It is New Year’s Eve and 3 hours away from midnight. I am sitting at home covered in spots with a sleeping beagle lying next to me on the couch and a documentary about landslides playing on the TV. I have been thinking about 2008 and it was truly a bitch of a year. I had major health problems and spent a large part of the year needing mobility aids to help me walk. Fortunately, I found a wonderful rheumatologist who was able to prescribe medication that has given me my mobility back. On the career side of things, I have discovered that I am really good at my job and I do enjoy it. I had to suffer a bad manager who made me seriously consider leaving to the point where I actually meet with recruiters to find a new job. Thankfully a couple of months ago, my manager was moved to another department where she can still make my life hell but at least I am not sitting 6 feet away from her and she no longer can micromanage me.
So what are the things I want to achieve in 2009?
1. Worry less
2. Get fit and improve my health
3. Get organised
4. Do or see something new at least once a month
5. Just enjoy life
What are your new year’s resolutions/goals? Do you think you will be able to achieve them?
