I turned a year older last week.
It was one of the best birthdays I have ever had and I am amazed every, single time, I feel that happy.
Since one of my goals this year is to continue growing as a person, in every role that I hold, I decided to make a list of ways that I have grown, perspectives that have changed, and overall differences in my life and thought processes since my birthday of ’13. I was amazed once I sat down to brainstorm, how much I have actually changed and how much random other things in my life have changed.
* I have held down a job for longer than I ever have. Last year, I would have not thought I was capable of it.
* I have weeded out my friend/acquaintance circle and I have come to realize (even more than I did before), how lucky I am to have chosen such awesome friends and that they love me despite myself.
*I have become more open when it comes to reading. I have been reading more and more books that are outside my normal realm of chosen books.
*I am losing weight, without any crazy methods. Simple exercise and moderation (most of the time). I am actually starting to not hate exercising and I am starting to really enjoy the day after a workout and I can feel the soreness that proves I am getting stronger.
*I’ve become more practical. Instead of buying a fuzzy, aqua rug that would have been awesome in my bedroom, I decided to buy a shelf/hamper thing that was decidedly more useful.
*I have become more appreciative of the small things in life. The little moments that I want to etch into my mind forever.
*I have actually succeeded in keeping a journal.
Things just keep getting better!
