This year has been full of many ups and downs, mostly ups, for which I am so thankful! I got a new job, I was able to quit my part-time job, two of my sorors/friends got married, and I have a new Godson! As is my mantra in life, I don’t focus on the negative. I will say I was able to learn a lot about myself and others based on the not so pleasant things that occurred. And for that reason, I wouldn’t change anything that I’ve done….well, maybe some things. 🙂
And my Christmas holiday was awesome! I was able to spend a few days with Southern Mom, which was great, had dinner with my maternal family, I saw my old BFF from high school, and I got to meet my new cousin! I was equally as pleased to spend time with my paternal side; my cousins still keep me laughing, and it was fun going to see “Django Unchained” with some of them the day after Christmas.
I made a vision board mid-way through the year. While not everything came to fruition, or as soon as I would have preferred, I am happy to say most of the things I included have come to fruition. For 2013, I’ll be updating some things while leaving other things right where they are.
All in all, 2012 was pretty ok. I am in a much better place now than I was on December 31, 2011. Once again, I thank my family and friends for sticking with me and for serving as a great support system. I am excited to see what 2013 has in store! I’m beyond thrilled about the Centennial Celebration of my beloved sorority! Other things to look forward to include the 57th Presidential Inauguration, my Girls’ Weekend Getaway, my half marathon, my cousin’s wedding, and another cousin and his wife are expecting! So, focus on the positive and decide what you want to accomplish in the coming year! No matter how you celebrate tonight, be safe, and drink responsibly! Until next year, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
