As 2008 comes to a close we all seem to look into the past year to see what we've learned and what we can do better for 2009. For myself, I did a lot of growing as an individual. I felt heartbreak and happiness and learned to better myself through mistakes made.
I learned that no matter how much something hurts at one moment that it truly will get better. It doesn't usually happen immediately, but it does happen. I learned that I can do whatever I put my mind to, I just have to get up and actually do it! I learned that being a mom is so much more than just being a disciplinarian. It's about being there for your child in every way, shape and form no matter how crummy you are feeling. I learned that life has a way of surprising you when you least expect it and bringing something good in. The good may not last long but it's definitely something to look forward to.
I learned that good things may end due to circumstances that are out of your control. It doesn't matter how much you care for that person, some things just cannot be controlled. I learned that it's okay to be selfish sometimes and not answer your phone, or be at someone's constant beck and call. It's okay to just be you. Be comfortable in your skin and don't worry about what other people think.
I feel that the world is here from us to learn from. Take advantage of what you're given for free and run with the possibilities!
In 2009 I'm hoping that several things will happen.
1. I'd love for Amber Watson Events to take off. I want clients galore, but my goal is five.
2. I need to get off my rear end and get back into running. I miss my Navy body and good stress relief!
3. I'm going to start acting for me and only me. I will do everything for me. I will try not to care about what other people think. I want to be happy with me, bottom line.
I hope you all have a great 2009 and enjoy this last day of 2008.
