One word to describe 2010:
Comeback - a return to a former higher rank, popularity, position, prosperity, etc.
In 2010 I concentrated on getting back to being me. I shed the weight of past, the ideals of being someones something and returned to being me. Returning to the things that brought me joy before, that made me who I am.
I got back on the horse, literally and figuratively.
I moved back to the only place I have ever called home.
I changed jobs and found a new passion for my career all over again.
I took a trip MX would have never allowed.
I am out and about more than I have been in years.
I make decisions every single day that are for me. That emphasize what will make me happy.
I returned to being the person I truly am, not the compartmentalized version someone wanted me to be.
The word that will encompass 2011:
Live - to experience or enjoy life to the full.
I am going to live a life for me in 2011.
I am going to focus on relationships that make me stronger. Encourage and support me.
I am going to live for my dreams. Consciously.
Concentrate my efforts towards the things I hold dear; make my new house a home, travel, get back to showing horses and direct my financial earnings towards those things that matter.
I am not going to be hindered by the events of the past. They are that. In the past.
They do not define me but rather make me who I am.
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined."
~ Henry David Thoreau
