A New Year, A New Day?






Ten days into the new year and it doesn't feel any different. For me, I try to take each day as new years day because in reality, each day is a new day...

I do however seem to reflect on the past year as the new year rolls in. In this I try to honestly analyze both the good and the bad in order to progress into the woman I want to be.

This past year was quite eventful for me. I learned a lot about myself and at the same time my once very clear path became blurred and left me feeling lost & unsure. I felt as though I failed, and it was hard for me to look past that. If there's one thing I know about myself, that is, I always think about the future. Even if my plans falls through, I always make long term plans. This year, some of my plans fell through... which lead me to a new path. It's funny how when you're younger, at least for me, I thought I would be somewhere completely different at my age. Here I am, going to be turning 25 this year, and not even close to where I envisioned I would be. At the same time, I am not that very same person who had those envisions years ago. I in-fact am quite different. My likes, dislikes, personality, wants, desires, & maturity has all very much changed which would probably have something to do with where I am at today.

"You are on the road to success when you realize failure is merely a detour." W.G.P.


I could analyze all day long what I should have done, why I didn't, etc. but instead I will focus each new day on what I WILL do to get to where I want to be each day. Instead of thinking long term goals, which I always tend to do, I am going to try something different and plan short term goals. Instead of 5-10 year plans, I will focus more on 1-3 year plans. I'd like to think of myself as an honest person, therefore there are some things I honestly can say I lack that I will work on this year. I will be applying changes to my daily life in hopes of progressing to be the best I can be.

  1. HI:)

    Greetings:)

    The second quote is fabulous. It went straight into my heart. I just thought aboout myself and what I have been doing all along. I find I have been doing the same thing day in day out, every week, every month, every year and there is no change in my life,no progress, no achievemet worth noting.

    Now I understand why. Surely, I have to do things differently to get different results and that is what I want. Doing the same thing again and again make life dull,routine and uninteresting.

    Many thanks on the wonderful quote which opened my eyes.

    Have a nice day:)
