Technically, I have lived through two full decades. However, 2000-2010, is the first full decade I really remember. I was 16 when the world welcomed in 2000, as we all anxiously awaited to see if that whole Y2K thing would be the end of us all. Oh how anti-climactic that silly little Y2K was - the clock strikes midnight January 01, 2000 and nada, nothing, zilcho.
I just can't believe that 10 years have passed so fast!!! A lot happened in the past 10 years. I graduated high school, college, and began graduate school. I traveled the world, and managed to transform myself from a little girl who was too shy to go into the local video store by herself into a women that fearlessly travels the world solo. [Okay-maybe not perfectly fearlessly-but I still did it]
I can't help but wonder what the next 10 years will bring? I've always been a rather general long-term goal setter. Long term goal #1: be happy! In high school, we were meant to do an assignment of what we thought/wanted our lives to look like in 10 years. My only goal was to be happy, because as long as I was happy the rest didn't matter. I continue to live my life in that fashion, one step at a time. Yes, I come up with individual short term goals for myself; earn this degree, earn that degree, travel here, travel there, etc. etc etc.
The point is that I am comfortable taking in the pieces to the path of my life as they come to me one step at a time. I don't need to see the end of the road to imagine myself successful in life just as long as I am happy along the way.
New Year's Resolution for this Year: as I only have one course of study left until I acquire my MA degree, with my lighter academic load I am hoping to use all that lovely free time to work and earn some cold hard cash. Which brings me to my real new years resolution: a financial budget that shall allow me to partake in my next latest greatest adventure in this life. :-)
New Year's Resolution for the Decade: the pursuit of all that is good in this world. That may be to vague for some to understand - I just mean to pursue living my life in a positive fashion that will bring good things and happiness to me.
A New Year's Wish: that light, love, and happiness will fill the world and take away all the pain.
Goodbye for now - with cheers - and love for all.
