What A Difference A Year Makes...
Today is my big day.
I’m officially one year older (28 years old) and feeling three years wiser.
For the last three years, I’ve made a promise to myself to never let 365 days go by without any personal growth and progression. This particular past year has felt like a decade with all that has happened both good and bad.
Initially I wasn’t too excited about my birthday coming up. But it occurred to me over the weekend how blessed I am to see another year. The obvious reasons got to me in the beginning, I’m freaking 28! Well, at least I look like I am turning 22, LOL. I’ll take the younger look along with my mature mentality.
In the last year a few things have happened to me:
I got better job in the industry I love, Oct. 06
I lost my father a day later Oct 06, still not at all over this.
I lost my great uncle whom I loved dearly in Feb 07.
I got a promotion and raise in May 07.
I gained the strength to let go of certain people in my life that needed to be gone, May 07.
I began my journey to obtaining my MBA in Jul 07.
I lost my little play brother (my little brother’s best friend) in Aug 07.
I am now 28, Sept. 07
I am going to my 10 high school reunion next week, Sept 07.
And it pleases me that I have a few more things waiting to manifest in 2007.
I am determined to make my new year count!
