and insecurities I throw at Mr Officer, he hasn’t left.
I hope to lose weight and I’m sure walking around China watching my dinner float in a tank before I pick it will certainly help me to do that.
I will continue to learn to be kinder to myself.
When I go travelling I hope to change, grow and mature learning new things about myself and the world as I explore.
But my biggest hope for the year? That I learn to close a few doors and open some new ones and maybe even some windows if I find the right view.
What are your hopes and aspirations for this year?!
