Goals for 2012

Posted on: 1.01.2012

Happy New Year! The year 2011 started off with a lot of potential.  See my list of goals for 2011 by clicking here.  Now that we are at the end, there were some very low lows and very high highs. I tackled fear after fear, started a business, and got engaged.

Travel: We started the year off by going to Disney. Then had a quick trip to Tampa to watch Team USA soccer and go to MOSI. Jesse took a trip by himself to Milwuakee and I took a trip by myself to St. Louis for my college roommate’s wedding. We both travelled somewhere new when we went to Puerto Rico and had a beautiful time!

Photography: I started a business!! I’ve even had a few clients. I have not had as much time to work on the business as I thought I would, but it’s still really fun and I’m so proud I haven’t given up. I also rediscovered shooting film and hope to incorporate this into my professional work next year.

Fear Fighting: As many of you know, I am a shy person. I don’t like to talk about myself nor do I like to talk in front of people. It is because of this fear that I decided to take a local Dale Carnegie course. The first week I cried! Yet I still returned and completed the 12 week course to get a certificate in Human Relations and Effective Communications. It was super scary every week, but I did improve and still apply things I’ve learned. I have used this strength I found to apply to other times when I’ve been scared this year…like kayaking at night in Puerto Rico to see the bioluminescent bay. I overcame my fear and thoroughly enjoyed myself!

Relationship: After another magical year, Jesse and I got engaged! He has been amazing this year, as always, with his never-ending love and support. He always knows what to say and is so much fun to be around. I am definitely the luckiest girl in the world!

Other Events of Distinction: I got my ears pierced. I found a new favorite book: Game of Thrones. I got a promotion at work. I started cooking meals at least once a week. I no longer purchase frozen meals to eat for lunch. I’ve started eating healthier. I dont go into my shell as often and I am much happier.

While there were a lot of great things that happened this year, I think 2012 is going to be even better! Make it a great one!
