Happy New Year, everyone!
I am seeing a lot of 2010 recap blog posts in my Google Reader. The first thing I thought of when I considered writing about my 2010 in review was, “I got married!”
Then I remembered, “Oh shit. That was 2009.”
“2010…2010….uhhhh….what the heck did I do in 2010?”
The truth is that a lot of great things happened to me, and a few not so great things happened. As much as I love reading everyone else’s recaps, I am choosing not to recap my own life in 2010.
I can’t pinpoint exactly why I don’t want to reflect on the past year, but lately I have this compulsive desire to look forward instead of backwards. So that’s what I’m going to do. I am going to keep myself busy thinking about where I need to go rather than where I’ve been.
Here are a few important things I am pondering…
(1) I seem to have lost sight of the purpose of this blog. Was there ever a purpose? Am I just aimlessly writing diary-style or do I have more to offer my readers? This is something I want to figure out as soon as possible.
(2) Knock on wood…my marriage is going really well right now. After a year and a half of marriage and over seven years together, we have found a rhythm. I want to continue to figure out what works for us and what doesn’t.
(3) I need to find purpose in my career. I have a master’s degree that I haven’t put to good use and this saddens me. It seems to be a common theme amongst many people I encounter. But, this is not good. I have six figures of debt tied to education. MUST FIND PURPOSE!
(4) Continued intense focus on my health and wellness. Taking good care of myself has resulted in small miracles in the health department for me. No babies yet, but more “feel good” days, which I consider a great victory.
That’s all I can think of for now in terms of big things.
