Accomplishing the possimpible....
I started thinking about this past year in reference to my personal goals. While the year itself has been one of great change and many wonderful memories made, I realize that when it comes to my own personal goals....I probably didn't achieve nearly as many as I had wanted to.
I've always been taught that patience is a virtue when it comes to achieving goals, but even more importantly, taking that first step towards them needs to happen as well. So, in an effort to push toward my personal goals, I decided to list them. Enough is enough....I need to stop letting myself down and start pushing myself forward more! I'm tired of disappointment and hurt....it's time to keep up the joy and happiness in my life.
1) Write for a website other than my own blog.
2) Continue to seek out new and interesting music....and write about it.
3) Take more walks on the boardwalk (even during the chilly months)....preferably with headphones.
4) Continue to write my book of letters to people that inspire me.
5) Take more pictures outside of shows.
6) Make peace with my fears.
7) Enroll in a college course....monetarily permitting.
8) Learn a new language (or brush up on a previously learned one).
