Happy New Year!
Thursday, January 01, 2009
I've decided that 2008 was the year I took care of my finances and decided on a plan for grad school. Now that those problems are on their way to being solved, this year needs to be about me, my person: my health, my skin, taking vitamins, getting sleep. Now that I have a job I like, and I've sent applications to grad school, I can only wait for things to happen in my favor... but that is not what I can do regarding losing weight! My boyfriend finished his Masters and he's working as a researcher and teacher, very likely he'll be pursuing teaching and freelancing as a career. So, in 2008 we squared that stuff away. Now its time to work actively toward more basic goals. I've met some people this year who really have it together. They are just as smart as me and they've done some amazing things in their life: and not the typical life that's expected, which is something I seem to have an aversion to. The thing that seems different between me and them (in my mind) is that they take care of themselves in a way where they have energy and support because of their lifestyles. Granted, many of these women are way older and make a lot of money, but its also good to see how they do it. I need better habits that will get me closer to being that kind of a woman, and I need to work actively toward that goal because it is not something that simply falls into your lap.
