Lots of people are saying goodbye to 2009 like it was a horrible, disfiguring disease of a year. Haven’t heard a whole lot of wistful, “gee, we’re gonna miss you” farewells to ’09.
Personally, I’m fortunate to look back with no small amount of joy. I gave birth to my sweet baby James, and my GOD I love that boy. I also left the corporate 9-to-5 world to work from home my way, freelance style — something I dreamed about for many years but finally had the stones to pursue.
Not that I didn’t have some suckitude last year. I did. I just don’t want to dwell.
Because now it’s a WHOLE NEW YEAR — a new decade, even. That’s cause for some big, important goals, resolutions, dreams, right?
But I’m not sure where to begin. You see, I have so many things I want to achieve or pursue this year. Big ones. You know, like lose 50 lbs, establish a successful business, spend more quality time with family, buy a bigger house, become uber-organized. Just stuff like that. No big whoop.
Sigh. I don’t want anyone to tell me I’m being overly ambitious and setting myself up for disappointment or failure. I know I want it all, and I want it now. I need to prioritize what I can and want to achieve in 2010, or I may end up fretting the new year away and getting nowhere.
OK. So what are you hoping to do this year? Any big plans? Am I the only one shooting for the moon?
