I think a lot of times we focus on what we didn't do in a given year rather than celebrating the successes we did have. I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I set redefine my goals and consider setting new ones. I do that all year long though. Tomorrow I will blog about some of the things I'm putting on my "to-do" list for the upcoming year, but for tonight, I'm just focusing on celebrating 2009!
It's certainly been a far from perfect year and, oh boy, has it had its challenges. Bigger challenges than I think I ever imagined. If you told me a year ago that I would be sitting here, a single mother, about to finalize my divorce, I would never have believed it. Though my friend Cindy was certain it would happen sooner than I thought. I think she could see that I was so close to my breaking point. I didn't think I would find the strength to do it...to leave. And I did!! Leaving was the hardest thing I've ever done and I've second guessed myself more times than I can count. But I sit here today and I know, deep in my soul, that getting out of my marriage was absolutely, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the right thing to do.
And a few more things I'm celebrating tonight...
- My PTS sweatshirt
- 3 NPC competitions (top 5 in 2 of them)
- A job doing what I LOVE
- Bodybuilding.com Transformation of the Week
- Got my real estate license
- Happy Kids!!!
- Meeting some amazing people who have forever changed my life
I'm ready to say goodbye to 2009. I'm ready for whatever the future holds...I am ready to MAKE IT HAPPEN.
