Happy New Year's Day!
What a year it has been. Looking back and keep in mind that I have a memory problem, I find myself reflecting on all that had happened and what I could have done better, what I did well, and most important, what I have learned.
January, I had a surgery I was looking forward to. My ostomy reversal. February, I started this blog. March, April, and May, I concentrated on my goal of becoming more environmentally responsible, break my t.v. addiction, and dealing with very bad abdominal pain. June was Bailey's graduation and my unexpected surgery to remove a lot of my small intestines so I would stop having obstructions. So my garden suffered because I spent the summer recuperating. July, we bought Marlin our RV. August was a lot of small trips. September was the month of celebrating my Mom's 80th birthday. October, LL and I celebrated our 26th anniversary. November and December.......the holidays.
There is so much about my year I could of done better. I could of worked harder to get in better shape. I certainly could of concentrated on being a more positive light in other's life. I definitely could of formed a more rounded life here at home where I am grounded most of my days. What I did well is my improvement on living greener and look forward to making more progress this year. I am doing pretty good at keeping my seasonal depression at bay. What I have learned about myself is my likes and dislikes, what I am good at and what I need to work on, and what is important and what to let go of.
So I welcome 2011. I am thinking about my goals for the year. Not resolutions. When I make resolutions which tend to be short sighted, I never progress and follow through. But I do like general goals for myself. And I want whether small or large, for the goals to be meaningful. So stay tuned for that.
I want to thank all that read this simple little journal of my life. My blog is an important part of me becoming a better me. So stick with me and all my silliness. Who knows where the year will take us.
