Ah yes. 'Tis the season to resolve. In my (seemingly) never ending quest to improve myself and those around me, I am happy the occasion to resolve is here! Although 2011 was a wonderful year, starting a new year with fresh goals and an ambitious to do list is what I love about January.
First, I suppose we should do a summary of 2011 in 30 seconds or less:
January through May: Well, that was a blur. Between working full time and planning our wedding I lost track of time. These months flew by with nothing too spectacular.
May: My husband graduated from undergraduate studies. And the wedding planning really took off!
June: We got hitched! June 17, 2011. Happiest day ever. We also honeymooned...and then 1 week later...
July: We moved to Pennsylvania! We moved into our first home together and I started a new job in a new city. My husband started Medical School (that's when the fun really began!)
August through December: More studying and working. I ran a half-marathon. Visiting family and friends. Traveling back to Michigan a few times and finally spending the new year at our new place.
Phew. It was a busy year but we made it through. I couldn't be happier with 2011.
But, as time is always moving on, so must I. 2012 is shaping up to be a big year too.
Some times it seems daunting that I want to accomplish so much in one year but I know it can all be done. Like I have been for the last few months, I will be documenting all the new year activities and goals as I achieve them. It will be great to look back and be able to see all that I have done. I love making goals and checking them off the list, not to mention it's fun to write about my failures.
Here is what I have planned:
So what do you have planned? Have you resolved to accomplish things (big or small!)? How about blogging? Or commenting on your favorite blog? Just a suggestion!
Happy New Year and Happy New Goals!
