In about 11 hours’ time, the clock will strike midnight and 2010 will be a thing of the past. To be honest, if I look back at this year, I can’t really remember much – there’s just two major things that stand out for me:
(1) I travelled overseas for the first time – which required kicking myself in the arse and throwing caution to the wind. It was rather liberating, and aided in proving to myself, once and for all, that it’s more than ok to think of yourself once in a while and not consider the opinions of others.
(2) (And this is definitely the most exciting thing that happened in 2010…) – I met the love of my life and he just so happened to feel the same way about me. It’s been wonderful, but it’s not come without its own challenges. One thing’s for sure – the path I’ve generally travelled has never been easy – there’s just always been something along the way – even if it was just a teeny weeny little speedbump. But it’s ok – somehow, they’re always overcome.
What will 2011 bring? I have no idea and quite honestly, I don’t want to think about it. I’m not the type to draw up a list of resolutions just because it happens to be the end of one year and the beginning of another. One shouldn’t just make goals and resolutions because it’s a tradition – but rather – do it because it’s really something you want, whether it’s 1 January or 23 October – doesn’t really matter.
What I will try to do though, in 2011, is attempt to learn how to take things in my stride…one step…or half a step…at a time.
Happy New Years and all the best for what lies ahead! Cheers!
