A Year In Review


Every year on my birthday I like to look back and reflect.  And since my birthday is so close to the New year, I tend reflect and write about my goals/resolutions at the end of January.

Here are some of the things I am checking off my lists (thankfully)

  • Graduating with my Masters
  • Paying off ALL of my student loans
  • gaining more confidence when interacting with new people

These were some great accomplishments this year!  I am super excited to have finished my master’s and am so thankful to be starting my new job in a few weeks.  Paying off my student loans-wow!  We were so happy to be able to do that while still paying for my grad school.  The last one is something I have been working on for a few years, but this past year I finally realized I had overcome it (or at least gained enough tools/strategies to not be a nervous nelly in new situations!).

Here are some goals for the next year!

  • waking up at 5 am (consistently)
  • feeling confident in my voice/opinions (but certainly not in an obnoxious way!)
  • reading 20+ books (I’ve already read 4!)

This 5 am wake up is going pretty well.  And although I am definitely more tired at the end of the night, I am sleeping better.  But I also have to conscious when going out with friends that I can’t be out past 10 or 11 pm!  This early wake up was based on a decision on my personal productivity (better in the morning!).  The little bird doesn’t usually wake up until 7/715.  So this is a WHOLE 2 hours that I have in the mornings to read, get lunches ready and other household tasks.  I also try to take some of that time to connect with my husband (un-interrupted).

Do you have any fun, interesting or exciting goals for the next year?  Or have any accomplishments to share?
