Hello again all. Today, as many of you know is the last day in my entire life that I will be 31. I cannot say that I will miss it, and honestly I have much higher hopes for 32. Even though this past year has been peppered with many instances of my making changes for personal improvement on a whole I still found 31 to be disappointing. 32, you better shine for me.
I am going away on vacation tomorrow. I am not sure how long I will be gone for, but I am crossing my fingers for 3 weeks. While I am gone I will not be updating, it's true, however I plan on updating voraciously when I get back. Since I want this blog to sort-of function as a journal I need to improve my journaling and really try and write everyday if I can.
I really love my birthday (hate the weather though) so it is a good opportunity to do some real nitty gritty soul searching evaluations. Where am I when I turn 32 in relation to where I was last year? Two years ago? Five years ago? Ten? It is okay to have pitfalls every once in a while, but if I am stagnant, if I am not progressing as a person than I am doing nothing. While certain aspects of my life and personality cannot be compared these many years later I can at least gauge it by how I feel about myself.
For instance, ten years ago I was still within the bonds of marriage (and living together). I loved my ex-husband very much, and I still do, but I was stagnant. I was doing nothing to improve my own life, or our lives as a married couple. I was simply floating wherever the currents of anger, frustration, disappointment, etc... took me. I was not living my life, my life was living me.
Right now again I am sort of trapped where I am (geographically, and somewhat emotionally) but I plug away at "the little things" every day that when piled together will serve to gain me a net win. A net win, me??!?!? Mister, I like the way you think!
Quack you when I get back.
