Woohoo!! Many have been saying that 2016 was a really crappy year and well, I hate to jump on the bandwagon but it certainly was not my favorite either. A lot of bad memories but buried in those bad memories are some great highlights and since it’s a new year, I’m going to be positive! It’s a new day, set new goals, realistic goals though. LOL. I’m just saying, there are a lot of people out there with these outrageous goals that even they question whether or not their goals are attainable. Challenge yourself but not to the point where you will want to give up. One of my professors in journalism always said “don’t forget to KISS” aka “keep it simple stupid.” So yea….simple yet challenging.
Anyway last year I said I would keep up with my blog and that TOTALLY did not happen. Aside from working a 9-5 job, I decided to go back to school to pursue a bachelors in accounting. I have been doing accounting since I was 17 so it just made sense to make a career out of it, also for a reliable source of income. I guess eventually we have to grow up. I love my job but accounting is just not my passion. I have an itch for something else, something crafty, something that involves being hands on, something creative but I – like a lot of people in the world – don’t know where or how to start. If I can keep up with my studies I will be about 2 years away from graduating, so it’s on!! In the past I have always said I want to do this and I want to do that but I just never do. Not because I can’t get to my goals but because I end up biting more than I can chew and not setting goals. So now I have them!! I have to stop looking for the opportunity but instead create my own opportunity. Time to hit the books, get back into shape and pursue something I’ve been putting on the back burner for a long time now. This year is the year, this is your year, this is my year!
So here’s to a new fierce and fabulous year, to a year full of new adventures, to a year full of happiness and laughter and of course, success! CHEERS!
I am ready for you 2017! Bring it.
