December 31st 2009 Reflections

This is not a very well thought out post. I discovered if I don’t write this now, time may just pass by…

The last few days have been that strange limbo period between Christmas and the New Year. For the first time in my life I made a conscious decision to utilise the time to reflect on the year, review the goals I set and develop some sort of scorecard of my achievements. The next step after the review was to set a vision and goals for 2010.

Beautiful end to the day

I realised that 2009; challenging and gloomy at some points was nonetheless an awesome year for me.

I realised that even though everyone assumed 2009 was going to be a mediocre year, for me it was great.

I certainly didn’t think this the entire time, and had several moments of panic and doubt at the actions I had to take to achieve my goals; but all in all faith got me through.

My faith and my dreams were tested a lot this year and I’m glad I found the strength at all times to move on.

I definitely didn’t get through this year on my own; I had the support of my family, the f and friends. They have all been so wonderful to me and I only hope I can be there for them as much as they have been for me. I found encouragement even from merely reading certain blogs.

In 2009 my motto was to Dream…Hope…Believe.

I have so much to be grateful for; I am back in the city I was this time last year and so much has changed. Now I’m planning a future with the man I love and got the job I wanted. I am so blessed and I’m grateful for my blessings…because as the song goes “count your blessings, name them one by one; and it will surprise you what the Lord has done!”.

2010 is the year I strive to be the best I can be.

Happy New Year everyone!
