Every year around my birthday I like to make a list of goals for the following year. I also take a look at the past year and take note of the highlights and goals accomplished. So, here goes:
Last year my main goal was to get a new job. I took my time about it but finally resigned from my job of 14 years and started my new job in July, just one month shy of my birthday. I love working in the field that I studied for years ago.
I also had a goal last year to apply for grad school for my masters in clinical counseling and by September 2nd I will have everything the program requires in. I take my entrance exam test on the 2nd.
I got to play a lot this past year. We had a great Halloween Party and New Years Eve party at the mountain. I got to travel to Colorado for a cousin's wedding and some family time this past summer. I also learned a new sport-wakeboarding. I put in lots of miles with my sweet running group and enjoyed a ton of half marathon races.
This next year I'm looking forward to hopefully getting into grad school and starting the program. I hope to learn and grow in my new job as well. I look forward to watching my 8 year old play football, basketball and run track as well as grow as third grader in his academic pursuits. 37 is going to be a great year!
